Palmerston North Boys' High School seeks to provide young men with an intellectual and moral education which will enable them to make a valuable contribution to society. The school aims to develop all students in terms of providing the widest opportunities in academic, sporting and cultural activities in an environment which fosters the awareness of growth in personal and social relationships. The school will achieve this by:

  • Offering young men a comprehensive range of educational, vocational and recreational experiences.
  • Emphasising the successful development of the skills of communication, literacy and numeracy.
  • Preparing young men for examinations and NCEA assessments and future career opportunities.
  • Presenting young men with firm and reasonable guidelines to responsible behaviour.
  • Actively encouraging and developing the qualities of reliability, honesty, concern for others and leadership.
  • Offering young men a wide range of sporting and cultural opportunities (recreational and competitive) and encouraging them to assume life-long responsibility for their own fitness and health.

International Student Testimonial:

"The school I go to is good. It’s good to study, play sport and do outside activities. They make me try hard in my studies  and class sizes are very small. I feel the teaching is comfortable and not stressful. I fell good to study and the teachers help me a lot. Even some of my classmates help me when I don’t understand. I am comfortable to ask questions if I don’t understand and I like having more time to spend on problems. I always get to play sport and people are very friendly. I get much more time to do things for me, like meeting my friends, playing sport doing study and computer games. My homestay family they are so friendly and they take me lots of laces. I feel like I am part of their family."
