We are a school of about 600 students, located in the safe, picturesque town of Geraldine, 1.5 hours south of Christchurch. Geraldine High School welcomes students from all nationalities and cultures. We provide a caring and positive environment in which students can grow and learn. We believe strongly in academic achievement for all our students, and we specialise in an optional two year Outdoor Education programme that takes advantage of our close proximity to the mountains and rivers.. International students are well cared for, with an excellent multilevel ESOL programme that prepares students for IELTS or university, and with welcoming homestay families. Throughout the year we organise trips and activities around the South Island of New Zealand.
