Welcome to Kerikeri High School.

We are proud of our warm and caring school, where we work hard to serve our diverse and kind-hearted community. We believe strongly in achievement at its highest levels, and in students participating fully in all aspects of school life across the Four Cornerstones of a balanced education - Academic, Sporting, Cultural and Leadership with Service. Our students become positive, connected and successful and they thrive in our busy environment.

Our school sets and expects high standards, and as a PB4L (Positive Behaviour for Learning) School, we explicitly teach and positively reinforce our expectations and values, in our school expressed by the acroynm WAKA:
We are Learners - Whaia te Matauranga
Act with Respect - Manaaki te tangata
Keep Ourselves Safe - Tiaki tangata
Always Proud - Kia manawanui

We enjoy a close and strong connection with our local hapu, Ngāti Rēhia, and we recognise them as kaitiaki of our rohe. We strive to make our school a bicultural setting where all our students feel a sense of whanaungatanga and belonging.

There is something for everyone in our inclusive and rich environment.

Welcome once, welcome twice, welcome three times to Kerikeri High School.
