The teachers at Melrose are great at making the children feel cared about and take a real interest in the students.

My children no longer go to Melrose Park. Although the short time they where there the teachers and staff did leave a very good impression. They are very attentive as to who is entering the school grounds. You might make it to the office before some one will ask you where your going and why havent you been to the office to sign in. Drop off in the mornings is nice also. there is a school staff member there to open the door for your child and to escourt them to the entrance gate I was never worried about leaving them. The teachers seamed to me to be knowlageable and my children loved them. They have a very good program in place as far as getting info to me 'The Dad' about their school work and home work so I can also keep track of what is supposed to be done.

There needs to be more security when someone goes into the office to check out a child. I went into the office to check my child out & the front office had never seen me before, & they just asked me the name of the student I was picking up. They did not ask me who I was, or to see my id. I was very disappointed.

This is a fabulous school which supports student involvement through reading nights, math bees, spelling bees, plays, speeches, science projects, and many more. I am grateful for the wonderful teachers my children have.

Instead of the National Anthem, they've elected a contemporary Christian song as their patriotic song. They hold Christian prayers at PTO and other school events. They seem to be more focused on bringing their religion into the school than they are giving the children a good secular education. My child has been told she's going to burn in hell for not believing in their god. When asked why the other children have treated her this way she informed me that it's been her teachers. I was told we do not have to participate in such activities that involved their dogma. Now we're told that our children have been tardy as well as nonparticipant in school activities. They've a vague definition of not having to participate and make it impossible to do so when we would rather go to church for religion.
