OUR VISION - To be a school where all students become life long learners

Kimihia School is situated on the east side of Huntly in a semi-rural setting. We are a strong community based school that began in 1897.

Kimihia, translated as "Go and Seek", is the school motto and our mission statement is "To provide a caring, stable environment and academic excellence while preparing students for life long learning."

All students at our school are encouraged, guided and supported to "Go and Seek" as we prepare them as 21st Century learners.
