Mentone Girls’ Grammar is one of the finest schools for girls in Melbourne, Australia, consistently ranked among the best schools in the State of Victoria. We have been providing a premium education for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12 since 1899, accepting students of all talents and abilities, faiths and cultures. The true measurement of our School’s worth lies in how well our students are taught and mentored; challenged and nurtured to be the kind of thoughtful, compassionate, creative, intelligent and moral leaders that the world needs right now. Because we’re a small school with a big history behind us, we’re in the enviable position of being able to create an intimate environment where every girl is known, seen and heard so that a strong sense of belonging, underpinned by high quality teaching and learning is a feature of their time with us. Our contemporary curriculum is specifically designed to engage girls at each age and stage in order to support their growth as happy, independent, confident and capable individuals. As an IB World School, we are often benchmarked against some of the best schools in the world. Our rich curriculum challenges and inspires our students to learn, lead and live with an international focus. We receive professional development in exceptional IB practice and work hard to implement teaching and learning practices that deliver an outstanding educational experience for our students.
We aim to give our students an international education, one which will empower them to, as global citizens, meet the challenges of their times. In the Junior School, at the heart of the Primary Years Programme (PYP) philosophy is a commitment to developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Every aspect of the curriculum is designed to engage students with these key concepts. We also have strong programs in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics), enterprise and financial literacy and align these initiatives within our Programme of Inquiry, delivered through an inquiry mode of instruction. In the Senior School, we provide four languages (French, German, Chinese & Japanese), as well as Arts/Humanities offerings that form a significant component of our global learning program ranging from Accounting and Economics to Business Management, Geography, History, Digital Technologies, Global Politics and Legal Studies. Mentone Girls’ Grammar 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.
