About Mountview School

Nga mihi mahana koutou katoa- A warm welcome to you all!

Mountview School- Te Maunga i Kitea, is a school in which 21st Century learning is demonstrated by an experienced and highly skilled group of teachers and support staff.

At Mountview School we focus on learning programmes where students drive their own learning and are required to problem solve and work collaboratively using an inquiry approach.  All students receive a responsive learning programme that meets their needs as learners. We use formative assessment and culturally responsive practices within our classroom to engage our students in their learning as well as valuing their well-being. 

We offer our year 7 and 8 students an on-site technology programme in a purpose built state of the art classroom and specialist teacher.  Our large hall allows us to provide specialist sporting programmes and we also have a music specialist based in our music suite.  Learning is constantly shared with parents using See Saw which allows parents to see and comment on their child's progress at any time.  We take the time to sit with whanau and ask the aspirations they have for their child so we can integrate these into learning programmes. 

We are unique, not just in Taupo but also nationally in that we are one of the few schools that offer classrooms in either Te Reo Maori and English mediums. We are dedicated to offering choice to our community in valuing our bi-cultural nation and the importance of this to our students and their education in New Zealand.  We are increasingly becoming multi-cultural as our commmunity brings more ethnicities to Taupo.   Unique also to Mountview are our digital technologies and the way in which teachers and students optimize these to make learning engaging, fun and relevant to today’s children and the world they live in. 

Come in any time and see cutting edge education in an inclusive New Zealand school that celebrates the richness of our New Zealand heritage and diversity within the space of personalised learning.
