Waiheke High School
The quiet and beautiful Waiheke Island is just a short 50-minute boat ride from the center of Auckland. This tourist town swells its population in the summer, making it a fun and super active outdoor environment for students. There are many hiking trails that the locals love to show to their international students.The island is famous for its vineyards that produce quality New Zealand wine. Waiheke High School organizes class trips to visit the wineries where students get to see first hand how the vineyards are managed and how wines are presented to the public. This location is a great option for those who are thinking about a gastronomy career.
Waiheke High School is ideal for independent students. The lifestyle is laid back and students have the ability to get around by themselves. Host families live near the school, so students are able to walk to and from school in a short amount of time. Day-to-day life is quiet, with students having access to Auckland on weekends for shopping, cinemas (including 3D), eateries, etc. If you are looking for a real “kiwi experience“, Waiheke High School is a great choice.
