Mentone Girls. Remarkable Women.™

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.

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.

We empower young women through the life-changing gift of a high-quality, contemporary education. Our students regularly win prizes for sporting and artistic endeavour, and attain a high level of academic achievement as measured by key markers including NAPLAN (National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy), VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) and ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Ranking) scores. These results are a reflection of the hard work put in by students and their teachers over many years in all critical areas of learning. We are particularly delighted when students achieve or surpass their personal expectations which are not always reflected in a test or ATAR score. Our results are particularly pleasing considering we are a non-selective entry school and welcome students of all talents and abilities.

Through our personalised approach to learning, combined with our expertise in the education of girls, we help students build their self-confidence, achieve excellence and make a difference – these are the results that matter most.
