Principal's Message

"For many parents, an important decision has to be made in the selection of a school for their children. By any criterion, ours is a unique school with over 1,600 boys and girls coming from a wide range of backgrounds and with the provision of programmes for a wide range of students, from the most able students to those with specific learning difficulties. We welcome students with special and pronounced talents and also those of average ability, whose contribution is no less valuable and whose development is no less important.

Situated on the northern boundary of West Auckland, we have a rich blend of rural and urban students with a diversity of cultures. We are a truly comprehensive, multicultural co-educational school.

Each student is regarded as an individual and our primary objective is to develop his or her particular strengths and interests, while also engendering the intellectual and personal versatility required for life after school. Before they leave, students will have taken part in a wide range of activities and will have encountered our high expectations of their co-operation, enthusiasm, conduct, tolerance and consideration for others.

Our scholastic record is excellent and we are equally proud of our outstanding sports record, musicians, artists, actors and also our Maori, Pacific Island and Asian cultural groups. The majority of our students move on to tertiary education, mainly at Universities or Polytechnic Institutes.

This is the essence of Massey High School. We encourage and support our students to experience a range of activities. It is a wonderful thing to develop the strengths of all students and then foster a real will to use those strengths in the pursuit of excellence for the benefit of the school, themselves and their community."
