Parents have a lot to think about when choosing a school for their child. 

As part of our School Report NCEA and National Standards data project, we want to know what you think makes a good school.

Is it the decile and facilities that make a fantastic learning environment or is it down to the teachers and community spirit?

Do you value the academic record of a school or is it more important to have a strong emphasis on your child's passions such as arts or sports?

Zoning and class sizes can also play a part, as well as costs such as fees and uniforms.

If your child already goes to a great school - send us a photo.

Tell us what you think makes a good school and why by clicking the big green button.
