Achieving Academic Success

Students of Palmerston North Girls’ High School are expected to be supportive of each other in achieving their educational goals.

Students have the responsibility for ensuring that their own and others' education can progress.


Commencing at Year 9 with a broad foundation across all eight learning areas of the New Zealand Curriculum, our subject option choices become increasingly specialised over successive years.
