A unique blend of Modern Learning, Montessori & Te Reo Māori me ​ōna​ tikanga.

Nau mai, Haere mai (welcome)

What Makes us Different?

We are developing a unique educational approach, which weaves together the principles of Modern Learning, Montessori and Te Reo Māori me ​ōna​ tikanga (the language and the way of Māori). This comes to life through the evolution of our local curriculum, which  connects to the natural resources on our doorstep, our history and the local community.

Our Learning Pathways

We have two mixed-age learning pathways, Pakiri and Montessori, under the school’s whakatuakī, Kotahi te Hikoi Whakamua (Forward Together). Both pathways offer small class sizes with excellent student to teacher ratios and highly individualised learning programmes. Our school runs from year one to eight.
