Melrose High School Reviews
Melrose High School prepared me to be a productive and well-rounded citizen for the rest of my life. I will never, ever forget Mr. McLemore, who taught music, led the marching band, and equipped me with skills and experiences that have shaped my life. Twenty years later, I know hold two doctorates, have served in the military as an officer, and now, I am an educator abroad. Melrose reinforced pride and self-discipline and I am eternally grateful.
When I got to Melrose high school during my 10th grade year I did not want to be there at all. Meanwhile, I started to think to myself i have to make the best out of this being at a school i didn't want to be at became the most enjoyable moments of my high school experiences. Once I Join JR. R.O.T.C. I learn a lot about myself , and how to become a leader and lead a team.
My high school isn't the best because it a izone school meaning we have a extra hour because we had low test scores. We known to public as the wild children or the hood but we are not cause in this high school we treat each other like family. Even though the students don't get along with the administrative decisions it get blow over. I'm actually proud of being a Golden Wildcat because you can't find no other people that deeply care about your education and willing to fight tooth and nail. Also being a Melrose student have it up and downs but in return they teach that life isn't easy as it sound out to be or promising as it was. I know this is my last year of high school that I have been at for the longest for me and so far it going exceptional as should be because it Melrose the high school of Orange Mound.
