General Arts Department

The General Arts department is the most popular department in Apam High School, with the highest student enrollment of about 1500 students, which represents about one-third of the school population. The department has a teaching population of twenty-eight full-time employees and seven service personnel and student teachers. The elective subjects of the departments are Economics, Geography, Government, History, Christian Religious Studies, and Social Studies. The department requires its students to read frequently in order to increase their vocabulary and linguistic proficiency so they may speak clearly and confidently. There are several employment options for students taking the general arts instruction course. These include: copywriting; management; social work; law, media, and communication; public relations software consultant; administrative executive assistant; and others.

Through peer teaching and learning, the clubs educate students how to generate their own original ideas. Our students’ performances at events where the clubs compete demonstrate their creativity. The History Club Association, the Geography Student Association, NCCE, and the Drama and Cultural Troop are among the clubs that have received recognition from this department.
