Welcome to Rangitoto

Rangitoto College is well-known nationally and internationally for providing an excellent learning environment and preparing students for future success. International students come to Rangitoto College from over 25 different countries and make up around 8% of our student population. 

 Some students come to New Zealand for only a short time with different goals – to learn, grow, travel and experience a new culture. These students often choose different subjects like Dance, Construction or Photography and enjoy participating in a range of sports and activities. We work closely with some carefully chosen tour companies and help our students find the right trips for their weekends and holidays so they happy an opportunity to see as much of New Zealand as they can.

We would like to welcome you to come and experience life in New Zealand while continuing to study towards your long term academic goals.”
