|I'm a secondary school student here. In the earlier years of high school, I was bullied by a group of "popular" girls. It damaged my self-esteem a little, although the next year I was placed in a much better class, where students actually cared about their grades.|
Overall, in my opinion it depends on your luck. If you're surrounded by ungrateful brats who don't care about education, your experience will most likely be more negative.
My experience with the teachers at this school is quite positive. They care about your learning and want the best for you. I'm not sure if it depends on your grades, as I do achieve quite well in studies.
I wouldn't discourage you from sending your daughter here. It'll teach her how to stand up for herself and develop a thick skin. I learnt that through my early years of high school and also figured out the importance of being yourself.
Yes, the dress code is quite strict.The peer pressure to break rules is there, which again, could teach your children the importance of standing up for themselves and knowing what's right or wrong.
I'd rate this school a 7/10.

|MLC is a good school, although the recent new building (only for year 7’s) has taken away what little sports grounds they had and they didn’t actually need more class rooms, the school has plenty. Some of the older buildings, the year 8 Cato building as an example, has a very limited air conditioning and gets extremely hot on some summer days.|

|There are positives at MLC, but there are also negatives. The opportunity to attend Marshmead and Banksia gave my daughter a well rounded school life experience that gave her confidence and more independence. However, the cliques and friendship groups were unhealthy and many girls were unhappy, the school focuses well on education but fails to care about, teach or encourage the values of getting along, inclusiveness & kindness. Also, the the focus on caring for the environment at Marshmead doesn’t carry over to the Kew campus, maybe instead of the exorbitant spending on advertising, they could put the money towards recycling bins, less waste and extending the current 2 year change over on laptops to reduce landfill. |
