The ingenuity of Dr. Kwaku Oteng brought about the establishment of Angel Educational Complex on 7th September, 2004 as a private educational institution. It all began with pupil population of eighty-five (85) made up of thirty-six (36) boys and forty-nine (49) girls. Eight (8) teachers including Mr. S.E. Cobbold as the headmaster and one (1) cook were the pioneer staff who started the school.
With a massive and vigorous capital investment, the complex began on a sound footing with modern state-of-the-art classroom and boarding facilities and the like.
The complex is being managed by an effective Board of Governors chaired by Dr. S.K. Amponsah, Senior Lecturer, Mathematics Department, KNUST.
Once established, the complex began to grow with a steady increase of pupil population which saw the massive recruitment of professionals to strengthen the increasing demand for the complex. It was in this vain that on the 5th of January, 2005 the Metropolitan Education Office of the Ghana Education Service gave Angel Educational Complex the approval to start a Junior High School.
With this approval, ten (10) teachers were employed, and 256 students made up of 108 boys and 148 girls were enrolled to form the nucleus of the new JHS.
The motto of the complex “Nation Building Through Excellent Training” was cleverly coined to reflect and consolidate the intentions of the founder. As our pride, we support this motto by a visible emblem of two symbolic angels reading a book.
In pursuit of this motto, and because of the excellent progress Angel Educational Complex made during the few years of its existence in both infrastructural development and sound academic policy, the complex applied for extension and establishment of a Senior High School (SHS). The Ghana Education Service did the due diligence by instructing its inspectorate Division to assess the complex for its possible upgrading. This was done twice in 2005.
As a result of these assessments, and on the recommendations of the Ghana Education Service, the complex had the birth of a Senior High School on 5th October, 2005 with a Registration number AR/KMA/SC/P66, and categorized as GRADE ‘A’. The Senior High School began with 21 pioneer students and 10 teachers.
Twenty-one (21) candidates sat for the May/ June 2007 West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE), and had good grades. Eighteen (18) of them qualified for entry into the various universities in the country.
Since the inception of the complex, there has been a progressive growth of pupil and student population but this is well controlled to an appreciable level to maintain quality and good standards.
The complex undergoes a continuous infrastructural and human resource capacity development with an appreciable attrition rate to maintain excellence and quality delivery. These are the dynamics that make the complex distinct, outstanding and progressive.
The complex is now a fully-fledged educational centre which can boast as one of the best state-of-the-art, ambient educational environment in Ghana which reflects positively in the outcome of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) at the Junior High School (JHS) and Senior High School (SHS) levels respectively.
