Asanteman Senior High School was founded as a co-educational day school in 1954 by the Asante Youth Association (AYA) in response to the growing demands for more second cycle educational institutions in Ashanti. The school remained under the aegis of AYA until 1962 when it was absorbed into the public system by the government and from then on it grew from an initial one stream to three streams in the 1980s. Presently, the school runs 10 streams in each of the three forms with a student population of about 1,500, 65 masters and 29 non-teaching staff. The school has seen a continuous improvement in the Senior Secondary School Examination (SSSCE) results and has achieved good results in the schools quiz and debates. The school was runners up in 1997 and third in 1998 in the Milo Soccer Competitions and beat Osei Kyeretwie Secondary School (OKESS) for the first time in 2003 in the Ashanti region zonal athletics competition. Discipline is very high, in spite of the fact that majority of students were day students. The school could boast of modern and sophisticated computer centre with 30 computers.
