At Mount Roskill Grammar School, we take pride in behaving in a way that brings credit to our school, our community and ourselves.

These ideals are underpinned, enhanced and enriched by the values of:

  • Manaakitanga through uplifting, fostering and nurturing the mana of each person.
  • Whanaungatanga through fostering relationships and cherishing diversity, seeking the support of parents, families and whanau and making good connections between people.
  • Tūmanakotanga through demonstrating aspiration, and excellence, through a growth mindset, creativity and resilience.

In our school community we endeavour to reach “to the heights’ through our core values.

  • Excellence through aspiration, creativity, commitment and resilience.
  • Responsibility through self-management, participation, leadership and service.
  • Respect for self, others and the environment through empathy, tolerance and celebration of diversity.

These principles are enshrined in our mission and vision.


Our students will be successful, powerful learners who are active and responsible citizens


In a safe, supportive environment, MRGS will provide learning opportunities for each student to strive for excellence, realise their potential, and develop understanding of social responsibility and respect for individual and cultural differences.
