Curriculum

Dunstan High School offers a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum. All learners participate in a learning programme which, as well as covering the national curriculum, develops the key competencies required of 21st century learners.

The Year 9 and Year 10 curriculum ensures that a sound knowledge and skills base is developed, while at year 11, 12 and 13 all courses lead to NCEA qualifications.

The most able students are catered for through extension and enrichment programmes co-ordinated by our designated GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) teacher. A dedicated Learning Support Department caters for those students who need extra assistance. Each child has an individualised programme of support to ensure their needs are met.
