Director Steven Arnold invites all interested parents, and of course every interested student, to an Open Meeting next Wednesday evening to hear all!.

    WHAT: Open Meeting for new Montessori Secondary School
    WHEN: October 17, 7pm
    WHERE: Panmure District School Hall, 87 Mt Wellington Highway

Get along. If you have school-age children, what do you have to lose?



  1. Their website doesn't work yet.

  2. I would like more information about this, I would be interested in a Montessori School that offers primary as well as secondary schooling. I am enquiring on behalf of my grandson who is almost 5. My ph number is" 527-3140. Regards, Jill Whitmore

    1. I could be wrong, but I believe the only Montessori to offer secondary schooling is in Wellington. Only 3 offer primary to my knowledge - one in Christchurch, one in Wellington, and Meraki Montessori in Auckland. From my own perspective of having both my boys in Montessori from age 3 to 8 & 10 years old, Montessori delivers the more benefits the younger you are. IMO the ages of 3-6 are crucial, and 6-9 also important. 9-12 also provides benefits. But by the time my boys are ready for secondary schooling I think they will benefit from being in a non-Montessori school, so as adults they are better prepared for the world outside of Montessori.

    2. Sorry, I was mistaken, the school above that Peter did work for is secondary. Their website is working, but the link above isn't working.

    3. Hi Jill, not sure why you're wanting primary and secondary at the same campus?
      Stephen's school offers secondary only. Wa Ora in Wellington is the only one offering both.
