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!

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.
Our administrative staff does a good job with dealing with kids that often are so called "troublemakers." If a student constantly makes poor decisions, they get expelled and are forced to go to ALC. This allows for a safer and more comfortable environment for me and the rest of the students. Dress code is good in the sense that there is a little leanacy, but also some order. Attendance isn't a major problem. Overall they do a fine job with the school.
