The New Zealand education system is modern and innovative. It is student-centred and aims to produce leaders and citizens equipped for the 21st century. Students are encouraged to think critically, question their understandings of the world and be active participants in their learning.

Year Levels

New Zealand children start primary school when they are five years old and attend secondary school until they are 17 or 18.
