The Ministry of Education has announced that it has added 7 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) schools to the Computerized School Selection Placement (CSSPS) for the 2023 academic year.
The selected STEM schools are the Awaso STEM School in the Western Region; Abomosu STEM School in the Eastern Region; Bosomtwe Girls STEM School and Bosomtwe STEM School, both in the Ashanti Region; while the Koase Sec/Tech (already existing school) is located in the Ahafo Region, the Accra High School (Engineering only) in the Greater Accra Region and the Kpesemkpe STEM School, newly constructed in the North East Region.
The Ministry said the development comes as a result of recent calls and intense advocacy by stakeholders in academia and civil society, urging the government to put in place adequate structures that would enhance the teaching and learning of STEM courses, among teachers and junior and senior high school students in the country.
