    Default Schooling in NZ?

    Do kids have to go to schools in the zone you live in or are you free to decide where your kids should be educated? I mean state schools, not private.

    Generally speaking, children will go to their zoned school. Some schools will accept out of zone applications, but if the school is a good one it rarely gets accepted as in zone children will fill it. If you look to move to an area zoned for a school you want, check with the school BEFORE you pick your house as to what is in zone. My daughters school zone has a particular street in it where only people who live in even numbered houses are in zone! Caught out quite a lot of folks!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    Thanks Taffy. Is there an easy way to find out the different zones in an area?

    You can see school zones here: Ministry of Education - School Enrolment Zones

    However they are not exact, they only give a general area.
