Accra - School Report Question and Answers

Aside from school fees, are there required expenses such as uniforms, laptops/tablets, musical instruments, or field trips that parents are expected to cover? What are the approximate costs?

For elementary (Kindergarten), no extra fees. No uniforms (you can buy a gym shirt but it's not required). - Mar 2022

Laptops. They don't like to issue books. They didn't even issue books until February to my children. - Mar 2021

Uniforms are required. Field trips are optional. The price for field trips varies as they are typically within Ghana. Laptops are helpful for 11-12 grade. - Jul 2020

Laptops are required for middle school and up. Most of the other paying activities are by choice (athletic competitions, model UN, etc.) - Jan 2020

required laptops, but they can be inexpensive ones, and if necessary can be borrowed from library on daily basis. We did have to pay for cheerleading uniforms, and things like required PE outfits and swim suits. - Apr 2016
