Parnell District School welcomes students from Year 1 to 8 (age 5 - 13). We host our own intermediate department for Year 7 and 8 students. Our school is well respected and also one of the oldest in Auckland (over 150 years old). Our students perform very well in national testing in core subjects but also have vibrant experiences in the arts and exciting sporting opportunities. At Parnell we teach Mandarin from Year 4 and we were one of the first Confucius schools in New Zealand.
Parnell District School has over 30 rooms including a technology room, performing arts room, a library and a hall. We have easy access to yachting facilities, Auckland museum, the city centre and the nearby beaches. We are also very close to Auckland University. Our children are involved in environmentally friendly projects and e learning activities. Our senior classes (Year 5-8) have just commenced a BYOD programme.
