21st Century learning is not just about learning knowledge but also how to construct it and apply it to life. Students in the buildings at Tarawera High School are provided with rich and varied learning experiences to cater for different learning needs and rates of learning.
New approaches to classroom design give teachers in modern schools the opportunity to use innovative and imaginative teaching practices to better meet the needs of all their students.
Teachers share large learning spaces, rather than traditional classrooms, with children at different levels, learning different things.
Tarawera High School includes an Administration Block, Performing Arts Theatre, Wharenui complex, Visual Arts Centre, Hospitality Suite and learning houses.
