Many of our international students attend Rangitoto College for their last two or three years of high school to benefit from the excellent academic environment at Rangitoto College. It is pleasing to see our students gaining entry into some of the top universities in the world following their education at Rangitoto. Some students come to New Zealand for only a short time with different goals – to learn, grow, travel and experience a new culture. Living overseas gives our students a much wider world view and often helps them decide what they really want out of life. The international team here is proud to be part of their experience in New Zealand and work hard to make it the best it can be.
