The national Officer Cadet Training School and Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) are also located here. It is believed that Teshie is 300 years in 2011. The Teshie people are well known for their straight forward attitude and are hospitable to all races and backgrounds.
The language of Teshie is Ga. The city is rich in diversity as a result of the country's current democracy and development program. Every August the city celebrates the Homowo festival. The people of Teshie are proud people and pride themselves that they are always stronger than their next neighbours; Nungua (on the East) and better than La (on the West). Teshie people would do everything possible to hold to these past dominances. Sometimes to the town's on detriment.
