Mfantsiman Girls also known as Syte is Ghana’s largest female public senior high school.

Established in 1960 by Ghana’s first President Dr Kwame Nkrumah it was formerly known as Saltpond Girls’ Secondary School. The name was changed to Mfantsiman when the District of Saltpond became the District of Mfantsiman District.

According to school history, 70 girls were selected from the Common Entrance Examination to begin the first batch of students with Mrs Beatrice CHINERY as headmistress.

The school’s motto is “Obra Nye Woarbo” which means “Life is what you Make it” with mauve and white as official colours. The school crest features an eagle, straw basket, claw of an eagle and woman seated on on elephant.

The anthem of the school was a Latin song which is still used by KNUST as its anthem. Girls are housed in 6 student’s building namely Butler, Crofie, Chinery, Engman Scotton and Yeboah Houses respectively.

Mfantsiman Girls have a healthy alliance with the boys of Adisadel College known as SANTAMOGA.
