OneSchool Global Palmerston North Campus is part of a global private primary/secondary school - OneSchool Global. The school has 9,500+ students globally across 20 different countries. There is 1500+ students at 17 campuses around New Zealand.

The Palmerston North campus was formally in Kelvin Grove, where is had been since the campus opened in the mid-2000's.

This interior of this modern state-of-the-art learning centre was designed by Unispace, and construction of the 2,200+ square meter building started in mid-2017. This main campus building was the first stage of the project, with the separate multi-purpose gymnasium building to follow later.

The building is split into several areas, with junior students at one end; an admin area, commercial kitchen, and amenities in the centre; senior students at the other end; and intermediate students on a large central mezzanine. Each of the teaching areas are comprised of large open spaces and various smaller studios.

The precast panels featured a raw board-form woodgrain texture, including exposed interior panels surrounding the central lift shaft.
