The St. Peters Senior Secondary School is a Roman Catholic boy’s senior high school that is located in East Ghana. The school was established back in 1957 by missionaries. The school is located at the Nkwatia Kwahu in the Kwahu ridge. It is a public senior high school with a very strong motto of 'dignitati hominum' which means the dignity of mankind. Since its establishment in 1957, this school has upheld its traditions to educate students in the spiritual ways, with currently over 1200 students. It is headed by the board of governors. It has form one to three and the main colors are yellow and green. The reason why the school is as it is because a lot of work was put to ensuring that the students have adequate facilities.
The land where the school stands was given by the people of Nkwatia after a delegation by the Divine Word Missionaries. After an agreement by the elders, Fr Clement Hotze became the first headmaster on January 1957. Classes began with only 36 students and the school slowly grew in terms of population. In 1965, the school recorded very great results with 100% pass. Since then the school has recorded high results from all its students.
