13 Parent Reviews for Melrose High School

Walk through the halls of Melrose High School on an average day, and you'll see something that roughly resembles a prison. A lackluster student body is locked away in windowless classrooms of a building that no longer meets state regulatory codes with teachers who want to leave just as badly as their ...  Read more

Melrose High School might have been a good school at one time, but it is clearly a disgrace today. The new principal is an empty suit who cares more about boosting the school's reputation through public relations efforts, than about providing a quality education to the students enrolled there. Although ...  Read more

Apathy runs rampant among the administrative staff and most teachers at this school unless you have a child who is in AP or Honors classes. If you have a child of 'average' intelligence, despite how involved a parent(s) you may be in your child's education, you'll not get much support or help from ...  Read more

Great school. Good music and art programs. Plenty of afterschool sports, band and other programs. My children graduated from Melrose High School they enjoyed their high school years. Student graduates go on to college and are accepted by ivy leaque schools

I'm a firm believer that you get out of public schools what you send to public schools. There is no question that if a supportive family sends a student who values education to Melrose High that a fantastic education can be had in this enviornment. My daughter is proof. Her AP and Honors classes were ...  Read more

It has one of the best attendance records in the area and has great teachers. the after school activities are plentiful and the sports teams are some of the best in the league. The only bad part would be 2 hour ...  Read more

I've been attending this school for two and a half years and I agree with most of those who consider it a joke. A lot of classes are empty because students choose to skip and go out for a smoke or just go elsewhere for the rest of the day. There is often a shortage of help available so classes are herded ...  Read more

Mhs is a not the ideal learning enviornment, i agree totally with one of the past reviews stating 'the dean of students is a joke, and the principal lacks knowlegde on how to do his job'. New teachers are needed! new staff would also be a very big step in the right direction, the hall monitors seem to ...  Read more

Children have an opportunity to learn and participate in terrific programs to the extent of their and their parental interest. If your children are motivated, they have the opportunity to enjoy immense success at MHS.

This school is a joke. The principal and his administration are non-responsive and ineffective. While there a few excellent teachers, most seem to be burned out and ambivalent. The Dean of Students is a disgrace, completely unresponsive to parents. Cutting classes seems to be the norm at this school ...  Read more
