Taita College offers a high quality secondary education through the provision of effective teaching and an innovative curriculum. A strong emphasis is placed on literacy and numeracy skills to support each student to achieve academic success. We work hard to foster enquiry, high expectations, and a curiosity around learning.

Taita College continues to offer a wide range of co-curricular activities and levels of participation by students and staff are high. Well-established mentoring, leadership and House systems engender whanaungatanga, manaakitanga, te kotahitanga, school spirit and a friendly relaxed atmosphere for learning.

In short, Taita College is a school of excellence where students are encouraged and supported to set high expectations for themselves. These high expectations relate to academic, social and interpersonal outcomes, and participation and contribution in a learning community.
