The area that Merivale School is also known by Tutarawananga.
Historically for local iwi, it was the first area in Tauranga Moana where learning took place.
That tradition continues at our school today with the focus on putting learning first.
Here at Merivale School we are passionate about learning, we enjoy success and challenge, and we all thrive on being part of a team.
Our vision is to be our best. To do that we must expect the best - which is one of our 4 school core values.
Our number one priority is to provide our learners with the best educational outcomes. From digital technology to learning support services, we are constantly looking to provide and improve on what we offer to our students, staff, whanau and community.
Ultimately, we are striving to develop future leaders and role models - but at the same time we want to have fun doing it!
Merivale School are on an exciting journey. Nau mai, haere mai. Come join

Due to New Zealand's Covid-19 traffic light system being removed and restrictions lifted last night it will no longer be necessary for masks to be worn at school.
Whanau are now able to drop off and pick up students from within the school gates, however at this stage we still ask that whanau do not enter the classrooms.
