Where everyone can shine

Welcome to the Ranzau School website!

Ranzau School is a decile 9 state contributing school situated in a wonderful rural setting, just 3 km from Richmond and 18 km from Nelson.

Our school is well supported by the local community and we always strive to develop strong relationships. We currently have an enthusiastic Parent Community Liaison Group and Board of Trustees. We have a committed and hard working teaching and support staff who share the vision and values of the school and community. They participate actively and willingly in all aspects of school life.

Students achieve well at Ranzau School. We place strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy, producing results consistently above the national norms. We also place high emphasis in developing responsible community members – children who are balanced, self managing, self disciplined, confident, caring, inquiring and who display a love of learning. We have strong student leadership opportunities. Our students care for each other which is visible in our highly successful buddy system and the pride they show in their school.
