The vision to establish Merton International Primary and High School was a singular one. It was to produce a top breed of citizens capable of responding to the complexity of our millennium through the impact they would make in their local communities. The mission, matchless in its import, was careful to make the school a theocentric one while ensuring the human effort that crafted a robust curriculum to produce an end game of skills and knowledge, sensitivity towards humanity and making sincere, the much-touted stewardship to the environment. Established in 1998, Merton International Primary and High School profile a student body who are buoyant in their physical activity keen in their cognitive reception practical in their application and pliant to the values that underscore the finest qualities of the World Citizen.
To nurture individuals to become world-class citizens who have a passion to explore and understand the world around them through transformative education.
At Merton, we believe that every child has a talent. We train them to exploit it in order to maximize their potential, to believe and be confident in themselves; and turn out to be valuable citizens in their society. As a first step they share these core values:
Duty to others, obligation to ourselves
Upholding high ethical standards
Principled in thought and in action
Measuring up to the highest standards
Devotion to God, sharing our vision and supporting each other
We are a day school with a closed circuit of stakeholders. The pupils and students are predominantly Ghanaian whose outlook have been conditioned by their parents and guardians in the quest to mold them into responsible individuals. Some of them whose other parent is non-Ghanaian or with both parents hailing from Ghana but from different ethnic groups enjoy the benefits of multiculturalism.
This feature lends itself to them in ways that are as simple as sharing with others, setting trends in the arena of decent western fashion and at the same time, conveying the gems of Ghanaian culture during events like the successful annual Cultural Interaction Day which showcases the culture of a chosen nationality. From the West African sub region, we also have our Nigerian and Gambian pupils and students and from further south, Zambian students. These international components continue to confirm the commonalities that undergird us on the African continent and the ease with which they meld into the Mertonite vision to form an enduring school culture is remarkable.
