Melcher-Dallas Elementary is a total failure. There is a major bullying problem and school officials will not acknowledge that there is a problem. They do not provide a safe environment. They punish the victim and reward the bully. If you can manage it, enroll your student in the Iowa Virtual Acadamy and have your student learn online classes AT HOME. I blame the superintendent, the principal and the teachers. They get a F minus. Stay away from this school at all cost. If you value the safety of your child, you will find an alternative school. They should be ashamed of themselves.
