About the Program
Melville Senior High School’s Gifted and Talented Selective Entrance Program is an academic program where selected students study an extended and enriched curriculum of Mathematics, Science, Humanities and English (MESH) together as a unified group from Years 7-10. This model provides a successful environment that encourages teamwork, motivation and engagement among Melville SHS’s Gifted and Talented students.
In addition, Melville SHS’s Gifted and Talented program provides opportunities outside the classroom that engage with universities, organisations, and competitions. Melville SHS Gifted and Talented students are challenged to work to their full capacity, while encouraged to experiment and use concepts that drive ‘out of the box thinking’ and not be afraid to make mistakes.
In Years 11 and 12, Gifted and Talented students’ progress is tracked and monitored while opportunities and engagement with an array of universities are provided that prepare them for their chosen pathway after high school.
