Learning at Waitara High School​

At Waitara High School, we are proud to work with the students and whānau of Waitara to develop active and inspired learners who feel a strong sense of belonging and connectedness to their community and who believe in themselves.

We work hard to accelerate student development and have a proud history of doing so.

We are a future-focused school with passionate and talented teachers who consistently go above and beyond to provide the very best education.

Students are offered a wealth of opportunities from mooting to culinary arts competitions to playing rugby. We teach students how to lead with heart and how to be a invaluable team member.

We’re proud to be fees free and to provide each of our Year 9 students with an individual Chrome book to use to support their studies so that they are prepared for the digital age.

We are a small school with a big heart, where everyone matters, is seen and is nurtured to excel.
