|Maniototo Area School is an Area School providing a unified educational programme from Year 1 to Year 13. We were the first Area School in New Zealand, providing seamless education on one campus for both primary and secondary students from all parts of the Maniototo.
There is a strong tradition of academic achievement and this constitutes an important part of the School's ethos. Course structures provide for students wishing to go to University, as well as for those for whom alternative courses are more relevant and appropriate. As a school we are looking forward into the new millennium as we develop the use of e-learning and video conferencing. These technologies allow us to offer far more courses than many schools as we can supplement our core classes with a wide range of opportunities to suit the student.
The School also reflects the significant sporting and cultural aspirations of the community through the use of several shared facilities, such as the Astro-Turf, Gymnasium, Swimming Pool and the Community Library. This enables the School and the district to enjoy the use of amenities not normally found in a community of this size.
