The North Shore offers excellence in education from pre-school to tertiary. It has 42 state primary schools, eight intermediates, eight state secondary schools, eight state integrated schools and five registered independent (private) schools.

Just under 85% percent of these have a government decile rating of nine or ten - the highest proportion of high-decile rating schools in New Zealand.
