Why Pasadena​

We are an inner city Intermediate School surrounded by Western Springs Park, MOTAT and Auckland Zoo. 

Students at Pasadena always come first. In our learning Environment, students will learn, grow and develop socially, intellectually and culturally over the two years they are with us. We pride ourselves on providing an innovative and holistic education where personal excellence is achieved. Relationships are the cornerstone of our school which ensures students make the most out of the diverse range of opportunities Pasadena provides.

At Pasadena we provide students with the necessary skills and strategies to ensure they are motivated and engaged in their learning. They have opportunities to contribute to what they learn, where they learn and how they learn within a safe and supportive environment.

Our approach to teaching places students at the centre of all learning. Students collaborate, synthesis and create to become globally connected citizens.

Through our specialist programmes we broaden student’s practical experience in music, dance, drama, technology, visual arts, food technology and nutrition. These classes allow students to transfer knowledge between subjects through an integrated approach.

Students are encouraged to take part in the wide range of opportunities that are on offer culturally, academically, sporting
