The school's mission is 'A community who empowers confidence in all ākonga to embrace learning, achieve their personal best, take risks and become life-long learners'.

Te Hihi School opened on 9 March 1914 as a full primary school to serve the children of the families working on the Yates Farm in rural Karaka (south-west of Auckland).

While Te Hihi School is located in a rural area, it draws its pupils from a blend of areas, from those who live locally on "lifestyle" or rural residential properties, to those living in the rural village of Kingseat and the urban areas of Hingaia and Papakura.

The school's motto of Character · Kindness · Courtesy is built into our school culture and always at the forefront. We encourage the children to live the school motto to develop a caring attitude to their fellow students and a strong sense of pride in representing Te Hihi School.

Te Hihi is an authorised International Baccalaureate (IB) School offering the Primary Years Programme. IB World Schools share a common philosophy - a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
