For over 100 years, we have researched, developed, reviewed, and become experts in adolescent girls’ education.
Taranaki Dio is an outstanding learning community for students and teachers alike. We take pride in preparing our girls to be passionate, life-long learners.
We know and understand girls, therefore, our curriculum challenges and inspires our students to be courageous, resolute and successful citizens, confidently flourishing in a rapidly changing, information-rich world.
Our Approach & Results
We are immensely proud of our curriculum and, in particular, how it remains true to the values of our school and is at the forefront of innovation and education research.
Taranaki Dio is proud of the very broad range of successes our students experience in annual NCEA results. We are regularly the top achieving school for pass rates in Taranaki and in the top group of schools throughout New Zealand.
We aim to develop the whole girl and build capacity for her to be a discerning learner: to be engrossed and fascinated, to query and probe, to reflect and consider, and to appreciate the differences between information, knowledge and wisdom.
