The Lisa Darwood Community International School is a private school situated in New Powmu Akosombo in the Asuogyaman District of Ghana.
The school was established as an orphanage but has since developed to provide education to the young people of the area who may not have previously received places in the main educational system.
The school is open to all young people and has become the first choice of many families due to the education and care the young people receive.
The school is dedicated to providing the best educational opportunities available for the young people who attend. The thirteen teachers have an in-depth knowledge of the students in their care and work to remove the barriers to learning that many of them face.
The school provides a positive environment for learning, both academic and social skills.
The ethos created is one of determination; all pupils from all backgrounds should have the opportunity to succeed. At The Lisa Darwood International Community School, students have access to the best quality teaching and learning and all the programs and initiatives provided by the Ghana Education Service.
At The Lisa Darwood International Community School, we pride ourselves on providing a caring and encouraging environment for our students.
We maintain strong links with the parents and guardians of our students who support us in the work we do to provide better opportunities for our young people.
The school was established by Mr Darko David Boateng and supported by a team of teachers from schools in Birmingham, UK, and the British Council.
Mrs Lisa Darwood led the team from Birmingham who have worked alongside Mr Boateng to advise and encourage the development of the school, supply teaching materials and promote the school’s mission.
