Napier Boys' High School will receive Government-subsidised internal network upgrades in readiness for ultra-fast broadband.
Another 150 schools will be ready for the UFB rollout as the next stage of the School Network Upgrade Project is announced.
Napier MP Chris Tremain said the upgrade was part of the Ministry of Education's School Network Upgrade Project.
"This is great news for our local school. It's another step along the way to the Network for Learning, which will provide our schools with affordable, safe, ultra-fast internet access," he said.
"UFB is a game-changer for the way our kids learn. Faster internet will help our schools connect with the world, and prepare students for living and working in the 21st century."
The ministry's goal was to provide 97.7 per cent of schools with UFB access by 2016.
"Building a more competitive and productive economy is one of National's four key priorities, and making New Zealand schools some of the most connected in the world is an important part of this," he said.
Associate Minister of Education Craig Foss said that upgrade work on 150 schools would start by the end of the year.
