Te Poi School is ru­ral but close to town.

Class sizes are small with ex­cel­lent stu­dent stu­dent/ teacher ra­tios.

Te Poi is a fam­ily school where stu­dents learn to get along and solve prob­lems in a re­spon­si­ble and pos­i­tive way. They strive for ex­cel­lence in the class­room on the sports field and even on the stage.

The staff work together to pro­vide a cur­ricu­lum tai­lored to the school’s set­ting and size.

Te Poi School in­cor­po­rates the past, its com­mu­nity and fu­ture­fo­cused learn­ing to en­able stu­dents to reach their po­ten­tial.

Te Poi School is devel­op­ing dig­i­tal ca­pa­bil­i­ties and has PC and Ap­ple com­put­ers in both class­rooms.

The stu­dents are devel­op­ing on­line port­fo­lios to show­case their learn­ing and achieve­ments.

They make full use of the school’s web­site to demon­strate to oth­ers what they are dis­cov­er­ing in the class­room.

Skype is used to com­mu­ni­cate with ex­perts and other schools around New Zealand and the world.

Te Poi School is a small school where big things hap­pen.

Small coun­try school, big heart: Te Poi School stu­dents hav­ing fun in the sun.
