Tamatea High School New Zealand

Quality Education in a Modern, Innovative, Co-Educational Environment
 

Tamatea High School is a multicultural school having had 17years experience in providing education and care to international students. It welcomes and values contact with other cultures.
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Tamatea High School. This school offers students a wide range of opportunities and looks to offer the very best in education.

Tamatea High School focuses on individual pathways and is responsive to each studentís needs.

The small size of the school means that students retain their own personal identity and are not lost in the crowd. The co-educational environment reflects that of the wider community and, as such, for many students is a more natural learning environment.

Students attending this school benefit in a number of ways. The students are well known to each other and to the staff. This safe environment is a lot less daunting, certainly for younger students entering secondary school education for the first time. To assist with this transition to secondary school, Year 9 classes will be of 25 students or less.

The Junior Diploma which operates at Year 9 and Year 10 encourages students towards success and rewards them for their successes. It allows students to gain credits for their achievements and work towards an end of year Diploma. This reflects the assessment methods of NCEA in the senior school.

The Junior Diploma, which operates at Year 9 and Year 10, encourages and challenges by offering Merit and Excellence awards for those students excelling in any particular unit of work. There is also the opportunity to gain a Merit or Excellence diploma for above average or outstanding performance across the curriculum.

The school is entering an exciting phase of modernisation and development of facilities and buildings. The library is being transformed into a modern information centre that will be the hub of the school. There will be modernisation of classrooms and upgrades of toilet blocks and offices. Upgrading of the auditorium and science laboratories are also planned. These improvements will provide our students with facilities of the highest standard.

It is the aim of Tamatea High School to be a community school: to develop relationships with our community, to be welcoming and inclusive of parents and to build our relationship with local organisations and businesses.

At Tamatea High School our young people are given a great many opportunities to develop and pursue their interests and passions. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss what Tamatea High School can offer your son/daughter.
