Lead School

Miller Avenue School

Miller Avenue School is a decile two, Year 0-8 school situated in the rural town of Paeroa. Paeroa is a well -established town with a strong historical context and supportive community. It features a traditionally strong Maori community with several Marae that host regional and national events, as well as for local iwi.

Students attending the school come from a range of backgrounds with an equal mix of Maori and European students. There are very small numbers from other ethnic backgrounds and fee paying students at times.

The school is inclusive of difference. Extensive resources are allocated to students with learning and behaviour needs. Gifted and talented students are also catered for. It is a Health Promoting School, an Energise school and has achieved well in the areas of sports, fitness and the percentage of students involved in out of school organisations.

On site we have a number of services which cater for a cluster of schools. These are RTLB, RLit, Supplementary Teaching Support Teacher and Social Worker in Schools. Adult learning is also encouraged with many organisations using the school’s hall and other facilities.

The school provides a stimulating, safe learning environment for students, an enthusiastic and hardworking Board of Trustees is supported by parent groups who fund and support school events and generally engage with the school, informing school policy and practice.
