Melbourne Senior High School Reviews

So far, it's been a terrific school. The teachers are actively involved in trying to help you pass, so long as you do your part on asking for missing assignments or tutoring. We recently had gotten back an event called "Powerhour", where everyone has an hour lunch and teachers have lunch during Powerhour A or Powerhour B, whichever Powerhour they have left is used for time with the students who come in to makeup missing assignments or for extra help. (i.e. A teacher has lunch during Powerhour B, they're helping students during Powerhour A). It's extremely helpful for those that ride the bus to and from school or for those that simply have no time before or after school to visit.

I enjoy how beautiful the Melbourne campus is. It's truly picturesque and is gorgeous. The academic options at my school are plentiful as well. It has many classes I have never heard of high schools having, like World Religions and Anthropology. Mel High also provides the opportunity for students to be duel enrolled and take virtual classes. The school is pretty safe as well. There are gates and admins always keeping an eye out for the students. The student body is made up of incredibly bright people and shows a lot of promise for their futures. Overall, it is a good school to attend. However, I am not fond of the way administrators handle business and how bad the school is at giving out announcements to the school. Some of the buildings also have subpar heating and cooling.
Melbourne High School is a very unique school. Within its very strict doors, and under its very strict guidance, there are teachers who care about their students. The teachers look at their students and try with all their hearts to help their students get ready for a college or a career. They want to help their students become better people and be better learners. While Mel High does lack in some areas, it does make up for those things with the mutual care between staff and student. I believe the people who have helped me, left me with the skills and life lessons that will guide into a better life.
