Kaitaia College aims to provide an environment where students are able to grow and reach their potential not only academically and intellectually, but also emotionally and socially. Growth in all these areas is a two-way process. The school may provide the environment and challenges, but there must be active and positive participation by the students if they are to make good use of their time at school.
