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.
We are working on being a progressive school that embraces what it is to be successful at school, we provide some wonderful school extra curricular activities, classroom teaching, values and skills. Ākonga (students) are encouraged to participate in their community and join some of the many community groups. Our primary focus is to continue developing the following:
-Enviro school philosophy
-MAS graduate profile

2023 has been a wonderful year of growth and opportunity for our ākonga (students) and kaiako (teachers) & kaiāwhina (support staff) and our recent parent survey results attest to this.
MAS is a fun and engaging place to learn and teach. We welcome you to come and visit us.
