List Of Schools In The Auckland Region

The Auckland Region is the most populous region of New Zealand, containing the country's most populous city, Auckland, as well the towns of Wellsford, Warkworth, Helensville, the Hibiscus Coast, Pukekohe and Waiuku and their surrounding rural areas, plus many islads in the Hauraki Gulf including Waiheke Island and Great Barrier Island. It contains a few small rural primary schools, some small town primary and secondary schools, and a large number of city schools. As of June 2011, there are 538 primary and secondary schools in Auckland, enrolling over 267,000 students.

In New Zealand schools, students begin formal education in Year 1 at the age of five. Year 13 is the traditional final year of secondary education, with Years 14 and 15 referring to students who stay in secondary school beyond Year 13 (students are entitled to stay in secondary school until the 1 January following their 19th birthday if need be). The list of schools below is broken up into primary and intermediate schools, which includes contributing primary schools (Years 1-6), full primary schools (Years 1-8), and intermediate schools (Years 7 and 8); secondary schools, which includes normal secondary schools (Years 9-15), secondary schools with intermediate (Years 7-15), junior secondary schools (Years 7-10) and senior secondary schools (Years 11-15); composite schools (Years 1-15); and special schools and teen parent units. Primary and intermediate schools are further broken up into the local board (or group of local boards) of the Auckland Council in which each school is located.

State schools are those fully funded by the government and at which no fees for tuition of domestic students (i.e. New Zealand citizens and permanent residents, and Australian citizens) can be charged, although a donation is commonly requested. A state integrated school is a former private school with a special character based on a religious or philosophical belief that has been integrated into the state system. State integrated schools charge "attendance dues" to cover the building and maintenance of school buildings, which are not owned by the government, but otherwise they like state schools cannot charge fees for tuition of domestic students but may request a donation. Private schools charge fees to its students for tuition, as do state and state integrated schools for tuition of international students.

The socioeconomic decile indicates the socioeconomic status of the school's catchment area. A decile of 1 indicates the school draws from a poor area; a decile of 10 indicates the school draws from a well-off area. The decile ratings used here come from the Ministry of Education Te Kete Ipurangi website and from the decile change spreadsheet listed in the references. The deciles were last revised using information from the 2006 Census. The roll of each school changes frequently as students start school for the first time, move between schools, and graduate. The rolls given here are those provided by the Ministry of Education, and are based on figures from November 2012. The Ministry of Education institution number links to the Te Kete Ipurangi page for each school.

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)

    Alvina felt herself swept ... into a dusky region where men had dark faces and translucent yellow eyes, where all speech was foreign, and life was not her life. It was as if she had fallen from her own world on to another, darker star, where meanings were all changed.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    The schools begin with what they call the elements, and where do they end?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Lovers, forget your love,
    And list to the love of these,
    She a window flower,
    And he a winter breeze.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
