The key philosophies behind Wakatipu High School’s timetable are...

student choice, a broad selection and literacy and numeracy.

This supports greater engagement and achievement, whilst giving students a strong foundation in key subjects. Junior students can experience the full breadth of the New Zealand curriculum and its eight Learning Areas, while senior students have the opportunity to specialise.

The timetable runs over two weeks, from Day 1 to Day 10. Ako (formerly tutor groups) meet for one hour on Mondays and Fridays and fifteen minutes on Wednesdays, which allows students' time to work independently.

Wakatipu High School offers the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA). This is the official secondary school qualification of New Zealand and is administered by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.
