Among the competing towns were Manso Nkwanta, Abore, Atwere, Assamang, Yawkrom and Agroyesum. Manso Atwere had pipe born water, electricity generating plant and a community centre, all of which the competing communities did not have. Having the upper hand in these facilities, Atwere started the school in its community centre from 1972, and towards the end of 1973 the Government absorbed it. The enrolment was twenty; fourteen males and six females.
