Mentone Grammar offers a unique education model, the best of both worlds — “Together-Apart-Together”, reflecting the developmental needs of students: co-educational ELC to Year 4; separate classes for boys and girls in Years 5 to 9; and co-educational Years 10 to 12. The Early and Primary Years program provides a stimulating start to education, promoting solid grounding in literacy and numeracy. The Middle Years program provides increasing opportunity to develop higher-order thinking skills and hands-on project opportunities in preparation for the senior years. The Greenways Year 9 program aims to provide a relevant and flexible learning culture that engages the modern learner, while expertise in particular subject areas is a hallmark of the learning experience in the SeniorSchool.

Facilities: Outstanding facilities include a multi-court Sports and Function Centre (incorporating a function centre and cafeteria run by a leading caterer). Flexible learning spaces include glass-walled classrooms; state-of-the-art science facility, a new Junior School and discovery garden; information technology laboratories including a multimedia suite; an arts centre with drama, dance and ceramics facilities; university-style library with extended opening hours; Year 7 Learning Centre; Year 9 Greenways campus onsite; indoor aquatic centre and outdoor solar-heated pool; gymnasiums; tennis and basketball courts and cricket nets. This is complemented by 17 hectares of playing fields nearby and an outdoor education and accommodation facility on the beach at Shoreham, on the MorningtonPeninsula.

Curriculum: A seamless curriculum from ELC to Year 12 incorporates a broad range of subjects and experiences, culminating in extensive VCE and VET subject selections. Although an academically focused school, the differentiated curriculum provides all students with the opportunity to be their
best with access to enrichment,
acceleration and support programs, with some university subjects taught on campus for those who qualify.

Sport: Known for specialised coaching and a wide offering, Mentone’s sports include swimming, tennis, netball, cricket, football, basketball, athletics, cross-country, sailing, badminton, hockey, soccer, softball, table tennis, rugby, touch rugby and volleyball.

Extra-curricular activities: The extensive offering includes orchestra, bands, choirs, ensembles, theatre productions, aerobics, rock climbing, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, community service, triathlon, surfing, lifesaving, golf, squash, snow sports, water polo, woodwork, photography, painting, outdoor education, leadership courses, chess, cadets, Tournament of Minds, public speaking and debating, art show, extensive camps and learning journeys program including Year 7 Central Australia/Indigenous learning journey, Year 8 International Learning Journey, international student exchange and World Challenge.

Student welfare programs: Each student belongs to one of eight houses (the backbone of the pastoral care system) and is assigned a mentor who monitors performance and wellbeing. This system provides continuity and familiarity for students as they progress through the school whilst promoting the development of friendships and community connectedness.
