Known for delivering excellence in education, ACG Tauranga offers
a dynamic, supportive and nurturing learning environment for all students,
from Preschool to Year 13.
With an emphasis on academic achievement, our students enjoy the benefits of world-class teaching
from specialist educators to become confident and capable young learners. Our supportive, holistic
approach ensures students reach their highest potential during their time with us and are well
prepared for life beyond.
Student community: our students enjoy learning and this fosters a rewarding and engaging school environment.
Whole person education: personalised attention from specialist teachers, tutoring, school houses, sport, arts and music enable our students to achieve their very best.
Academic success: in the Cambridge International IGCSE exams, ACG Tauranga had a 95% pass rate, which is among the best in the country.
STEM: our programme is one of the best in the Bay and encourages students from a young age to get involved.
Accessible location: We provide safe and reliable buses throughout the Bay of Plenty.
From Primary school, our students gain an advantage as they receive lessons in English, humanities, maths, visual arts, drama and PE & health. Specialist teaching from Year 3 includes science, music and Spanish.
The range of subjects increases as students progress through the school, and by Year 11, chemistry, computer science, economics, biology, physics, history and business studies are ALL on offer.
Students from Year 7 benefit from the wealth of information that a specialist teacher can offer, which helps them to enjoy their subjects to the fullest. As a result, students gain a much better understanding of the knowledge and skills required in each respective subject discipline; something which provides enormous assistance to their learning when they move into their College years.
The decision to change schools is an important one – Our ACG student for a day™ is the best way for prospective students to experience our welcoming and inclusive environment and see what makes us unique.
During the ACG student for a day™, your child will experience out school firsthand, by following a personalised timetable. They’ll spend the day in our classes, mix with our students and learn from our specialist teachers.
We have a top STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programme that encourages students to get involved from a young age and enjoy the huge benefits of a STEM curriculum – setting them up for endless career opportunities later in life.
Because our learning environment is supportive and engaging, children develop a passion for learning and thrive in these STEM classes.
The best way to decide if ACG Tauranga is the right fit for your child is to come in and see us. You can tour our campus, view our excellent facilities, and meet the principal, staff and students. To help with your decision-making, we’ll explain the Cambridge Curriculum and its benefits, and answer any questions you may have. We run weekly guided tours on Wednesday at 10am during term time. Plus we offer our popular ‘Student for a Day’.
