Highlands Intermediate School


Highlands Intermediate School is a large intermediate school close to the centre of New Plymouth City. It is set in large grounds with established trees, gardens and large playing fields.

Highlands intermediate ensures students are fully immersed in the life of the school. We encourage them to become involved sport, music, camping experiences, productions and to have fun and make new friends. We welcome international students to join our friendly learning environment and have been hosting students and welcoming their families for many years now. The local students are from a diverse range of cultures, which makes it easy for international students to make new friends.

We have high expectations for all of our students and want them to achieve. International students are provided with extra learning assistance in curriculum areas to improve their English and gain a better understanding of New Zealand culture. Our international students leave Highlands Intermediate fully prepared for secondary school, whether in New Zealand or back in their home country.
