Mentone Girls’ Grammar is one of the finest girls’ schools in Melbourne with the best results on the Bay.  As a non-selective entry school, it welcomes students of all talents and abilities with classes from Kindergarten to Year 12. Although the school is based on Anglican traditions, the student population boasts many faiths and cultures. Mentone Girls’ Grammar believes every girl is remarkable in her own way and so values each individual and works to foster self-confidence, independence and achievement.

Facilities: Impressive facilities include a dedicated VCE Senior College, purpose-built Early Learning Centre and a specialised Junior School with state-of-the-art auditory-assisted classrooms. The Creative Learning Centre for Years 7 and 8 incorporates an advanced Media Design Suite that enables all students to undertake a wide range of creative media and design projects, from film and television production (including using a green screen), to web design, animation and industrial design. Facilities also include the Global Learning Centre for Years 9 and 10, the Wellbeing Centre which houses the school nurse and school psychologist, as well as an extensive fitness gym and mind-body studio.  The school also features a state-of-the-art Food and Nutrition Centre, a music school with concert room and practice studios, visual arts centre, science laboratories, gymnasium, sporting oval, fitness gym, swimming pool, tennis, netball and basketball courts, library, audio-visual lecture theatre and drama and dance studios. Intranet and extensive library resources are accessible from home via remote access. The school is well supported with a private bus service and close proximity to public transport.

Curriculum: The holistic education grows from the inquiry-based learning of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP) in the Early Learning Centre and Junior School, to the wide choice of subjects offered in the award-winning VCE College. The curriculum includes debating, dance, drama, music, visual arts, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, volunteering, leadership training and a formal careers program, all within a technology-rich environment. Strong community alliances provide many opportunities, from water skills with Mentone Life Saving Club to quality competition through Girls Sport Victoria. The school has active international and language programs and welcomes international students to enhance cultural diversity and promote a global outlook.
