Melvindale High School Reviews
As a senior ready to graduate, I can say that I'm absolutely grateful to have attended such a diverse and multicultural school. Melvindale has taught me the essentials needed to work in future work environments such as understanding the perspectives of others from different backgrounds and functioning in a multiethnic environment. I wouldn't change a thing about Melvindale other than the size as more students are coming into our loving community. The love for my school and community is incomparable as it is the one that presented me the love that I spread today!
I love the diversity of MHS. The students range from Arabic, Latinx, African American; LGBTQ+ and it was the first school I went to where minorities were the majority. I adored our diversity club, through it I was exposed to various cultures- even trying sushi for the first time and visiting several libraries. I participated in Youth in Government where I got the chance to interact with various people from different parts of Michigan and make legislation. I was able to participate in volunteering to take a less privileged child to Wal-Mart and to help them pick a Christmas gift. It was a beautiful experience. The teachers there are passionate and caring. I was in Drama Club as well and our shows were always stellar.
I was a student at Melvindale High School (2012-2016), I fell in love with the sense of community you felt there. We were all family, regardless of color, religion or background we all supported each other in our academics and extra curricular activities. There is always room for improvement, personally I believe it is important to recognize all teams ( girls and boys team), more specifically the girls soccer team. Another thing would be offering more scholarships to graduating seniors, every scholarship is very significant once you're in college.
