Melrose High School is founded upon a tradition that encourages achievement in learning within a safe and friendly environment. There is a commitment to striving for excellence and to providing educational programs that meet high standards. The school aims to provide opportunities to help each student to develop intellectually, aesthetically, morally, emotionally, physically and socially.
In making choices, the staff seeks to retain the best traditions while ensuring that best practice and up-to-date teaching approaches are utilised. We offer a balanced curriculum, which provides a breadth of educational experience through a range of subjects, meeting the interests and needs of students for the twenty first century. The focus on learning is accompanied by an approach to discipline that values orderliness, a concern for the well being of all and compassion. The school has a code of behaviour that requires members of the school community to accept responsibility for their actions and to conduct themselves in a manner, which shows respect and consideration towards others.
There is an emphasis upon the development of a school spirit that promotes a positive school identity, an ethos of service to others and a respect for all who work and learn within the school community.
