About us

Milford School was opened in 1926 and is a well-established school situated on the shores of Lake Pupuke on Auckland’s North Shore. Our school is community orientated, a place where the partnership between the parents/whanau and the school is regularly promoted and actively sought.

Our school vision is Empowered to Learn and Achieve, and we aim to empower our students to learn and to achieve every day both when they are at school and in their lives beyond. If they are equipped with the skills and strategies to face what lies ahead, they will achieve success. Empowerment comes from within, and we want to enable our students to have the growth mindset required for this.

We have four guiding principles that lie under this vision, and they are:

Commitment, Engagement, Respect, Success

Through a focus on these principles, students will have the base in which to be successful lifelong learners who are empathetic, caring members of society.
