About Us

Merivale School has a roll of approximately 150 students and is situated in the suburb of Merivale in urban Tauranga. 
 
Our school caters for children in Years 1-6.  The language of instruction in five of our classrooms is English and they work together as the Aratika team.  The other two classrooms form our Maori medium unit, Nga Hau e Wha.
 
One of these classrooms teaches in 81-100% Te Reo Maori and is a rumaki (immersion) rooms. The second class which makes up this team teaches in 51-80% Te Reo Maori. 
 
We aim to keep small numbers of children in each classroom. We have had extensive upgrades of our classrooms and learning spaces over the past two years.  Over recent years our school community has worked on reviewing our strategic direction.
