Manurewa High School

Nau mai, haere mai ki to tatou kura 


Manurewa High School is one of the largest multicultural schools in New Zealand, with 2000 students representing more than 50 nationalities, a true reflection of Auckland. This has great benefits in preparing our students for the future – a world in which multicultural connections and cultural understanding will create many opportunities for success. 

At Manurewa High School we have a vision: ‘Piki atu ki te rangi, Aim High, Strive for Excellence’, and a mission to grow a community of learners to ‘Be the Manurewa Way’ by living our values of Respect, Excellence, Whanaungatanga and Akoranga.  We are strongly led by these values; they guide how we work together as a school community, and have a powerful impact on achievement. While students are fully prepared for the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA), Manurewa High School is committed to providing a balanced education by encouraging academic, cultural and sporting excellence.  International students find their experience of the school to be academically challenging, culturally rewarding and socially enriching. 

Student motivation is strong, through the hard work and dedication of a caring and professional staff. We work closely international students to help them to achieve their best, and step positively into their futures as lifelong learners and confident, connected and responsible citizens. 

Manurewa High School welcomes applications from international students who wish to live with a parent or designated caregiver (family or close family friend)
