Melbourne High School is of historical, architectural and aesthetic significance to the State of Victoria.

It is historically significant due to its associations with such eminent educationalists as Frank Tate, who was instrumental in the drive for state secondary education in Victoria and in the founding of Melbourne High School.  

It is architecturally significant as a fine example of Collegiate Gothic architecture and is also a particularly distinctive example of the work produced by the Public Works Department in the 1920's.

It is of aesthetic significance for its design within the landscape which ensures prominence and vistas from the North and the West, and for its murals and stained glass windows designed by important Victorian artists Leonard Annois and Alan Sumner respectively in 1956.   

An ambitious program of buildings and facilities improvement is in place, amounting to approximately $10.5 million. This will ensure that the School can continue to provide a world class education for current and future generations of students.
