Summary – First Half 2015 versus First Half 2014

Our program in Ghana is showing impressive momentum during 2015.  We have increased the number of students in our program and their academic achievement is outstanding.  Over half of our students had an “A’ average during the second term of the 2014 – 2015 school year.  For the same term last year, none of them had an “A” average. 

We attribute their progress to several factors:

  • We set high expectations for our teachers and students, hiring additional and highly capable teachers and accepting new students who are academically driven;
  • All students are attending top-performing private schools with smaller class sizes and more rigorous curriculum;
  • Our after school tutoring is segmented by grade, with separate sessions for lower primary, upper primary and junior high students;
  • The tutoring focuses on subjects our students find challenging, particularly French and Math.

Highlights

  • Enrollment increased from 22 to 31 students, driven by recruitment of new students for 2014 – 2015 school year.
  • During the second term of the 2014 – 2015 school year, 17 students had A averages and 11 students had B averages, compared to no students with A averages and 10 students with B averages during the second term last year. 
  • Tutoring hours increased from 761 to 795.  Similarly, the number of hours of musical instruction increased from 217 to 282.
  • Outside of the classroom, students enjoyed 5 field trips and 7 workshops during the First Half 2015.   

High School Bound!

Seth is the first high school student in the BBSCF program. He is attending Ada Senior High School in Ada. Throughout his school years he was consistently an "A" student and served as a class prefect. What a great role model he is for our younger students!
