Often referred to as 'The Grammar Way', Auckland Grammar School sets its standards very high, demanding excellence across all aspects of daily life.
While providing young men with a rigorous education, each young man in turn is expected to pursue excellence in acquiring knowledge and skills while embracing the School's values.
These values are core to upholding the School's position and vision of pre-eminence in boys' secondary education. They are integrity, excellence, respect, courage, pride, commitment and humility.
Through the teaching and practise of said values, we hope that students will develop valuable qualities that they can use once they leave Grammar, including self-discipline, resourcefulness, adaptability, creativity, honesty, courtesy, self-reliance, pride in personal appearance and public spirit. The aim is to use these virtues for the good of the School and the community.
Grammar will promote all-round excellence in academic, sporting and cultural pursuits, encouraging each young man to recognise and develop his individual potential and gain pride and satisfaction through setting demanding personal goals while striving to attain them.
