Christian Methodist Senior High School is a co-educational, municipal secondary school located in Weija, Ga South Municipal District, Ghana.

History[edit]

The school was established in September 1960 by the United States-based Christian Methodist Episcopal Church. The school was initially located, in rented premises, at Asylum Down, near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle.[1] Originally a private institution, it was absorbed into the public educational system in September 1965. The school moved to the present site, in Weija, in September 2009.

In 2015 110 acres of land belonging to the school were the subject of an invasion by squatters.[2] By 2018 only five acres of the 110 acres set aside for the school were available for its use.[3]
