In July, TMP Academy wrapped up our first every full academic year! TMP Academy opened its doors in January 2018 and since that day, we have seen some pretty incredible growth and development happening within the school. One of the main issues we experienced upon opening was getting kids to come to classes daily. Our staff worked diligently with the students and families to help increase attendance and we are now at a place where we are seeing wonderful attendance and students progress is growing accordingly.
At the close of the 2018-2019 academic year, our students take an annual exam for their grade administered by the Ghana Education Service. This standardized test is used to measure academic proficiency in Ghana and serves as our litmus test within the school to gauge how our students are doing overall. The test performance also determines grade level advancement for the next term. We are so thrilled to report that EVERY student met or exceeded the benchmark set for by the Ghana Education Service! Needless to say, the TMP Academy staff was so excited! We had five students promote two grade levels, with 25 more students moving up one grade level.
Recently we have begun enrolling new students to TMP Academy due to the academic growth of our current student population. This is yet another success in the school’s development and we look forward to welcoming new students to the Academy.
