Cierra Grover is an 8th grade student here at Melba High School. Cierra was chosen as a student of the month because of her excellent grades and remarkable attitude. Her nomination reads "Cierra is exceptional in so many ways! She is a hard working student who always gets her work done, and does it well. She is also a very kind girl. She never shirks at being partners with anyone, ever! She is happy to be at school, I think she would be happy anywhere. "

Jana Rea is also an eighth grader at Melba. Jana is a great student and always busy. She was nominated by Mr. Sessions who states "Jana has worked hard to keep things rolling in Honor Society. She took charge of the induction ceremony and did quite well with it. She has a 102% in English and is helpful with others around her. If she gets done early, she is very willing to take time to work with students who need a little extra push."

We are proud of these girls and glad they are part of our school.

Principal's Corner


We were awarded four star status by the State Department of Education this year!  This is a tremendous accomplishment for our students to be recognized for their improvements in academics and also the dedicated hard work by our teachers to achieve this level of success.  I invite you to come to our school and be a part of the positive things we have going on here.  Thank you for all of your support and dedication to making Melba a great place to live and learn.

Take the opportunity every day to achieve another step towards your goals, learn all you can, smile a lot, laugh often, enjoy your friends and make new ones, and be a proud Melba Mustang!
