Maungawhau School is a primary school in the suburb of Mt Eden, Auckland, New Zealand. It caters for boys and girls from Year 1 to Year 6.
The site for the school was purchased from Joughin Farm and Manderville Estate in 1911. The first building was erected in 1912, while the first students were taught in 1913. Over the years, the school has expanded and grown which resulted in the further purchase of surrounding land. Several additional buildings have been added and existing buildings have been replaced or renovated.
