Melrose High School Reviews
Melrose High School presented me with an exceptional high school experience because of the connections and passions I found while attending. Academically, I felt that MHS placed far too much pressure on students to take AP classes, even if they weren't the right fit for that student. Additionally, the expectations of teachers tended to be quite high, making class overwhelming. Aside from these academic flaws, however, I found great happiness in the other aspects of school. Through various clubs, I have made lifelong friends and found activities I'm passionate about, and the sense of community found especially in clubs and extracurriculars are what make Melrose High truly great.
Melrose High School provides what they can as a public school, to their students. There are a lot of teachers here who would like to help you succeed, and there are also a lot of teachers here who come to school and do nothing. There are also major opportunities for students for students going into STEM or the GEM pathway. A lot of the opportunities at Melrose are for independent students who are willing to take the step forward, it's important to keep that in mind because it is very easy for a student to fall behind.
My school is an hour, or two away depending on traffic, and is full of opportunities like clubs, and sports. The teachers are understanding for the most part, and the way of teaching is suiting to the majority. The school is predominately white, and leads to the judgement of minorities to be underlined, and bolded. There are staff in the building besides counselors that actually try to build a bond with the students rather than just give them their grade.
