As a child, I learned, cooperated, got myself motivated and groomed under the best company of my best friends. I remember the first year love and wishes from my teachers. That is why I always regard my primary school life memories as the treasure for my life. i had a great time in high school , I have the best friends today and the learning experience that I got from my high school. The high school life memories are the invaluable part. I did a lot of blunders and mistakes. But thanks to my sincere friends and true teachers I was always rescued. That is how I learned from high school life the true meaning of cooperation and love.

I had a lot of shortcoming. I still remember how ignorant I was during my school days. My school life memories make me realize how important school life is for anyone. Had it not been, I would have surely missed many things in my life. I would not be having good friends, good knowledge, good experience and the good memories.

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!
Melvindale is a very good school. It may not be that popular, but this school really helps students with their future and all that. We have proud students. The teachers are really helpful to all the students. One thing they can focus on is providing more and more technology to those students who don't have much connection to technology.
