Our challenge is for Kelston Boys High School to be considered as the number one boys' school in New Zealand.
To be considered the best we welcome comparisons across a number of key performance areas including:
• academic achievement
• cultural and performing arts
• providing boys with lifelong values
To achieve our goal we will strive to be nationally recognized, exemplary in all areas of school life and to provide excellence and achievement in holistic education.
As a centre of teaching excellence with particular expertise in the teaching of boys, our staff are committed to their own development that will lead to results in the classroom. We want our community to view Kelston Boys as "school of choice for local boys" and be part of our drive to further the great reputation of this school.
