Rangiora High School has, since 1884, provided the families of this district with quality co-educational secondary education. The school's philosophy is underpinned by our Latin motto "Lux Cum Amore", translated in English as "Enlightenment with Friendship", or in Te Reo Maori as "Kua Puawai te Hoahoatanga".
As an educational institution we are committed to providing a high quality learning environment, which promotes the best possible educational, social, cultural and recreational development of the individual.
Rangiora High School recognises that it is the right of every student to enjoy an education based on traditional values that promote personal excellence and success in all areas. A Rangiora High School education embraces a wide range of experiences, interests and opportunities that enhance learning, acknowledge individual needs and differences, and challenge individuals to achieve personal standards of excellence.
Our aim as a school is to equip all students for today's rapidly changing society. Student need drives our diverse and challenging curriculum and underpins all teaching programmes and assessment methods. As a school we embrace the spirit of the Treaty of Waitangi and encourage bi-cultural and multicultural perspectives.
Rangiora High School is a successful school that ensures each student has an equitable chance to succeed and to meet the challenges of the 21st Century with confidence. We provide students with the skills, abilities and values needed to participate in and contribute to New Zealand society in an equal, positive and constructive manner.
Rangiora High School is proud of its past and focussed on its future. We look forward to sharing our school with you and your child.
