About this school

The vision of Melrose Leadership Academy is to partner with families, community members, and students to create an environment that enables students to be bilingual, creative, thoughtful, and self-motivated learners. We nurture a culture of mutual respect and multiculturalism, where dialogue among students and adults is central to learning. Melrose Leadership Academy is a place where students exercise their curiosity, their voice, make meaningful choices, challenge themselves and each other academically, and where students develop their sense of responsibility to transform our school, community, and the world. During the 2012-13 school year, we will serve grades K-3 in our dual immersion program and 6th-8th graders in our middle school program. Our middle school students participate in an extended day that includes arts and athletics. We have an after school program that serves our primary grades. All students present their work during our EXPO's twice a year, which include academic and artistic work. In addition, 8th graders present their portfolio of work as part of their promotion requirements.
