Mitcham Girls High School

Academic/STEM

The GifT Academic Program at Mitcham Girls High School aims to extend, challenge and support girls who are identified as being well ahead of their peers or who demonstrate excellence and talent in English and Humanities and/or Science and Mathematics.

The GifT Academic Program focuses on critical, creative and high order thinking skills.  Students are able to design their own learning experiences and to negotiate tasks.  Our specialist teachers have high level subject knowledge.  They provide educational opportunities which challenge and extend students’ learning in a safe and supportive environment.

At Mitcham Girls High School we ensure that students balance their academic studies with sporting, social and cultural activities.  For those of you who want to develop your gift, GifT Academic at Mitcham Girls High School is for you.
