JHS

Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9

We DO NOT WRITE the Basic Education Certificate Education nor the Cambridge Check Point.

After Year 9, students are transitioned to the Senior School. Transitioning is however not automatic. Students must pass an internal entrance exam in the 2nd week of June.

Overview

All students do all subjects in JHS which include:
  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Integrated Science
  • Social Studies
  • French
  • Ghana Language and Culture(Asante Twi)
  • Home Science
  • Music (ABRSM)
  • IC3, GS4 and Programming

In the areas of English Language, Mathematics, Integrated Science and French, we combine the Ghana Education Service JHS Curriculum with the Cambridge Secondary 1 Curriculum .

 

Our Social Studies combines aspects of the GES Religious and Moral Education, History among others.

 

With Home Science we teach all aspects of the Basic Design and Technology in the GES curriculum but pay particular attention to the Home Science. We give our learners basic skills in cooking, sewing and home management. Every students or learner must sew their own dress for Achievers Day in Year 9.

 

Music: The ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) is an examinations board and registered charity based in London, UK, which provides examinations in music at centres around the world. We write the Theory Exams in March every year which is COMPULSORY for every student. However, the Practical exams in June is optional. Learners choose their preferred Musical Instrument and they are prepared the exam.

 

IC3, GS4 and Programming

 

The IC3 certification (Internet Core Competency Certification) is a global benchmark for basic computer literacy, including operating systems, hardware, software, and networks.

The Internet and Computing Core (IC3) Digital Literacy Certification tests basic computer skills and understanding of the Internet to promote success in school, work and life. CCI Learning is the world's leading courseware developer for IC3.

IC3 Global Standard 4 (GS4) is the newest release in the IC3 family of digital certification exams. GS4 aligns the IC3 standard to the most current and relevant digital literacy requirements, and addresses several new concepts common to digital literacy, such as:

  • Social media
  • Collaboration
  • Digital devices
  • Research fluency
  • Critical thinking
  • Cloud computing
