Top 10 Auckland Secondary Schools By Academic Ranking for 2021


Our Data sourced from Ministry of Education( New Zealand Qualifications Authority(NZQA) and schools analyzed by Metro.

The ranking favours University Entrance Pass Rates as we feel that although the majority of school leavers will not attend university, a good UE pass rate indicates that a school focuses on academic achievement across all students. UE data is also harder to manipulate as it is a proportion of all school leavers, regardless of year level.

The ranked schools were picked from all schools in Greater Auckland except special needs, Maori immersion and religious schools with very small rolls.
