Nau mai, Haere mai.
Welcome to Maidstone Intermediate School. Our school is situated in the centre of Upper Hutt City and caters for the middle school years (11-13 years). We pride ourselves on providing a safe, stimulating and challenging learning environment. We offer all students a wide variety of academic, cultural and sporting opportunities that set them on a path to be productive, life-long learners. Our six core values of Respect, Responsibility, Manaakitanga, Integrity, Teamwork, and Courage form the heart of Maidstone. Maidstone students and staff alike understand and practice these values. This leads to a secure, caring and supportive environment for our learners. The pre-adolescent years are an exciting time – a time when students are beginning to view the world and their part in it with new awareness and understanding. At Maidstone Intermediate we recognise that these years are unique and require programmes that meet the specific needs of this age group. Our programmes challenge students to develop their skills and talents through a broad range of learning experiences. We offer a number of specialist curriculum areas, options programmes, leadership roles and sporting opportunities as well as sound academic-based classroom programmes. Open communication is critical and we invite you to participate in your child’s learning and encourage you to support the many educational activities throughout the year.
Parents and caregivers are very much a part of our school community. We welcome you to the vibrant and stimulating environment that is Maidstone Intermediate. Wh?ia te iti kahurangi ki te tohu koe me he maunga teitei. Aim for the highest cloud so that if you miss it, you will hit a lofty mountain.
