Albany Senior High School is the first state funded senior high school built in New Zealand. It caters for students from Years 11-13. The teaching philosophy is based on the New Zealand curriculum document. The school was officially opened in February 2009 by the Prime Minister, John Key. The school has many unique features; open- plan learning commons, 100 minute lessons, open source software, Tutorials and Impact Projects, to list a few. Albany Senior High School provides an A+ Academic Plus education where the A stands for excellent academic results and the plus is the value that is added to our students by allowing them to take their learning to the world through Impact Projects.
Albany Senior High School is a signatory to the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students. We have a small number of places available each year and we offer students who have studied at Albany Junior High School first option for these places.
