Accra - School Report Question and Answers

What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?

The college counselor failed to submit proper paperwork on time last year causing some kids to miss out on top schools, like Oxford. I'm not counting on the school to do anything for my kids. I will get several copies of transcripts when I depart just as a precaution. They are slow to respond to colleges; we have to ping multiple times to get something done. - Mar 2021

There are academic counselors who are familiar with universities worldwide. They are able to help connect with various university representatives, GIS has a strong alumni association and alumni often come to the school to share information about the school they are attending. - Jul 2020

Generally a pretty good counseling program, particularly at the elementary and middle school levels. Good counselor-led interventions to prevent bullying. College counselors have been criticized for their focus on US universities and colleges as the school is quite diverse with a lot of graduates looking at British, European options. - Jan 2020
