Miller Avenue School

Welcome to Miller Avenue School, Paeroa

Miller Avenue School provides a stimulating learning environment which caters for all learners' needs. Teachers, students and the Board of Trustees hold high expectations for student achievement and there has been a steady rise in achievement across the whole school because of this. There is a pleasant mix of traditional and modern school extra curricular activities, classroom teaching, values and skills. Students are encouraged to participate in their community and join some of the many community groups.

Students attending the school come from a range of backgrounds with and equal mix of Maori and European students. There are also small numbers from other ethnic backgrounds.
