Auckland Seventh-day Adventist High School (ASDAH) is a secondary school (years 9–13) in Mangere suburb of Manukau city, Auckland Region, New Zealand. It is owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

It is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system.[3][4][5] [6]


In the 2007 ERO report, it was recommended that the Secretary for Education intervene in order to bring about improvements to school management and governance, with particular reference to improving the management of the curriculum, personnel, and the provision of a safe environment. A Limited Statutory Manager was appointed in August 2008 to work with the board to address these issues.[7]

The largest ethnic group is Tongan (28%) followed by Cook Island Maori (22%).[7]


Achievement data for National Certificate of Educational Achievement from 2003–2007 indicate that at Levels 1, 2 and 3 was above the averages for schools of a similar socio-economic decile. Achievement in literacy and numeracy has improved, but school results are still below national averages[7]
