International students who do not have English as their first language will usually be asked to sit an assessment test in Christchurch, to determine whether they are ready to study in mainstream classes. All international students are mainstreamed and they must have the English skills to cope with classroom and homework tasks. Note: Entry to senior classes (Years 11-13) requires a higher level of English than entry to junior classes.


The NZ curriculum framework consists of 7 Essential Learning Areas: languages; mathematics; science; technology; social sciences; the arts; health and physical education. Rangi Ruru offers a wide range of curriculum choices within this framework. These include music, photography, graphic design, theatre arts; thinking skills; dance; drama; design and technology; fashion, fabric & design; media studies and computer technology.
