New Zealand has three types of school:
• state schools, where 85% of Kiwi children go
• state-integrated schools, which may be run by a religious faith or use specialist teaching methods
• private schools.

Students at secondary schools – also known as high schools or colleges – work towards the National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA). Secondary schools also offer some vocational subjects, such as tourism and computing.
Some schools also offer Cambridge International Examinations and International Baccalaureate programmes.
