Welcome To Te Anau School

Welcome to Te Anau School, where our vision is to 'Climb Our Way to the Top.' Nestled on the edge of the breathtaking Fiordland National Park, our students draw inspiration from our mountainous surroundings to reach for their best, whether in the classroom, exploring the bush, or enjoying time with friends on the playground.

We are a school that loves to get out there and do it. We regularly utilise the National Park and our lake. We are part of Kids Restore the Kepler which is a programme to help restore birdsong to an area just across the lake from Te Anau Township.

We are a contributing (Year 0 – Year 6) school (U4) with a roll of between 280 and 300 students. We have a decile ranking of 9.

The school site is on Milford Road and occupies a tree lined site of 2.2 hectares in the centre of Te Anau township.

The community has a town/country population of about 2500 – we are a holiday destination for some people who have holiday homes here. Overseas tourists also visit us in large numbers, especially in the summer months.
