This is my first year with Melrose and I spend a lot of time there supporting my daughter as I have with every school she has attended. And from what I have seen thus far, there is much room for improvement toward academic stimulation and encouragement and parent involvement. I intend on doing my part help. Stay tuned for an update.

Melrose, although strong in tradition lacks in educational motivation. The school and community rallies behind sporting events but do not seem to get involve in the education process. Melrose does have some great teachers but they are unable to have the impact needed because their hands are tied through all the red tape.

Melrose needs to be a fresh start school. Meaning the entire faculty needs to change. The principal has been there forever and the school isn't serving the best interest of the kids. Its sinful to have one of the top teams every year but not send your seniors to college.

As a graduate of Melrose High School, I feel the test scores were poor then and are worse now. Most of these kids aren't being prepped for college or a life after high school. They are not receiving what they need to succeed in the world. I feel the principal has served his term since he has been the principal for the last 25 years or so. A new principal is desperately needed. The school needs to drastically change its goals and raise the bar of excellence to bring these minority kids up to par. Most, not all, have low percentile ACT scores and can barely graduate from community college.

This is a great school. The teachers care about the students. The test scores were high when I attented it and the scores are still high! The principal is doing an amazing job with this Melrose. *(Golden Wild Cats)*
