Northland Charter School ranks in the top two schools

Northland Charter School with a 100% Maori roll ranks in the top two Northland Schools for University Entrance results.

The latest University Entrance results as published by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority show a Northland charter school (with a 100% Maori roll) ranks in the top two in the region.

Te Kapehu Whetu – Terenga Paraoa is outperforming most other private and public schools in Northland in UE success and is well above the New Zealand average for UE pass rates.

E Tipu e Rea Chief Executive Graeme Osborne says ‘how can anyone believe that closing the second best high school for University Entrance in Northland is in the best interests of student success and wellbeing. This charter school’s University Entrance results are well above the New Zealand average and show that the school is working for its 100% Maori students. It’s abundantly clear that charter schools work for Maori students. This school’s 2017 University Entrance results are the second highest in Northland and well above the New Zealand average. Why shouldn’t younger Maori students be given the same opportunity to achieve at this school?”

The graph below shows the top five Northland schools, ranked by 2017 UE success.
