Melissa High School Reviews
At Melissa High School, the staff, students, and overall community is welcoming with open arms. From the new school building to mega lunch, this school is the place to be! Many clubs and organiziations make the school diverse and the sports and extra-curriculars are as competetive as they could be. The teachers and administration at Melissa are defininetly setting the students up for success in college!
Melissa is a very educational and extra circular based school district. The community is wonderful when it comes to supporting our sports teams, theater groups, UIL groups, band, and even clubs. The teachers are kind, extremely good at teaching, and want to be involved in the student's education. The counselors at Melissa are some of the most under appreciated workers at Melissa. They are never too busy to sit down with students about anything; college, homework, family troubles, or even just students who just want to talk. And lastly, the most important people at the school, the students . The students at Melissa High School are known to be extremely respectful, loyal, and open to new friendships. Unlike other schools, Melissa's students make it their number one priority to interact and make new residents and students feel welcome.
Melissa High School has a great community vibe and strong sense of school pride! It is so encouraging to see students of all different walks of life supporting each other and pushing each other to do their best, and I get to see it every day. All the teachers are brilliant and really care about their students. Because of the small size, I have had the same English teacher for the past 3 years and she has been such an inspiration to me. I have lived in Melissa my entire life and have always attended Melissa schools and I have been so blessed by all of my teachers, principles, and classmates. Any student or faculty member would consider themselves blessed to be a part of the Melissa Independent School District
