Mount Albert Grammar School is a Government co-educational high school, founded in 1922, with a roll of over 2700 boys and girls, of which 4% are international students from all over the world.
Mount Albert Grammar enjoys an enviable position as a premier school on the national educational landscape. Ranked fifth in New Zealand for Government Scholarships gained in 2015, the outstanding academic success of our students extends far beyond schools of a similar type.
Each year more than 90% of our International students go on to a University. A Government-certified English Language High School Preparation Programme is available to incoming students, to allow International students to improve their English before moving to mainstream classes.
Our school is recognised as the premier sporting school in New Zealand with no fewer than 16 national titles gained in recent years across a diversity of codes, and eight Sports Academies operating for talented athletes in Aquatics, Basketball, Cricket, Boys and Girls Football, Netball, Rowing and Rugby. Strong performing arts and service programmes complement our students’ educational experience.
Set on a large, superbly equipped campus, the school is located only 15 minutes from downtown Auckland. Students can feel part of our country’s biggest city, and also experience a taste of rural New Zealand on our 10.8 hectare school farm. Our facilities are equal to the best in New Zealand, and include two heated, indoor swimming pools, artificial hockey/tennis courts, large playing fields, two gymnasiums, an astronomical observatory, and a boys' boarding hostel.
Mount Albert Grammar is a vibrant, friendly and welcoming place which provides excellent levels of pastoral care. The school warmly welcomes International Students at all levels. Our International Department organises student support programmes and all accommodation - homestays for boys and girls and a boarding hostel on campus for boys.
This is a school with spirit, pride and tradition; emphasising academic and sporting achievement within a safe, caring and supportive environment, providing ample opportunity for each student who enters its gates to achieve their maximum potential.
