The Melrose School District has modern, well-maintained facilities that provide an excellent environment for a wide variety of educational programs to be provided. The School District has updated its facilities during the 1990’s, with the building of a new Elementary School attachment to the Middle/High School, as well as adding a new gymnasium, theater, and classroom additions to the Middle/High School Building. The District also supported the addition of a new cafeteria attachment to the Middle/High School in 2002. All of these recent facility additions have helped tremendously in enlarging student program opportunities.
