  • High School New Zealand Testimonials

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.

Henning S.Testimonial from High School Student

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.

FAQ’s about a high school abroad in New Zealand

There is no difference between these names. They all refer to the same type of institution – a secondary school offering classes from Year 9 to Year 13. Students graduate from Year 13 and proceed to study at tertiary institutions.

Most schools will have a uniform code which is likely to include the wearing of a standard school uniform up until Year 13. An increasingly large number of schools have a different school uniform or allow acceptable casual clothing in senior school. A small number of schools have a no uniform policy and all students at these schools can wear casual clothing although there are still dress regulations.

It is not necessary to have a good level of English to enter secondary school however some schools do require this. In this situation a student can attend an English School for a few months prior to entering the secondary school or alternatively AA Education Network will place the student in a school which has additional English learning resources so that students can improve their English within the school before attending mainstream classes.

AA Education Network only acts for secondary schools which have high standards of academic tuition and care and administration of international students. Our experience has confirmed that students achieve best while they are at secondary school if they are in a properly administered homestay or boarding situation. When a student has completed secondary school they are able to select whatever accommodation option meets with their personal wishes.

In this situation you have several options. Firstly you could repeat Year 13 at secondary school and hopefully pass the course. Alternatively you could enrol in a Foundation Studies course at one if the Universities in New Zealand to prepare students for entry to University. You still need to have an acceptable English level and pass the course before you will be admitted to University. Foundation Studies Courses are for approximately one year. Another option is to enrol in a Certificate or Diploma programme at a Polytechnic and pass this Certificate or Diploma then get entry into the Degree programme which follows.

It should be no problem for parents to apply for a visitor visa and to visit their children in New Zealand providing they meet normal visitor visa policy requirements.

The first step is to select a high school and then make an enrolment application for that high school. The easiest and quickest way is to us and AA Education Network will locate a suitable school and subjects to meet your requirements.
