I like Melbourne High School. For the location, it is a very good school. It certainly is not the worst school, but some improvements could be made. The food could could be better. The facilities are not the best, but they do work. The education level is good, but I wish they offered more classes and more challenging classes.

I had a fairly good experience while at Melbourne. It was convenient to have Ozarka College nearby. When I went though they changed teachers often. There was probably a new math teacher every year and sometimes another teacher would need replaced, like science or coaches. I feel that the school would be better with more consistency.
The teachers at my school are very knowledgeable and friendly. They are always there for students and are willing to help them in life with more than just homework. The teachers go above and beyond with everything that they do and are genuinely concerned about the well being of the students. The teachers are also very adaptable and will find the best way to teach each individual student and often times will stay after school to help teach students that are struggling in class. Overall the quality of the teachers at my school are beyond anything most others school could ever hope for.
