Bay of Plenty
Te Puke Intermediate is a specialist middle school which strives to foster and encourage our students through their middle schooling, recognising the aspirations and beliefs of our bicultural heritage and multi-cultural community.
Our Town: Te Puke is a safe, warm and friendly rural town within the beautiful, sunny Bay of Plenty region. Just 20 minutes from Tauranga, 10 minutes from stunning white sand beaches, numerous golf courses, and shopping centres.
Our School: Te Puke Intermediate is a medium sized school with approximately 350 students. Big enough to be able to offer a vast range of opportunities and experiences but small enough that staff and students all know one another.
Our Curriculum: We offer a specialist Year 7 & 8 curriculum, full of challenges and opportunities to stimulate students. Everything that we do is designed to meet the needs of emerging adolescents as they discover where their strengths and interests lie.
We have strong educational pathways to secondary and tertiary education.
Our school philosophy is of the belief that all students have special talents in some areas and that all students should have access to extension and the particular strengths that individual teachers bring to the school. Gifted and Talented pupils are identified and programmes planned to meet their needs. Parents are invited to assist in the identification process.
