Legon, a suburb of the Ghanaian capital city Accra, is situated about twelve kilometres north-east of the city center. Legon is home to the main campus of the University of Ghana. The word Legon is derived from the indigenous Ga language of the people of Accra; it means "Hill of Knowledge". Ghanaians also call the University Legon. Legon is also home to Presbyterian Boy's Secondary School (PRESEC). Legon is adjacent to one of the most prestigious suburbs of Accra - East Legon and only 10 minutes drive from the Kotoka International Airport.
The University has its own private elementary and middle school. Students who attend this school are primarily kin to the lecturers and workers of the University campus. Many of them go on to attend the University themselves.
