Students usually brag about their High Schools by naming prominent alumni. That makes it a big deal if a school has a President for an alumnus. Kuulpeeps has compiled a list of all leaders of Ghana and the High Schools they attended. Achimota School tops the list with four leaders, followed by Accra Academy with two.
This is the full list of former leaders and the High Schools they attended.
The first President of Ghana was in office for 5 years, 240 days; between 1 July 1960 – 24 February 1966. He attended Government Training College (soon to become Achimota School) and graduated in 1930.
