The demand for secondary education has increased as a result of high completion rates at the Junior high School level. In response to this, several new public schools have been provided, whilst facilities in existing schools have been upgraded.
Trends in school placement from the Computer Schools Selection and Placement System (CSSPS)
indicate some disparity in the selection of schools. Students overwhelmingly choose the popular but few traditionally high-performing schools thereby leading to oversubscription of these schools.
Many schools that have significantly improved in recent years remain unknown and undersubscribed.
We believe that this anomaly is partly due to the lack of information available to students and parents.

Presbyterian Boys, Legon is a prestigious all-male academic institution established by the Presbyterian Church of Ghana on 1st February 1938 at Odumase Krobo in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The school started with 16 students who were selected through a special entrance examination and 4 teachers. The school moved to its current location, Legon in 1968.
The first Headmaster of the school Rev. E. A. W. Engmann, a 35-year-old man, offered himself to make the dream of the Presbyterian Church to establish
a Secondary School started by Rev. N.T. Clerk, the Church’s first Synod Clerk, a reality. An alumnus of the school is referred to as Ɔdadeɛ (the baobab tree).
The baobab tree is a Ghanaian symbol of knowledge, resourcefulness, and strength.
PRESEC, Legon is dedicated to being the number one institution for young males in the country and Africa, an institution of excellence where students achieve
their potential in scholarship, character development, civic responsibility, creative expression, and Career/Post-Secondary Preparation.
It provides a safe and secure environment, quality instruction, personal guidance, and challenging learning opportunities for all students. The school exists to equip students for a fuller life to which Christian education based on the Presbyterian traditions opens the door.
