Mentone Girls’ Grammar is one of the finest schools in the bayside area, consistently ranked among the top schools in the State in key areas of literacy and numeracy. Since 1899, the School has specialised in educating girls from Kindergarten to Year 12; accepting students of all talents and abilities; providing a premium, contemporary education that values each individual and fosters creativity and self discovery. Not all independent schools are the same. We understand how girls think, learn and interact. Our curriculum is specifically designed to engage girls at each age and stage, to support the best possible learning outcomes. The School offers the advantages of a genuine girls only ELC to Year 12 and celebrates the achievement, leadership and personal development of young women. Set on a beautiful beachfront campus, Mentone Girls’ Grammar has an impressive range of resources, and purpose built facilities. Mentone girls of all ages are challenged and motivated to fulfil their potential and make a difference. The School is built on Anglican traditions, which together with innovative service programs, inspire social responsibility and environmental sustainability across the school community. A comprehensive WAVES personal development program promotes the Wellbeing, Achievement, positive Values, Enterprising nature and Success of women in society. The holistic education grows from the inquiry-based learning of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP), 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, volunteering, leadership training, and a comprehensive careers program, all in 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 with both Asian and European subject offerings, and welcomes international students to enhance cultural diversity and promote a global outlook. Mentone Girls’ Grammar School offers a personalised education, access to highly qualified staff, and exposure to many positive role models. Quality teaching, an inspired curriculum, small classes and a positive learning culture, have led to a long history of outstanding academic, sporting and artistic achievement. As a result, Mentone alumnae are represented in many and varied careers around the world from engineering, medicine, law, education and the arts to enterprising private business ventures.
