While there were many opportunities to lead and achieve at MGC (participating in leadership roles and sports teams throughout middle school and senior school), I was disappointed by the quality of staff teaching VCE and the way MGC handled the countless times that I and many others in my cohort were bullied emotionally and socially. My mum approached staff about this and her claims were not taken seriously. I also had an interest in joining the rowing team but at the time was criticised and ostracised by fellow students in my cohort for trying out. I didn't join in the end. The teaching staff in year 12 were under the pump In my year, one teacher took on the role of year 12 coordinator, 3/4 maths methods and 3/4 chemistry. Completely overloaded and it showed in his quality of teaching. Their classes didn't make sense and when I asked for clarification or flexibility in my learning I was met with hostility and threatened with suspension. I was a model student throughout my schooling (not a single detention), so this type of consequence was completely out of line. Having spoken with teachers after graduation, it still remains true that teachers are asked to take on too much without appropriate and timely consideration of their well being. To compensate for poor VCE support, I attended another 2 hours per subject of tutoring outside of school. As a previous comment suggested, if you want to do well at MGC you have to work for it - but don't expect support if you're struggling. Lastly, I agree with a previous comment that the school is very much focused on image and rules rather than student and staff development and progression. If I had children I would not enrol them at this school.

My daughter's education at MGC continues to be let down by poor staff, poor management and poor decisions. Counselling promised to Year 8s to inform their Yr 9 electives choices was promised, but never given (these choices can have long-term repercussions at MGC); 14 yr olds were shown an 'M' rated film at the beginning of the year which featured prostitution, abuse, depression and suicide; a 'Smiling Minds' in-class wellbeing program was heavily promoted but never delivered to students; dates for upcoming Maths tests are not posted on the digital noticeboard, alongside other due dates, as a matter of policy; a Yr 9 Science text was never assigned (the Principal belatedly suggested a 'non-compulsory' text for further reading); prospective VCE students sat through a troubling account of depression and anorexia by a former graduate at the information night. MGC fails its students in educational care.

Melbourne Girls' College used to be such a great school. It only started getting shocking when Ms. Karen Money stepped in as the new principle. MGC now only cares about their uniform rules and the way people see the school rather than education. Some of the girls have their skirts a little above the recommended length and a few teachers said to them that they look slutty. Also my daughter was wearing the correct uniform with a school jumper after school hours and was walking to the tram on the road and a teacher grabbed her and pulled her off to tell her that she couldn't catch the tram unless she put her blazer on. My daughter was hot, and had to wait 10 mins for another tram to arrive. Also they've made each class longer which makes students not work and learn as much because its so overwhelming. Also a lot of the new teachers Karen Money has employed are BAD. Rude, don't care about students, think they're better than everyone. You have to have passion and inspire students. There are many more examples that shows that the school is now a wreck but that would take pages to write it all.
I'm upset to say this all because my other daughter who graduated while Ms. Crowe was the principal had a wonderful high school experience. My other daughter however, has not.
