Kio Kio School is situated in a rural setting, approximately 10 minutes north of Otorohanga.  At present, our roll stands at approximately 140 students.  We have 7 classrooms, a school library, recreation centre, solar heated swimming pool, 2 playing fields, and 2 major playgrounds.

Kio Kio School is proud of its reputation as a successful school, and we continue to strive to provide the best quality education for all students.  In 2018 the Education Review Office identified the school as successful.  

We have 7 classrooms that are named after native trees - Kowhai, Puriri, Pohutukawa, Rimu, Totara, Kakihatea, Kauri.

Children are allocated a house for their time at Kio Kio School for sporting events, etc... Our Houses are named after local maunga (mountains) - Kakepuku, Pirongia, Puketarata, and Maungatautari. Our students visit their maunga to learn about the local history and the significance this maunga had on the local people.

We are extremely fortunate to have a community that is very supportive of our school.  Parents are welcome and are encouraged to become involved in a range of school events.  Approximately half of our students are from farming backgrounds, whilst the other half travel to school from town.
