Kristin School is an independent, modern, co-educational International Baccalaureate (IB) World School located in Albany, Auckland with approximately 1650 students aged from six months to 18 years old. Established in 1978, Kristin is non-denominational and welcomes students from all cultures and backgrounds.

All learning environments share the same 50-acre, park-like campus: Little Doves Early Learning Centre, Kristin Kindergarten, Kristin Junior School (for 5-10 year olds), Kristin Middle School (for 10-15 year olds) and Kristin Senior School (for 15-18 year olds).

Kristin was the first IB World School in New Zealand offering the IB Diploma Programme since 1986, and the first school to offer the IB Primary Years Programme, IB Middle Years Programme and IB Diploma Programme catering for students from Year 0-13.
