Monte Cassino Girls High School is a Catholic boarding-school 7km south-east of Macheke in the Mashonaland East province of Zimbabwe. The school was built between two mountain ranges with its entrance coming in from the west side after crossing the Mucheke River.

The school was founded as part of the Catholic Mission at Monte Cassino in 1902. Like many mission schools in Zimbabwe, Monte Cassino was one of the first schools which provided education to Black African people. In the 1960s, the school's administration was taken over by the Precious Blood Sisters, most of whom were from Germany.

There are four houses at the school: Nightingale, Boeckenhoff, Pfanner and Kizito.
