Ficino Primary School is committed to providing the finest quality education for girls and boys from year 1 to year 8. It focuses on encouraging and nurturing the student's latent potential in a broad range of academic, artistic and physical areas.
The School is for parents seeking a quality education which also provides grounding in admirable and sometimes forgotten virtues and values. It is a school where words like Truth, Aspiration, Excellence, Courtesy and Courage are part of everyday conversation between the children and teachers. We encourage and foster a positive outlook and universal virtues such as truthfulness, self-discipline, courtesy and consideration for others.
Pupils are provided with the finest quality material from many fields and traditions. From day one they are exposed to the giants in their respective fields such as Mozart, Shakespeare, Pythagoras, Socrates, Da Vinci and others. All these greats are skillfully incorporated into the teaching curriculum of Mathematics, English, Science, Music, Art and Literature. The best of past and present are united in equipping our pupils for the life ahead of them.
A dedicated, well-qualified staff committed to these ideals, provides the foundation for this enterprise.
Ficino School is a member of the Independent Schools of New Zealand (ISNZ).
