The school was very welcoming when I moved here and very helpful. Administration checked in regularly to see if I needed assistance. The academic courses offered here are phenomenal, and most importantly, school lunch is GOOD!

Melrose high school is a very welcoming and diverse institution of learning. My overall experience with the school was not as great as it could have been and if I had the option to go to a different school I would. I enjoyed most of my teachers but not always their teaching styles. There were no activities that were all taken seriously enough nor was I interested in so I ventured out to a dance studio and a half away.
Almost all of the teachers are great at their jobs. There are always a few that are bad but that is like every place. The high school level is when I noticed how much they do help and how they have great degrees that help us learn the college level classes which prepare us for college. Also I got done with a few of my general education classes as well. Melrose is a good school and I would not have changed anything about myself going there.
