A SHORT HISTORY
The Sisters of St. Louis founded St. Louis Senior High School in 1952 with a class of twelve girls. There are 1700 people living there presently. They underwent a change of address when they relocated to Oduom in Kumasi in 1960. We have excellent news to share, therefore the Administration Block was constructed and consecrated in honour of the “Annunciation” (the feast of Annunciation, March 25, 1960). The growing demands of the school led to the construction of other structures. In girls’ education, the focus was on achieving high standards in professional topics and fostering peaceful relationships within the community. Christian leadership development was emphasised, and enthusiasm for drama, poetry, and music was promoted. One particularly noteworthy aspect is the Debating Society, which helped the pupils become aware of the numerous serious issues facing society.
St. Louis School is a learning community. The school fosters a compassionate environment and a feeling of community by valuing each individual. We want to enrich and promote the brain and soul of everyone who enters our Catholic, multicultural community. Our setting supports kids in strengthening their relationship with God, choosing wisely, and achieving their academic goals.
Our motor, “UT SINT UNUM,” encapsulates a SLOPSAN’s life. AMEN. May us work together to advance God’s Kingdom on earth.
The school has excelled in both academic and non-academic areas of life producing many responsible adults in several productive areas of Ghana’s economy.
