I'd like to extend you a warm welcome to The Bay of Islands International Academy, Te Whare Matauranga ō Te Tii. We welcome and mihi to whānau, parents, caregivers, students and friends of the school in equal measure. We are a school that strives to build and support a community of confident, engaged and culturally grounded learners with character. Developing international mindedness is key to a peaceful and inclusive world.

We respect and honour each child, their individual skills and perspectives and seek to design our programmes of learning in the context of their lives, and as global citizens. We respect and honour the partnership represented by the Treaty of Waitangi and seek always to value and elevate cultural knowledge as a key part of measuring success for our children.

We welcome visitors to our school. We also welcome enquiries from those looking for a rich and vibrant alternative style of education for their children. We are proudly an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP).

You can email me at principal@boi.ac.nz, or email admin@boi.ac.nz to enquire about our current enrolment status.

Ngā manaakitanga ki a koutou katoa.
