Our international students add a cultural diversity to Havelock North High School. Our students mix with fee paying students from many countries: Japan, Germany, Korea, China, Brazil, Thailand and more. We welcome these students into our school and they soon embrace the "kiwi" lifestyle. Students enjoy education opportunities while attending Havelock North High School and living in beautiful Hawke's Bay.
Our experienced staff offers a wide range of subjects to study. Our school sets the highest academic standards and students consistently achieve outstanding results in national examinations.
Students' individual learning and English language needs will be met. Our international students find they excel at English on return to school in their own country.
