Best for Boys

Great school with a true slice of NZ with students all backgrounds, cultures, and socioeconomic groups. Fantastic, dedicated staff. Performs well above its weight for a decile 6 state school. Gives private schools very strong competition, also schools that have the advantage of a hostel. Strong across all areas from academic, arts, sport, and cultural.

Tauranga boys collage

Bad experience. Teachers are bad, especially my english teacher, schools always trashed, half the time there isn’t even soap in the toliets or locks in the toilet doors.

TBC review

Would have got 5 stars if they added more car parks so I don’t have to park on the grass around people homes
Also minus points for making yr 13 wait 6 weeks until we can leave at lunchtime

Up the fortress

Up the fortress. Best school in the world. Dave does an excellent job keeping the place clean and tidy. The toilet aren’t bad if you know what ones to go to. Nearly all the teachers are GC’s and go above and beyond for you. Maybe the canteen is on the pricey side but the canteen lady’s are so nice it makes up for it.

Great school

Great school. Amazing teachers, and newly refurbished toilets. Both for both academics and athletes alike.

Alright school

Very gross toilets best learn to hold it in for 6 hours because the chance the toilet roll is cramed into the bowl is high. To top this off its quite common for the kids to kick open the door when you are in there and perhaps even film you.
Almost all the teachers I know are great people that love their work. The school has great variety and opportunities for education. Issues of bullying in the students is frequently seen and rarely fixed. Mental health support is horrible but the school is trying to improve. Extremely expensive canteen foods that are below average.

Meh it’s kinda bad

The school grounds are a bit gross compared to other schools in the region, and the community of boys is heavily toxic
