Makara Model School is a decile 10, full primary school catering for students from Year 1 to Year 8. Students come from around the Makara district and Karori on our school bus.

We are committed to providing quality experiences for students, enabling access to a wide range of educational opportunities. We offer programmes tailored to suit, in a stunning environment purpose built for learning and having fun. We currently have spaces for out of zone enrolments for 2022. If you are interested, please get in touch with us.
