About Green Bay High School

By choosing to attend their neighbourhood school our families and students continue a relationship with their local community. The benefits that come from that continuity are significant. Everything is easier – getting to school, seeing friends, making contact with teachers, attending sports practices or rehearsals, knowing who your children know. Attending the neighbourhood high school makes sense.

Green Bay High School has been serving its community for over 40 years. Over this time it has been a leader in educational innovation, nurtured an outstanding number of very successful graduates and placed a high value on developing independent, confident young adults.

Now, as we accelerate into the new century, our school is taking the best of our past and weaving it into a fresh vision for our future. We want our reputation for being a small, friendly, semi-rural school to be blended with a sharp, professional focus on meeting the learning needs of the next generation of adults.

The quality of a school reflects the quality of its relationship with the community it serves. Where there is a genuine partnership with families the outcomes for students are always enhanced.

Green Bay High School is a state co-educational (years 9 to 13) decile 8 secondary school, with a roll of about 1350 students. Located on the edge of the Waitakere Ranges, much of the hinterland of the school is native bush reserve, flowing down to Auckland’s west coast beaches and Manukau Harbour.  The majority of students come from the suburbs of Titirangi, Green Bay and Glen Eden and the semi-rural areas of Oratia, Laingholm and Huia.  The school offers a wide range of sports, with a focus on both traditional sports codes but also seeking to respond to a diversity of interests in non-traditional sports activities.

The school is performing strongly.  The recent review by the Educational Review Office during Term 2 (2017) determined that the school be on a four to five-year review cycle.

I invite you to join us at this exciting time for our school and together we can make sure that our young people are the successful adults of the future.
