Enrolment Introduction

Green Bay High School is a state co-educational (Years 9 to 13) decile 8 secondary school, with a growing roll of approximately 1650 students.

Located on the edge of the Waitakere Ranges, much of the hinterland of the school is native bush reserve, flowing down to Auckland’s west coast beaches and Manukau Harbour. The majority of students come from the suburbs of Titirangi, Green Bay and Glen Eden and the semi-rural areas of Oratia, Laingholm and Huia. The school offers a wide range of sports, with a focus on both traditional sports codes but also seeking to respond to a diversity of interests in non-traditional sports activities.
Green Bay High School has been serving its community for over 40 years. Over this time it has been a leader in educational innovation, nurtured an outstanding number of very successful graduates and placed a high value on developing independent, confident young adults. The quality of a school reflects the quality of its relationship with the community it serves. Where there is a genuine partnership with families the outcomes for students are always enhanced.
