Education is seen as a lifelong process, which empowers people for socio-economic development. It is in recognition of this fact that the Municipal Assembly places emphasis on education as one of the critical key sectors in its human resource development. Realizing the inadequate supply of educational facilities throughout the Municipality, the Municipal Assembly has directly and indirectly facilitated the construction of several schools, particularly at the basic level, and the provision of other facilities, with a view to providing quality education to the people, and as it were, bring education to the doorstep of the ordinary citizen of the Municipality.
The municipality has 277 different educational facilities; 137 of which are private and 140 public. Pre-schools number up to 93, Primary schools are 101, Junior High schools are 76, Senior High schools (2), one Tertiary school and one Special school called the Garden city special school. However, there are no Vocational/Technical Institutions.
The municipality has two (2) community ICT Centres located at Asawase and Adukrom. That notwithstanding, almost all the primary to tertiary educational institutions have ICT laboratories.
Though the municipality provides basic and secondary services, Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) which is a neighboring metropolitan area, provides tertiary educational services to the Municipality which enables most of the residents in the Municipality to attain tertiary education. Institutions such as Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi Poly Technic and Komfo Anokye Nursing Training school are some of the institutions the municipality is benefiting from the metropolis.
The metropolis also enjoys the secondary services the Municipality provides. People from the Metropolis also access senior High school education (Kumasi Academy i.e KUMACA) in the Municipality.
