Welcome to Tauraroa Area School

Why do International Students choose Tauraroa Area School?

Tauraroa Area School is set amongst beautiful, natural green countryside, bordered by the Tangihua Ranges, a short drive from Whangarei on the east coast of Northland. We are part of a thriving farming community and a popular area for a relaxed lifestyle. Students choose our school for its warm, friendly, and welcoming culture. We have a small number of international students so you will have an authentic ‘kiwi’ experience, mixing with local students in all of your classes.

Code of Practice

Tauraroa Area School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students published by the Ministry of Education. Copies of the Code are available on request from this institution or from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority website.

You may also be able to find a copy of the Code of Practice in your language at this link. Details of our refund policy, insurance and immigration requirements and conditions of acceptance are to be found on our International Application Form.
