Kia ora koutou, 

Thank you for considering Mountainview High School as your school of choice. I hope our website provides you with an understanding of our innovative and creative culture. Our philosophy is to provide each child with an education that empowers them to thrive in all aspects of their life. 

The staff at Mountainview High School work tirelessly to provide unique learning experiences for our students. Our courses are highly engaging and responsive to the needs of our learners. We understand the world is changing, so we must adapt our teaching and learning programmes to ensure our students develop the skills needed for success in their future.

A student’s high school experience, however, goes far beyond the sole focus of academic achievement. At Mountainview we ensure that every student’s hauora is supported so they are successful in their secondary education. We value our students’ well being and academic progress equally and look to support both in everything we do.

Our ākonga thrive in our whānau environment. Although friendly rivalry exists between the whānau, we pull together and look out for each other when needed. Our students’ unconditional support for each other is one of the reasons our kura is so special. The whānau system gives every learner a sense of belonging and embodies the māori concept of tūrangawaewae.      

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our school, and I hope you take the time to visit us and see our amazing students for yourself.
