Our mission is to deliver a great all-round education that enables students to reach for their heights.
Student learning, progress and achievement are key priorities and our success is reflected in the outstanding results achieved by our students every year.
Wakatipu High School NCEA results (2019) are well above the national average:
- 80% of our Year 13 students achieved University Entrance against a national average of 49%
- At NCEA level 2 our performance is 92% achieved against the national average of 78%
As well as our academic foundation, Wakatipu High School offers students a wealth of extra and co-curricular opportunities in sport, arts, music, culture, community and leadership. From our Kapa Haka group to the Ski Academy, there’s an incredible range of activities and groups on offer from which students can learn, grow and develop into confident young people.
Students’ pastoral support is through our Whanau (House) structure and Deans, as well as our Kaiārahi and Guidance Counsellors. This structure also provides the basis for our keenly-contested inter-House competitions.
