My experience has been amazing attending Melissa High School in Melissa, TX. To all new freshmen don't be scared. Join a sport; it's fun. Homework is to be expected. Most of all the classes are structured and test well. Our teachers show great leadership and always willing to help. I’ve always felt safe and comfortable at school. Our community supports all sports and youth organizations. Our Principals and administrators are well trained and resolve any and all matters professionally. My overall experience with Melissa High School was great and I made lots of memories. I highly recommend any families looking to move, to visit our school and community.
