Two fire trucks from the Woodville Volunteer Fire Brigade extinguished the blaze within half an hour, a Fire and Emergency New Zealand spokesperson said.
A Woodville School spokesperson said the car, which was a school lease car, appeared to have been parked beside the building and then set alight.
He said the corner room of the building that was left charred was being used as a storeroom, and wouldn't impact the return to school of children on Monday.
A rescue helicopter that landed at Woodville Racecourse at 3am had arrived for a medical event that was unrelated to the fire, he said.
