Rangitoto College has been hosting international students for over 15 years and we have developed excellent systems to help students adapt to life in a new country. First language support is available for Korean, Chinese and Spanish speaking students.

A dedicated team of non-teaching and teaching staff, the IB Diploma co-ordinator and a Deputy Principal takes care of our IB students, meeting with them regularly to check they are doing well academically and personally.
