Melba High School Reviews
Rating 3.88 out of 5 42 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!
My experience at Melba High School was very good; I was able to be involved with numerous activies, including sports and leadership centered ones. The educators are very diligent in helping insure our success as students. The principle and vice principle are very engaged and present with the students as well as the teachers. Our guidance counselor is very supportive in helping with our success in our current academics and also in our endeavors for our future education plans and success.
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!
