Preshil, or The Margaret Lyttle Memorial School, is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational, Progressive, school located in Kew, an eastern suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. There are two campuses at Preshill, Preshil (Junior Campus) and Preshil (Senior Campus).

Founded in the early 1930s by Margaret J. R. Lyttle. Preshil states that it "aims to fit itself to the needs of the child rather than forcing the child to fit into the needs of the school". At Preshil, students work at their level of cognitive and emotional development. Preshil offers classes for students from Pre-School to Year 12 (Victorian Certificate of Education).
