The Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School 2014-2015 School Improvement Plan was developed by the School Council in collaboration with the Principal. Initially developed in the spring of 2014, it was revised by the new School Site Council in the Fall of 2014 to reflect the most current student performance data and focus points of the new principal. The plan targets improvement in student performance and growth in ELA, math and science while also addressing improving communication, building a greater student voice and reviewing the overall programmatic aspects of the middle school . Many of the actions can be clearly reflected in individual teacher goals and educator plans. The members of the School Council worked diligently to create an environment of openness, collegiality, and respect for all participants.
MVMMS is the sole comprehensive three-year middle school in the city. It has an enrollment of just under 900 students and is serviced by nearly 100 faculty and staff.
The mission of Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School is to inspire, engage, and challenge all middle school students who are making critical and complex life choices at a key phase of their life and to enhance their healthy growth as lifelong learners, ethical and democratic citizens, and increasingly competent, self-sufficient young people who are optimistic about the future.
