Ebenezer Senior High School (fondly known as Padua) was founded in 1941 by the late Mr. Robert Teiko Aryee, who was born on the 23rd April 1902 in Accra to Mr Charles Ayi Aryee, a fisherman and Naomi Quarcoo, a trader. In those days there was no reason to encourage schooling as the people had no role models or money to send their children to school. Mr. Robert Teiko Aryee decided to change all this by empowering his local community. He started a private school, night school, in a small rented room in the Timber Market area, on Charles Lane Street, Ayalolo, Accra, with just four (4) students. By 1947, four (4) out of six (6) students had written the Cambridge School Certificate Examination as private students. Mr. Aryee had help from the following pioneering teachers: Mr. E.K.A. Otoo, Joseph Tetteh Taye, Miss Joyce Quartey, Enoch Amui Amoo, Emmanuel Oblitey Amoo, E.M. Oku, Emmanuel Nii Addy and Miss Margaret Ahulu.Read More
