At Mentone Girls’ Grammar, we are experts in girls’ education. We understand how girls think, learn and interact. Our curriculum is specifically designed to engage girls at each age and stage from the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 12. As an open-entry school, we accept students of all talents and abilities, faiths and cultures. We are consistently ranked among the top schools in Melbourne and our students regularly win prizes for sporting, artistic and academic endeavour. We also have an impressive track record of VCE success and university entry. This is why since 1899 generations of students, staff and parents have been proud to be part of our vibrant learning community.
Our beautiful beachfront location has inspired our WAVES priorities. These key principles guide the way we meet the particular learning needs of girls by contributing to their Wellbeing, Achievement, positive Values, Enterprising nature and Success. These priorities contribute to the unique culture and success of our School, as well as our personalised approach to learning.
Our distinctive style of education provides an environment which explicitly aims to develop an enterprising mindset, coupled with critical 21st century skills and attributes. Our aim is to develop digitally-literate, financially-savvy, innovative and flexible young women who can navigate the complex careers of the future with confidence. In increasingly new and different ways, we provide our students with important skills to manage their lives, make informed choices and take calculated risks, as well as the self-belief to manage challenges and maximise opportunities.
We are often benchmarked against some of the best schools in the world and our proud of our Council of International Schools Accreditation. Our curriculum challenges and inspires our students to learn, lead and live with a global focus. We have active international and language programs in Chinese, Japanese, French and German. The curriculum also includes a diverse range of curricular and co-curricular activities, coupled with advanced technologies including coding and virtual reality. Strong community alliances also provide many opportunities, from water skills with Mentone Life Saving Club, to quality competition through Girls Sport Victoria. Mentone Girls’ Grammar is filled with staff and students who have passion, dedication and perseverance and take great pride and joy in seeing our students exceed their own expectations.
Our holistic education grows from the inquiry-based learning of the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) in our ELC and Junior School, to the wide choice of subjects offered in our award-winning VCE College. The curriculum includes an extensive program of visual and performing arts, debating, Duke of Edinburgh, leadership training and careers support.
Strong community alliances and sporting affiliations provide many opportunities, from water skills with Mentone Life Saving Club, to quality competition through Girls Sport Victoria.
