One of the key Kristin benefits is having all four schools on one site, so the journey of learning is a continuous one, from early childhood to our senior graduates. While each school adheres to the unique Kristin philosophy that learning goes beyond the classroom, they all add their own pattern and fabric to the curriculum, to challenge each student based on their age and ability.
Over 35 years ago we were the first school in New Zealand to introduce the International Baccalaureate programme, and we continue to deliver tailored, inquiry-based IB programmes for all students from Kindergarten onwards.
Our Senior School students have a choice to study either NCEA or the two-year IB Diploma, depending on their preferred learning-style and future goals.
