Melba High School covers all of the essential needs a Student could have for all areas of academic life. Ever since transferring to this school from out of state as a Sophomore I have been thoroughly impressed. I graduated in 2016, now my younger siblings attend Melba High School. The high standards set for the students have not been compromised. Overall this school cannot be beat!

Melba High School gave me a learning environment that enabled me to learn as much as I could. I learned that I have a passion for agriculture through the Melba FFA program and being in the rural community of Melba. I met life-long friends that also set their academics as a priority. A perk of Melba High School is the community support that you witness everyday. The school will sometimes raise money for people in the community that need the assistance. Melba High School provided me an exceptional education.
The teachers at my school are great, although not always perfect and the most controlling but they do try. Teaching is a tough job! They are preparing the future scientists, engineers, business people, bankers, and even teachers. It is one of the greatest things to do and share knowledge to others. The teachers at Melba High School are influential and helpful, trying their best to teach what they know and exceed the learning standards and achievement scores.
