About the SHS

The School is envisioned to be a world-class standard facility that will further promote the STEM Educational agenda in Ghana, being a part of a grand plan to increase the Science – Humanities ratio from the current 40:60 to 60:40 in favour of the Sciences.
Dr Adutwum said the government’s priority in STEM education is part of Ghana’s reform project to reposition the educational system to equip learners with 21st-century skills.
”It is also to prepare the critical mass of empowered Ghanaians for socio-economic transformation so that they can become active participants in the 4th Industrial Revolution.” He said.
Model STEM SHS
The project, the Minister stated, was part of the 11 state-of-the-art model STEM SHS’ being built across the country to be equipped with 12 laboratories including a STEM pathway, to be established in some existing SHS’.
The Minister urged the graduands to put to good use the knowledge acquired at AIMS and be innovative such that they can identify challenges as an opportunity for solutions.
