Welcome to Apii Te Uki Ou

Kia Orana and welcome to Apii Te Uki Ou, a great place to learn, laugh and be a kid throughout this 2022 school year.

Apii Te Uki Ou is a Ministry of Education and privately funded school located on the main island of Rarotonga. It is located on the beachfront in the village of Ngatangiia.

We are an independent school, offering quality Pre-school, Primary and Junior Secondary education. We have mostly New Zealand Qualified educators yet have a distinctive Cook Islands feel. Our mission is to “provide an inclusive, nurturing environment that caters for individuals needs, challenging students to excel in a changing world.”

Our school was established in 1993 by a group of dedicated parents who shared a vision to create a school environment where every child had the opportunity to develop and grow to the very best of their ability; academically, socially and physically.

Today Apii Te Uki Ou is a thriving, energetic school with over 220 students. Approximately 80% of our students are Cook Islanders, 10 % are New Zealanders, with the remaining 10 % an exciting international mix that includes; Australian, French, Tongan, Filipino, Polish, Samoan, Niuean, Japanese, English, Spanish, Chilean, South African, African, Chinese and American.

We are truly a school with an international flavour that is proud of who we are and what we offer. Please take time to explore our website, visit us on Facebook and feel free to contact us at any time.

Kia Manuia (Best wishes or good luck)
