At Mentone Girls' Grammar, we are recognised for our curriculum support of gifted and talented students. We do this with a differentiated approach to subjects within the classroom and through our innovative SAIL (Supporting Advanced and Independent Learners) Program.
The singular objective of SAIL is to recognise, promote and advance the education of students who possess very high intellectual ability in the supportive and structured environment of the School.
The intellectual, social and emotional needs of gifted students are identified and supported throughout their schooling with specialist subjects, subject and level acceleration and mentoring opportunities. SAIL programs exist in Mathematics, Philosophy, Japanese, Science, Music and other subject offerings dependent on year levels and students.
We also provide a team of experienced Learning Enhancement staff to help students with their individual learning needs, whether it is for extra support or extension. The support can occur alongside the classroom program explicitly teaching skills and understanding to enhance students’ ability. With a classroom environment that capitalises on girls’ language-related strengths and caters for their preference for verbal and interactive instruction, all our young learners can be a step ahead in their education.
