Massey High School is a co-educational secondary school, founded in 1969 with a roll of 166 third formers. The school was initially based at Henderson High School until the buildings on our current site at Don Buck Road were completed in 1970. Since then, we have grown to a roll of over 2000 students, with a full range of classes from Year 9 to Year 13.

 Massey High School has built a proud record of academic achievement with very good pass rates in external examinations. Many of our top students gain National Scholarships. We provide quality education and numerous other opportunities including sports, music, the arts, performing arts and cultural activities.

Students are placed into one of the four "Schools" on the Massey High School Campus, and there are two Dean's working with them in each school.

Many opportunities are offered to students to develop leadership skills. Years 9 and 10 students elect a representative from their form class to the Junior Forum. Years 11 to 13 elect their representatives to the Student Council who play a significant role in the organisation of many important school events.

School Prefects are elected towards the end of Year 12. These students have shown leadership potential during their time at the school and have contributed to the wider school community.

Each school within the whole school campus has their own Senate - comprising of class representatives and providing additional leadership opportunities.
