Tauraroa Area School is a Year 1 - 13 school, with an outstanding academic record, set in a quiet, beautiful, rural locality just 22km from Whangarei city, Northland. A recently modernised and extended campus provides all students with state of the art facilities supporting a wide range of learning opportunities .International Students have thrived in the warm, family atmosphere the school provides. Taking part in school camps, field trips, sports days and cultural events gives students a taste of the 'real New Zealand'. Being among a smaller number of International Students gives our visitors a chance to rapidly improve their spoken & written English skills. Students mix freely with the friendly local students and life long friends are made.
Students can participate in a wide range of extra curriculum activities. These include: Musical Performances, Kapa Haka, Equestrian, Netball, Hockey, Volleyball, Futsal, Rugby, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Clay Shooting, Teen Ag Club (Agricultural club), and Drama.
