The Ghana Education Service (GES) following the ongoing 2021 selection of schools by the students who sat for the 31st edition of the BECE for School has released a list of the category A, B, C & D Senior High Schools in the country.
The category determines the performance of a, particularly Senior High School. Category A schools are usually rated best or top Senior High School with Category B and C as average school and Category D as low performing school.
Senior High Schools in the four categories are all public second cycle institutions. GES this year has added more than 130 government Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions to the school selection register.
