Student Statements

Read more from our school leaders

We value the opportunity to play a part in the education of your son. We recognise the vital importance of education for young people if they are to meet successfully the challenges and demands of a rapidly changing world. Schools in New Zealand are also having to meet many changes. We at Rotorua Boys’ High School are prepared for these changes, putting the best interests of our students first.


As the oldest secondary school serving Rotorua we believe that, despite these changes, there are certain constant values in education. These values have been with this school throughout its long history and will ensure that it goes on providing an excellent education for the young men of Rotorua.


Furthermore, Rotorua Boys’ High School is part of the traditional and successful network of state boys’ high schools that has been long established throughout New Zealand. We believe that boys’ schools are the best for boys!
