Kia Ora and welcome to Arohanui

Arohanui is a school dedicated to meeting the unique learning needs of students from 5-21 years of age in the West Auckland area. We have 28 classes located across 13 sites. These include satellite classes catering for primary and intermediate students, secondary options, and a transition centre for students aged 18 and over. In addition we have an Outreach Service which supports ORS funded students in mainstream schools.

We are a passionate and committed staff focused on helping our students develop to their full potential. We believe strongly in the need for an understanding, inclusive and responsive community and we are aware that we play an important part in helping to create this community for our students and their families.
