It's lowkey kinda shite

Half of the school population are bullies (including teachers), main counselor is no help, all the good teachers leave, the new class schedule where everything is 90 minutes is awful and I can guarantee all the students hate it. Teachers do nothing about bullying. Canteen food is class tho

Realistic expectations 👌

My son isn't a bullie nor has he been bullied. I can't say he loves school, but he attends willingly most days.
Very impressed with the Teachers and heads of school. Always contact us if any thing crops up, and always available for appointments if he want to discuss anything regarding our son. Teachers went the extra mile over lockdown. Have had great feed back over our sons progression throughout his time at the school.
I think they are great.

Whakatane High School

Horrible kids. Your kid will only enjoy their time there if they are the bullies. Half the teachers don’t care about the wellbeing of students, i can’t wrap my head around why half the teachers are there when they clearly hate their job and they take it out on students. The toilets are disgusting i don’t know how on earth it passes health & safety guidelines.
