Default Private Boys Schools in Auckland

Hi, my friend is looking for a private boys school (for boarders) in Auckland. If possible with particular emphasis on music/arts. Any recommendations? Thank you.

Most of those aren't private I think, shouldn't Auckland Boys Grammar be on there or has that dropped substantially? (or is it a political statement by Metro)

Edit - so after further research that list is merely one reporters opinion, and has left off the best boys schools that achieve the best academic results - Kins College, Macleans and Auckland Boys Grammar.

didn't look to deeply into it, just thought it was something the the OP could use as a tool to research some of the schools listed.
It wasn't meant to mislead anyone, next time I'll not bother.
