Mentone Girls' Grammar is one of the finest schools for girls in Melbourne. We accept girls of all talents and abilities and pride ourselves on being culturally diverse, welcoming students of all faiths and cultures. Quality teaching, small classes, and an inspired curriculum, set within technology rich, purpose built learning centres have led to our long history of outstanding achievement. We strongly believe that our ultimate advantage is the individual care and attention we give our students.
Since 1899, generations of students, staff and parents have been proud to be a part of our community. With a beautiful single campus, we offer the advantages of a seamless education from Kindergarten to Year 12. Our unique location by the beach provides a fresh and healthy educational environment and has inspired our WAVES priorities.
Mentone Girls. Remarkable Women.™
This statement has become a powerful message of pride and encouragement for our students and our community. We are a proudly Australian school, but one with a true global outlook. Our aim is to make a positive contribution to women in society by developing compassionate, connected, articulate young women who enjoy learning and have the confidence to succeed no matter where their journey takes them.
Our parents feel confident in entrusting their daughters to us as part of a very special community; staff feel engaged and encouraged to achieve the best for each and every girl; and most importantly, every student is given the confidence and support to achieve her best.
Not all independent schools are the same.
As you would expect, we offer all the advantages of a quality independent school, from excellent teaching and small classes in purpose built, technology-rich learning centres, to a wide range of subject choices and co-curricular opportunities. We provide our students with important skills to manage their lives, to make informed choices and take calculated risks, and the self-awareness and self-belief to deal with different challenges and pressures.
There is considerable research evidence to show that girls benefit from a quality all girls' environment, from academic success and personal interactions, to building self-confidence and active participation in many aspects of the curriculum. Stereotyping of subjects and careers is limited in girls' only schools, so girls can feel confident there are no impediments to their choices, whether they are in academia, sport, music or many other co-curricular areas. This also extends to their choices of career paths. All activities are open to girls: they participate, influence and lead for genuine achievement.
The energy that drives us to succeed vibrates around every corner. The School is filled with staff and students who have passion, dedication and perseverance. We have high expectations and take great pride and joy in exceeding them. Mentone Girls' Grammar is a place of friendship, of support, of enterprise and inspiration. It is a place of learning and wonder; and a place like no other. This is why we are the school of choice for girls' education. There is certainly something very special about our School and I very much look forward to welcoming you to this unique community.
