Founder

Raphael Adoayi Dowetin

(Togbui Kwaku Amenyodu I)

Founded 1962 

Datus Complex Schools Ltd was founded in 1962 and is a registered school by the Ministry of Education in Ghana, operating the Ghana National Curriculum and the International Curriculum of the IB and British Cambridge Curriculum.  Datus International School is a wing of the Datus Complex Schools focusing on the IB and IGCSE curriculum.  We opened our doors to only 12 pupils on June 12, 1962.

The school was founded to serve the needs of the children in the community of Accra and of those families who are attracted by the unique Bi-lingual character of the school and who share its philosophy and objectives.

We have contributed immensely to the education of both local and international.  We have recently successfully embarked on the journey to become a recognized Cambridge ICGSE and an IB World School beginning with the Primary years Program of the IB.

With the National Curriculum (BECE/WASSCE), IB PYP (Candidate) and IGCSE, our students are following internationally recognized courses with external validation.

Our school is also recognized with the College Board for SAT/ACT/PSAT and also a member of the IB Organization and fully accredited by the Ghana Education services, an IB World School – www.ibo.org, Cambridge -British Council, ASCICS, NASIA, AAIE.

The language of instruction is English and we also offer French, Mandarin (for lower classes with the IB PYP) and Arabic Studies.  The school is proud of its inclusive ethos.  We see diversity as a strength and Datus is definitely a school of choice that has the most diverse community of learners in Ghana.
