Melbourne High School is the only selective State School in Victoria for boys only in Years 9–12. The School continues to maintain its standing as one of the finest schools in Australia and develops the finest thinkers and leaders in Australia.
Melbourne High School traces its history back to 1854 and the establishment of the National Model School. In 1905, the School became the Continuation School and therefore proclaimed itself as the first state secondary school in Victoria. It is a statewide provider of broad academic education for boys in Years 9 to 12. The School has 1365 students, with approximately 340 students in each of four-year levels - year 9, year 10, year 11 and year 12. Admission to the School is by competitive examination with a small discretionary factor.
A supplementary intake also takes place in Years 10, 11 and 12. Students are drawn from a very wide cultural and socio-economic background and come largely from the greater metropolitan area of Melbourne and inner country locations. It is this ongoing dynamic cultural mix that has remained a cornerstone of the School's success.
Melbourne High School is committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment in which students can reach their full educational potential in a positive school culture that engages and supports them in their learning. Student well-being and student learning outcomes are inextricably linked, and MHS aims to promote an understanding of this link in both the School environment and in the classroom. It is recognized that all teachers are vital sources of support and are determinant in the success of their students.
Steeped in history, Melbourne High School is one of the popular school in the South Yarra area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
