A horrible place not at all friendly. It’s very impersonal and it was a miserable and unhappy experience. Some teachers were nice but were interested only in certain students. Basically it’s an environment of privilege and nepotism, where accountability is absent and meritocracy an alien concept. I have lots of friends from outside MLC who have had a much more positive experience. It’s run like a business not a school and even though I left 2 years ago the place still sends shivers down my spine. Don’t send your daughters here there are much better schools.

MLC is a toxic environment steeped in cronyism, for those on the outside you’re anonymous amongst the 3,000 plus students. The school doesn’t live up to the advertising and hype, student wellbeing is non-existent, in fact they reward the “outgoing” bullies with leadership roles and discourage individuals more deserving. A majority of staff present as disingenuous and a couple in positions of some authority have an arrogant, dismissive and dictatorial attitude. There is a huge turnover in staff and although a few good teachers mostly they weren’t very impressive. In VCE my daughter was given two teachers who were new to teaching VCE and one new to the school. My only regret is that I didn’t move her from the school after Year 8 and saved her from feeling totally disheartened. I’m sure those with previous associations with the school will have a more positive experience but for our family it was a different story. I would not recommend MLC for the cost there are much better options.

Although I graduated just about 10 years ago from today, this school gives me nightmares all the time. It's as clear as yesterday and unfortunately no compensation can replace "what once my childhood" was here. The junior school was fine with the teachers, so far as I remember it. The teachers looked after me, especially in the specialist units. Just the girls were not that well taught in proper respect and attitude towards different people from an early age. My happy childhood completely ended at 10 years old.
From Year 7 onwards (high school), it was a nightmare - teachers did not help out girls being bullied. In my case, because I was different from everyone else, I was shunned which made me feel very depressed. Still remember teacher asking if I actually had any friends to hang out with and I said no, and they said 'You must have' and kept saying 'No'. They refused to help me out on that basis and the counsellors too. I was always lonely at lunchtime feeling depressed because I was just a "number" to this school, and not treated as a proper teenager or helped at all because I had special needs. Despite not having a lot of choices in academia (I was not very good to be honest!) in the high school, it was the only thing I enjoyed out of my childhood.
Some of the subjects were not great like history (should have been world history), computer sciences (not offered back in the early 2000s), religion (which was taught until Y12) so I self-taught myself how to do some of these things.
To be honest, the school academia was actually very poor compared to schools in the UK or NZ and yet they want good advertising, promotion and image when in reality, the school acutally sucks.
I got bullied very severely in the high school and justice has never been served to me for the damages that they did on my mental health and wellbeing.
If there was another school with a mainstream with a specialist support unit available, I would definitely go to that one. Unfortunately people are more ignorant.
