Since 1958 our school has been an important part of the thriving Paeroa community and wider Hauraki District. A decile 2 full primary school across Y0–8, it is well-resourced and offers a stimulating learning environment that embraces the Treaty of Waitangi and strives to continually improve and build a curriculum that weaves Tikanga Māori into everyday learning and activities in the kura.

We are a health promoting and energise school with a dedicated music teacher and full sports, arts and education outside the classroom programmes that are enjoyed by all. Paeroa is home of the LandP bottle and located in middle of the 'golden triangle' between Auckland, Hamilton and Tauranga. The Coromandel Peninsula and east coast beaches are only 30 minutes away, while the beautiful Karangahake Gorge, and numerous other scenic bush walks and cycle tracks are right on the school's doorstep.
