Vanguard Military School is a charter school that Labour and the Greens want to close down.
It’s students come from some of the most disadvantaged backgrounds, and were often failing in other schools.
Here’s their 2015 NCEA results.
- NCEA Level 1 – 93.2% vs 83.7% NZ average
- NCEA Level 2 – 100.0% vs 87.4% NZ average
- NCEA Level 3 – 93.3% vs 81.3% NZ average
- NCEA Level 1 Maori students – 95.2% vs 73.0% NZ average
Maori and Pasifika students at Vanguard are achieving 20% better than the national average.
There are already 160 enrolments for 2016. Hopefully they will not be closed down by a change of Government in 2017.
