Our students achieve. We have consistently achieved NCEA pass rates which are at the highest level nationally. We produce high calibre young people who have the skills to become valued members of society.
We know the importance that our diverse community plays in developing our students and look for meaningful opportunities to form partnerships where our students learn from community members. We can honestly say we are an integral and important part of the East Otago community and “proud to be Eastern”.
