Mentone Girls' Secondary College

Mentone VIC, Melbourne Southern Suburbs & Western Port

Where every girl from everywhere experiences success.  

Mentone Girls’ Secondary College (MGSC) is an exemplary government school with a thriving educational community. Our students travel from over 45 postcodes to attend our college. We offer a broad range of STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) and have a highly regarded humanities and arts program within the school. We have a comprehensive sport and aerobics program with many teams competing at state level.

MGSC has a rich tradition of innovation in teaching and learning and strives to ensure that every student achieves their personal best. We value respect, compassion, independence and tolerance and provide opportunities for students to contribute to local and global communities through our curriculum and co-curricular programs. We promote resilience and value perseverance and hard work. 

Mentone Girls’ Secondary College offers an Enhancement Program for girls who seek a greater academic challenge. The Enhancement Program runs from Years 7 to 9 and provides students with the opportunity to learn through higher-order thinking, inquiry and rich tasks as part of an enhanced curriculum in English, Mathematics, Humanities and Science. Rather than accelerating or compacting curriculum, students in the Enhancement Program work on more complex tasks and will learn topics to a greater depth and breadth. Students are able to access VCE studies in Year 10. 

Our music program offers students an opportunity to join a band in Year 7 and 8 or participate in a broad range of instrumental music classes, ensembles and bands in our dedicated Performing Arts Centre. As a school with a rich history of educating young women to take their place in a globalised world, our dedicated teachers are always seeking to innovate the curriculum and remain at the forefront of educational theory and practice. We are committed to providing an environment that nurtures the mind, body and spirit.

As the only government girls’ school in the south-eastern suburbs, we have an important role to play in the education of young women so that they reach their full potential. The school you choose has the potential to influence how your daughter sees herself now and into the future. The question is, do you want your daughter to challenge cultural norms or merely follow them? Become part of our great tradition that is MGSC so that your daughter can make her mark in this globalised world.
