Miller Avenue School

Nau mai haere mai - Welcome to Miller Avenue School, Paeroa

Miller Avenue School is constantly working on the way we deliver learning outcomes that ensure our  focus is clearly on the growth of the individual. To enable this, the quality of the teaching and teachers remains paramount, regardless of where students find themselves on the learning continuum. We believe in catering to the individual needs of students, this practice is embodied in the development of our personalised learning plans for every student in our school. Teachers, students and the Board of Trustees hold high expectations for student growth 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.

We embrace a broad range of culturally diverse groups in our student body and that of our staff.  Our current focus in 2022 is PB4L, Positive Behaviour 4 Learning, which is teaching our tamariki explicitly how to be active members of their learning by practising the school values through our Simply the Best' motto:  this means that they are learning to be: 

B: brave

E: engaged

S: sensible

T: thinking

MAS is a wonderful place to learn and teach.  We welcome you to come and visit us.
