Melba High School Reviews
I loved Melba High School and all the opportunities provided. I was involved in everything from dance team to BPA. However, my school wasn't perfect. Although I loved Spanish class, I might have opted for a class on French or ASL had it been offered. Also, Melba didn't offer a lot for those interested in theatre, though there were plenty of extracurriculars, even aside from sports. There were also certification programs. Personally, I graduated as a Certified Nursing Assistant. At Melba, I was given a sound education in a fun environment. The student to teacher ratio provided only in small schools like Melba made it easy to talk to your teachers. We also had lots of school spirit, and tons of fun assemblies and activities for everyone. So, although Melba High School was lacking in a few areas, I'll gladly admit that I'm proud to be a Mustang!
I loved it at Melba! I mean, I did have a few teachers who were kind of weird, but all of them were very supportive and cared about students’ success. I grew a new appreciation for nearly every subject I took in my two years attending. I loved how small it is (the biggest graduating class as of yet has been 80 something-or-odd students, and I graduated with about 64). The environment was very good, and there were different groups of people, but they weren’t necessarily cliquey. Friend groups were interchangeable, which I thought was pretty cool. It was kind of funny, because many people who might be picked on at other schools were very much appreciated at Melba. We embrace the weird! I only gave it 4 stars because there was more swearing than I was used to, but I was used to 0-4 swear words a school year. Over all, I loved Melba!
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!
