Mitcham Girls High School is located in the beautiful suburb of Kingswood just 10minutes from the city centre. There is easy access by public transport and many buses stop outside the school.

The school is part of the Mitcham Council District, a lovely historic part of Adelaide, and is located within walking distance of a large shopping precinct. Girls choose to attend this school because they prefer to complete their education in a single sex
environment where they can achieve academic success and be afforded extensive leadership opportunities.
