Waiheke High was only one of 4 schools showing a lower figures across all levels (1,2,3, and UE) and worst amongst decile 6 schools. This doesn’t bode well for future UE statistics. Where is the school going wrong? Is it the Board of Trustees, or teachers?
This contrasts with the performance of Selwyn College a decile 4 school. The government had to step in 2008 to address wrangling between the Board of Trustees and opposing parent groups. A commissioner was appointed to run the school and since when it has thrived, more than doubling performance which is now over 90% at all 4 levels.
