Our Vision

By celebrating our unique differences, we aim to create an inclusive environment where we will all have opportunities to flourish and thrive.

Our Mission

Highfield will be a home away from home where we will learn to live together and accept each other.
Through a close connection with our community, we will create an environment that is safe, fair, honest, respectful and fun.

Highfield students will be optimistic and taught how to be good listeners, learners, thinkers and eventual leaders. Because mistakes are part of our everyday lives, we will instil resilience and a growth mindset into our way of thinking so we can face life’s challenges with grace. As a result, we will become solutions-focused, using innovation, creativity and collaboration to help solve problems.

Highfield will be a positive environment where students have access to a wide range of opportunities and possibilities. This will motivate them to set their own high expectations and be excited about their future pathway and successes.

He Aroha whakato, he aroha puta mai.
If kindness is sown, kindness you shall receive.
