Glen Eden Intermediate School is recognised as a leading Intermediate School in New Zealand with a strong focus on fostering a love of learning.
Glen Eden Intermediate School prides itself on the academic opportunities that it provides for International Students. We promote excellence by providing all students with a balanced curriculum and a wide variety of learning opportunities. Students are encouraged to set goals, become independent learners and develop an awareness of how they learn best. We aim to equip our students with the skills they require to become lifelong learners, with a particular focus on numeracy and literacy. Our students regularly gain honours, both nationally and internationally, in many academic, cultural and sporting arenas.
Our school is situated in the suburb of Titirangi, 20 minutes from the CBD in Auckland. We are surrounded by native bush, close to local beaches and golf courses. GEIS is a large well resourced school with modern facilities catering for the ‘middle years,’ years 7 to 8 boys and girls aged 11-13 years. We have 34 classrooms and 10 specialist rooms and are able to offer a wide range of programmes. Our teaching staff are highly skilled and committed to encouraging our students to strive for excellence and reach their potential.
The Pastoral care and academic achievement of our students is a priority. We take a limited number of International Students so that we are able to place only one International student per class. Kiwi buddies are assigned to our students to enhance the transition process and ensure they are well looked after. The professional and highly educated families that support our community also make caring home stay families. As a school we have a long history of International Students. Our international links with sister schools in China, Japan, South Korea & Thailand reinforce for our students, the concept of globalisation in the 21st century. GEIS students embrace all cultures and the students enjoy being part of our buddy system for our Internationals.
Glen Eden Intermediate School has agreed to observe and be bound by the Code of Practice for the Pastoral Care of International Students and have been a signatory to the Code since 2002.
