am i dont think this school is good Granada elementary is a very good school and the principle is great
Melrose MST Magnet has been the BEST school I have ever went to. I have moved between many schools to see which one was the best, and I found my self to say Melrose MST Magnet is. My teachers here have helped me alot. Just for them, now I am at a really good middle school, John Burroughs. I will always be thankful to them; and not to forget, the principal really made this school wonderful. To her interest and hardwork, I had my best years there, even by being the General Maneger of the Student Store.
This school is a perfect fit for our family. The principal is incredible as is our son's kindergarten teacher. Melrose sets the bar high for all of its students, and as a result the children are learning and achieving at a higher level.
AWESOME! The principal firstly is an epitome of poise, intelligence and educator. She leads by example but with much gentle and full of heart kind of leadership. The teachers are thus also inspired despite the challenges in their profession. And so kudos to the parents who are tirelessly present to support whatever the school needs in manpower. The students are very lucky. And because they see the great dynamics among all their educators, staff and parents, the children are motivated to learn and to know even beyond the four walls of their classrooms. There is just so much positive energy surrounding the campus. We love it like it is our second home. GO STARRS!
Its an amazing school with excellent teachers and staff. A real family feel. It was hard with all the budget cuts but the parents and staff pulled together and made a great year for all the kids. My son loves his school.
There are some exceptional LAUSD schools--those which even the best private shcools compete ; this is one of them. All public schools should be this great! We love this school.
The perfect public school: dedicated, intelligent, understanding, compassionate, strict, organized teachers; a superior principal who is a true advocate for public education; great students; great parent community. This school exceeds all expectations. All schools should be this great.
We drive our daughter for over 30 min one way each morning just so she can attend this school, it is absolutely amazing. The dedication from parents as well as from students and staff to make it the best place ever, is exceptional and much appreciated.
Our school just became a Math/Science/Technology Magnet School and had the single largest one-year API increase in California ever!
Amazing, invested, principal/leadership. Amazing science/math/technology magnet - so glad we moved here last year!!!! The jump from a 4 to an 8 shows that the school's magnet program is a success!
I have worked at several schools and worked with many teachers. The staff at Melrose are among the most dedicated, hard-working educators whose focus is not only academic excellence but character building to create outstanding citizens. This certainly includes Ms. "O"; a diligent and caring teacher whose high expectations has unleashed her students' potential.
The principal is passionate, the teachers and staff are committed, the students are eager and the parents are dedicated in making Melrose a well-rounded, leading school in the community. Melrose has the heart and spirit to accomplish this!
Melrose provides multiple opportunities for students, parents, and teachers to grow and learn. There are so many fun, intellectually stimulating, and artistic programs to do.
I have the honor of serving as the principal of a school community which includes brilliant students, outstanding teachers, dedicated staff and passionate parents. I have seen such growth in our school. This growth is due to the hard work of all the aforementioned stakeholders.
The principal is incredible. Her leadership and passion make me want to be apart of Melrose Elementary.
My youngest friend (age 5) attends this school. He's a wonderful kid, very interested in reading, exploring the world around him and being kind to animals. I've met the parents of other students and they are all very involved and supportive. This school offers a place to learn both scholastic and social skills in a warm, caring environment. With a bunny!

Melrose is a growing school. Parents are getting more involved. The potential is there-great teachers, multi-cultural student body and caring parents.
I just have one thing to say.... We have a principle who really cares about our students.
