Welcome to the Glen Innes School!
At the start of the 2013 school year Glen Innes School will be a full primary catering to students from year 1 - 8.
Our small family orientated school has an average role of about 195 students from varying nationalities. Even our staff have travelled from far and choose to be here!
Situated in Glen Innes, a diverse East Auckland suburb, we strive to produce students who will not only be able to hold their own as they move through the educational system - but to excell. To achieve this we have introduced an online learning programme for the upper primary classes as well as introducing netbook classes as part of the Manaiakalani Programme in the Tamaki area. Our role is to prepare students for the next phase of their schooling to ensure that they will be successful at the next transition point.
Each term, the teachers put lots of thought into the integrated units which are taught through an inquiry process called ZIP to ensure that as the students learn, they are challenged to question and at the same time be excited by new knowledge. There is a strong emphasis on the basics of numeracy and literacy to ensure all students have the tools to tackle the curriculum. Our 2011 ERO report indicates we are providing an excellent foundation for all.
You are invited not only to view our website but to visit our school and experience for yourself why this little school is so loved by all who come through the doors.
