Melrose has an excellent Magnet program in effect. BUT, the school caters to the problem students in the school and leaves out the hardworking, ready to learn student. The school is lacking good leadership to hold parents and students accountable. My child was in Kindergarten and came home everyday of another student hurting him. It became so bad i eventually pulled him out early.

My child went to melrose for 4 yrs and I saw it go from an okay school to a lousy school in those 4 yrs. This year I moved my child and am having to catch her up on almost every subject. She was an honor roll student at Melrose. I wish I had moved her before now.

Both of my children have attended this school, My daughter did well the school was great however by the time my son started the school had started going downhill. It started going downhill when my daughter was in 5th grade, which was 3years ago. I have changed my sons school for this upcoming year. I would not recommend this school any longer!

MY children have all gone through Melrose and I must say that that, they have had some positive experiences as well negative ones. But overall i like the school. Because it doesnt matter where our children go they are going to be faced with challenges. Perfection is a matter of opinion. I thank the teachers and staff, for there hard work and dilligence in dealing with us as parents and our children. You don't know what teachers go through unless you've walked in there shoes.

I pulled my child out of Melrose and put him in private school. The best was not pulled out of my son there. He started k with enough knowledge to do first grade work. He was bored to tears and learned nothing all year. He stayed through 2nd grade and was not productive. Since the transfer he is challenged and progressing.

This school has an awesome journalism program. They utilize technology in more ways than just using computers. There is a morning news program that is produced, the foreign language department uses Video Teleconferencing daily. It is truly remarkable.

This school has been good for my child, but I feel as though there could be more potential. The PTA does not encourage people to be involved. There is much information which is not appropriately relayed to parents. I do not feel as though the children are kept as safe as they should be. There are many children who are disruptive in classes, which hinder the education of others.

From the principal and assistant principal, to the maintenance employees, everyone at this school takes pride in creating a safe and stimulating environment for the students. The smaller class sizes allow the teachers to work in small groups, addressing the learning levels of all of the children in their classes. The school has a great volunteer program and gives all the parents a chance to participate at some level. At Melrose, truly, everyone has pride in their work and they have fun doing it!

Melrose Elementary is a great place to have your children. They recently were named a National PTA School of Excellence for Parent Involvement, they have a very active PTA, they have a dedicated and involved (in every aswpect of the school) administrative staff, including a behaviour specialist. They offer journalism as an attractor, and actually publish a newspaper every term. My son went from marginal to Principal's list, and is now in the gifted program, my daughter will be tested for advanced studies in the fall.
