Tauhara College is a Y9-13 co-educational public high school serving our community here in Taupo. Learning is central to all we do and we work hard to make our school a learning community dedicated to developing and supporting life-long, independent Ako.
Students are prepared for the ever evolving, global environment in which they will work and live. Our learning environment fosters a sense of belonging and identity and strives for individual and collective excellence.
Excited about Learning
Tauhara College will provide an education which challenges, encourages and supports students to reach their full potential through all aspects of school life. This will be achieved in a caring environment where the worth, rights, responsibilities and dignity of the individual are fundamental.
Tauharatanga describes a way of ‘being’ as a school community and a sense of place where there is always a strong emphasis on care, on strong learning-focused relationships, on making the most of all opportunities, on high participation and on high achievement.
Our Waka prow symbolizes how students enter Tauhara College to enthusiastically participate in the full range of learning opportunities and during their time at our school they gain a strong sense of themselves as successful learners with a vibrant future ahead of them.
