Your junior high school is where you begin your teenage years; it’s where you really begin to understand your personality, if even only by a little.
And just as Ghanaians like to boast of their senior high schools and universities, where you attended JHS plays a significant role in your growing years; and it gets even more interesting if you know which schools did that for your favorite celebrities.
These are the ‘top’ JHS that produced some of Ghana’s biggest stars:
1. St. Martin De Porres school. This private co-educational school in Dansoman is one of the oldest basic schools in Ghana. Some of the celebrities that attended this school are Yvonne Nelson and Kaakie.
