Forum: What's the Common Core? What Common Core Standards Mean for Massachusetts, the Melrose Public Schools, and Your Child.
The Common Core Standards are being implemented throughout the Melrose Public Schools this year.
In an effort to provide more information to parents and the community, Superintendent Cyndy Taymore, Mayor Dolan and the Melrose Education Coalition are co-sponsoring a forum about the new standards on Thursday, October 4 at 7:00 pm in the High School Resource Room.
Superintendent Taymore and Curriculum Director Margaret Adams will present: “What's the Common Core? What Common Core Standards Mean for Massachusetts, the Melrose Public Schools, and Your Child.”
This forum, the first in a series on topics in education, also will include a Q&A session, and an informal reception will follow. This is a great chance to chat with administrators and have your questions answered.
More About Melrose High School
Melrose High School, built in 1975, has undergone technology upgrades in the past few years and eliminated the "open space" classrooms, thanks to the new middle school built next door. The school is led by Principal Daniel Richards, who took the helm starting in 2011.
In addition to college preparatory classes, Melrose High School offers 54 honors-level courses and Advanced Placement courses ranging from English and various foreign languages to U.S. History and Calculus. Students are required to perform 12 hours of community service each year in high school in order to graduate.
Outside the classroom, over 40 clubs and organizations are available to Melrose High School students, and 16 sports are offered at the varsity and sub-varsity level.
