Our School

Massey High School is a school with heart.  

We are a large co-educational school in West Auckland, 30 minutes from the International Airport, 20 minutes from the Auckland city centre, and close to New Zealand’s famous west coast surf beaches, native forests and rivers. This means there is a huge range of cultural, sporting, and recreational activities available to our students. 

Our school was opened in 1969, and since that time our roll has increased to 1900 students. Our students come from a diverse ethnic and socio-economic background, reflective of the richly diverse nature of New Zealand itself. This diversity adds to the strength and openness of our school community as well as our friendly and accepting approach to visitors and new students. 

Our school’s philosophy is to maintain the highest standards in academic and sporting, cultural and social areas, within a disciplined and caring environment. We pride ourselves on having a progressive approach to education, with an innovative curriculum model, supported by well qualified teaching staff.  

The school is situated 30 minutes away from the International Airport, and only 20 minutes from the business/shopping centre of Auckland. 

The Principal, the Director of International Students, the Head of English Language Learning, the International Administrator, and the Homestay Co-Ordinator closely monitor and support the needs of all international students to ensure wraparound support and care for our International Students.
