    My daughter has attended Melrose for kindergarten and now first grade. She has been challenged and loved. She has blossomed into an excellent reader and loves going to school! The teachers and principal are loving caring professionals who strive for excellence. My daughter's favorite class is PE- the teacher makes it so much fun (even without a gym!) We have had a wonderful experience and I would recommend Melrose to anyone!! Thanks Melrose! Allison's Mom
