Tauriko School is proud of its 100 year history as a school of excellence in the Tauriko/Lakes communities. The school provides a unique learning experience in New Zealand – celebrating the best of urban living and rural traditions. While valuing our past, our students also enjoy exciting and engaging learning programmes which support their learning and development now, and prepare them for the future.

The school’s essence statement is Learning . Leading . Succeeding. The school offers a world class Future Focussed learning curriculum that empowers our students to learn and lead for success.

The school’s values of Respect, Integrity, Excellence and Innovation support this learning and all school decision making.

Tauriko School believes that student learning and achievement happen most successfully within a strong supportive partnership between home and school. "It takes a village to raise a child" and the school and its community are wrapped around each student to support their success.

Strong models for learning are modelled by school staff and parents/whanau. The school espouses a strong belief in its focus as a community of learners - student, staff and parents/whanau. We all learn from each other, all of us are teachers and all of us are learners.
