The New Plymouth Adventist Christian School was originally established on this site in 1981 as a one classroom school. Situated on 1.5 hectares of land, there was ample area for buildings and playgrounds. Demand for quality education grew and in 1993, the Board of Trustees appointed a second full-time teacher. Later in 1993, the school integrated with the Government schools system. While governed by the Board of Trustees, its Proprietors, the New Zealand Seventh Day Adventist Schools Association, jointly shares the responsibility for the maintenance of the buildings and ensures the Special Character of the school is maintained at all times.
To this day, New Plymouth Adventist Christian School continues to effectively guide and support students successfully through the primary years of their education, at the same time caring for their social, spiritual and emotional well-being.
Throughout its existence, New Plymouth Adventist Christian School has preserved a strong Christian focus. Established by the Seventh-day Adventist church, its association with the church continues, providing solid governance and leadership. The Adventist school system has been operating for over a century and is now the largest Protestant education system in the world.
