he Koforidua Secondary Technical School was established in
Most of the present infrastructure including the dormitories, thge main classroom block, the seventeen bungalows, the
Dining/Assembly hall, the Administration block, the garages and many others served as a Gliding school before September 1967
in the Nkrumah regime.
With the coup d'etat of 1966 and the overthrow of the Nkrumah regime, the military government of the National Liberation
Council (NLC) decided to discontinue with the Gliding school and the place converted to a Secondary a school.
At the time, there was a strong desire to produce more science students with some knowledge in technical subjects at the secondary school level
to feed the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology and also the Kwame Nkrumah University College of Science education, now University
of Cape Coast. It was felt that special schools should be established in that regard. Ghana Secondary Technical School, Takoradi was the
first of such schools, followed by Suhum Secondary Technical School. Koforidua Secondary Technical School became the third to be established with the
name Ghana Secondary Technical School, Koforidua. That name was changed to the present Koforidua
Secondary Technical School in 1969with the first change in the headship of the school.
In 1967 Mr. Mac Bruce, a Principal Education Officer at the Eastern Regional Educatio Office was appointed Headmaster to start the school in
September. After laying a firm foundation for the school, he was transferred to Suhum Secondary Technical School. Mr. S.R.R. Croffie assumed
duty in September 1969 to continue from where Mr. Mac Bruce had left off.
Mr. Croffie built the school to the stature it now has. Because of impressive academic performance of the school, it was quickly
granted sixth form status in September 1974. The relatively young school became noted for academic excellence.
The school has had eight Headmasters since it's inception with four others as acting Headmasters at different times.
The school had a lot of infrastructural development during the headship of Messres S.R.R. Croffie and J.Y. Bedjabeng. In view of it's
excellence and hard work, the school attained the accolade "Eastern Varsity" with the slogan "Educate for Service".
In January 2001, Mr. Seth Adu, a former head of Kwahu Ridge was transferred to Koforidua Secondary Technical School to assume office.
The school can now boast of a population of thousand five hundred students with the vision of having more than two thousand
students in a few years to come due to the developmental expansion plans in the pipeline.
THE VALUE OF A SMILE
A smile in nature is the best remedy for trouble
It is heat to the cold
It is daylight to the lost
A smile is medicine to the sick
It is good news to the discouraged
It is the dream of the sad
It is surest to the searcher
A smile is a sign of peace
Therefore look at it in your heart
Put it in your face
And practice it on your lips
