HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL

The Yaa Asantewaa Girls’ Secondary School was founded in September 1951. It was one of the several schools that Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the country’s first president, founded as part of the swiftly expanding educational initiative following Ghana’s independence.

Yaa Asantewaa, the revolutionary heroine and Queen mother of Ejisu in Ghana’s Ashanti Region, is the name of the school. Despite her diminutive stature, Yaa Asantewaa has the heart of a lion. In 1900, she was the one who led the Asante Kings in a conflict with the British colonists. Even though Nana Yaa Asantewaa, the school’s patron, did not physically win that fight, her spirit and mission will always motivate us. The school bears her name in an attempt to honor her memory forever. We all owe the Asante chiefs and landowners a debt of appreciation for their coordinated efforts and selfless sacrifices that made the land available for the project. In return, the institution has provided impartial service to the entire country, not only the Ashanti Region or the Kumasi Metropolis.
