New Zealand High Schools rank among the top nations in terms of education in the western hemisphere. New Zealand High Schools have welcomed international students from Brazil, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam which have immeasurably enriched the cultural life of the NZ High School community.
Why a High School in New Zealand
New Zealand High Schools offer many advantages for International Students
I came here in July to begin my schooling at Tauranga Boy’s College.
My high school year here in New Zealand is generally pleasing. I have been here for 6 months and am looking forward to the second half with two more terms in front of me and lots of good weather.
The high schools International Department helped me a lot with getting used to their school.
It is a pure boys’ school with the exception of a few teachers. The school has about 1600 pupils aged 10-18 years. Anyone who wants to do sport ambitiously should consider this school.
Since yesterday Marco time in New Zealand has come to an end.
Marco loved everything about New Zealand so much; the people, his school and especially his host family that he did not really want to come back home to Germany anymore.
He often wrote to us in his emails that he would have liked to extend his stay in NZ. He really suffered from saying goodbye and I felt sorry he had to go back to school in Germany, otherwise, he would have had to repeat the same class due to the different school grading systems.
In retrospect, I have to say it was the best decision that he went to New Zealand for his high school studies and that he attended the Cashmere High School (by the way his credentials were very good). The host family really took care of Marco in a very loving way and I think he did not feel homesick at all. He had the incredible luck to come to this family.
Thank you again for all your efforts! As already written, I would like to share my experiences and especially my recommendations with other interested parents who are considering to organise their child’s high school studies in New Zealand through GotoNewZealand/AA Education Network.
