At Mentone Girls’ Grammar School, we are experts in girls’ education. We understand how girls think, learn and interact. Our curriculum is specifically designed to engage girls at each age and stage from the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 12. As an open-entry school, we accept students of all talents and abilities, faiths and cultures. We are consistently ranked among the top schools in Melbourne and our students regularly win prizes for sporting, artistic and academic endeavour. We also have an impressive track record of VCE success and university entry. This is why since 1899 generations of students, staff and parents have been proud to be part of our vibrant learning community.
Our beautiful beachfront location has inspired our WAVES priorities. These key principles guide the way we meet the particular learning needs of girls by contributing to their Wellbeing, Achievement, positive Values, Enterprising nature and Success. These priorities contribute to the unique culture and success of our School, as well as our personalised approach to learning.
Our distinctive style of education provides an environment which explicitly aims to develop an enterprising mindset, coupled with critical 21st century skills and attributes. Our aim is to develop digitally-literate, financially-savvy, innovative and flexible young women who can navigate the complex careers of the future with confidence. In increasingly new and different ways, we provide our students with important skills to manage their lives, make informed choices and take calculated risks, as well as the self-belief to manage challenges and maximise opportunities.
We are often benchmarked against some of the best schools in the world. Our curriculum challenges and inspires our students to learn, lead and live with a global focus. We have active international and language programs in Chinese, Japanese, French and German. The curriculum also includes a diverse range of curricular and co-curricular activities, coupled with advanced technologies including coding and virtual reality. Strong community alliances also provide many opportunities, from water skills with Mentone Life Saving Club, to quality competition through Girls Sport Victoria.
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.

Mentone Girls' Grammar is one of the finest schools for girls in Melbourne. Since 1899, generations of students, staff and parents have been proud to be a part of our community.
In addition to being a school with an outstanding track record of academic achievement, we know that our impact does not rest on academic results alone – in a complex, competitive world, they are not enough. Ours is more of a human endeavour, to wrestle with what young women face in their own personal and school lives and how to build, with them, the resilience to outline their own success criteria, define their leadership purpose and be able to make their own luck.
Our guiding principles underpin the key values of respect and learning, providing a strong foundation for building resilience, confidence, empathy, drive and determination. We encourage students to learn strategies on how to ‘bounce back’ from failure, cope with pressure and be resilient to change and disappointment. It is these life lessons that will have the greatest impact on how our students define and achieve their own criteria for success.
Another area of significant impact is our focus on enterprise education which has been a priority at the school for 10 years. Our Enterprise Academy is about driving our future-focussed and experiential enterprise learning, which we will continue to embed as inseparable from a Mentone Girls’ Grammar education, not independent of it. We will continue our efforts in innovative science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) initiatives, as well as financial intelligence, and critical work in intercultural understanding and global citizenship.
I look forward to welcoming you to our remarkable school.
