Asuom Islamic Basic School in the Kwaebibirim District of the Eastern region was established by the Ghana Muslim Mission and the Asuom Muslim Community in 1985.

The classrooms were initially constructed with palm fronts but in 1988, the Ghana Muslim Mission raised funds to put up a mud block made up of six units pavilion classroom for the primary school and later added the JHS.

After this, the classrooms have not been renovated which is causing it to deteriorate. The roof is in tatters hence academic work disrupted whenever it rains.
