Welcome to Mountainview High School, Haere mai, Haere mai.

Our school is situated in Timaru, the thriving main centre of South Canterbury in the South Island of New Zealand. Timaru is a small city that has a beautiful coastline. We are close to other centres as well as the lakes and mountain districts of this magnificent country.

Mountainview High is an exciting and successful Year 9 – 13 co-educational secondary school that has been on its current site since 1984. Our campus is beautiful, with views over the hills and distant mountains and the school layout provides a stunning working and learning environment for all students and staff. It is the envy of many schools in New Zealand.

At Mountainview, our students come first! We pride ourselves on the extensive range of subjects and our main goal is to ensure that every student gains the academic qualifications and social skills that will enable them to be successful as members of their communities well after they have completed their studies with us.

Our co-educational environment is an ideal platform for International Students where acceptance, tolerance and harmony is an everyday part of life. International students are able to participate in all the activities of the school. We pride ourselves on the way in which they become quickly integrated with sporting, cultural and other extra-qcurricular activities. We are proud of the way in which our students make Mountainview High School a very special place to be a part of.
