From attending the Melrose Public School system for over 12 years and currently employed at one of the schools, I would say that one can definitely receive a good education here. They recently redid the library in the high school, which was beneficial to the students they offer a vast amount of AP classes, allowing students to find their interests.
Melrose Public Schools has given me so many opportunities to take AP classes, pursue amazing extracurriculars (like orchestra and cross country), and has INCREDIBLE teachers who genuinely care about the students both inside and outside the classroom. Despite this, I wish there were more opportunities to take more computer science classes and practical classes like home economics and personal finances to prepare for life outside school.
