The Farm Cove Intermediate School community strives to 'Reach Out' and work collaboratively across the school, within the wider community and as global citizens.  Our students are empowered as learners.  They are provided with opportunities to develop academically, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  Their learning comes to life as they are engaged in authentic inquiry based experiences that promote the attitudes which we value.  Our values include friendliness, cooperation, integrity, respect, enthusiasm and persistence.

Equitable, caring and interactive learning environments challenge students.  Teachers are involved in on-going effective professional learning development enabling students to be confident, happy, connected and reflective learners.  There is a shared understanding of the Treaty of Waitangi and cultural diversity is celebrated.

Our vision extends to the wider community including parents and whanau.  We 'Reach Out' to enjoy learning together and celebrate our success.
