Register For School

Welcome to Melrose Public School’s registration information page. For some of you, this is your first exposure to the Melrose Public Schools, while for others it continues your child’s educational experience. We look forward to working with you and your son/daughter to make the years ahead rich and rewarding ones. Our talented and committed staff, teachers and administrators stand ready to partner with you to help your child discover the joy of learning in the classroom, on the playground, on our athletic fields, or while participating in one of our many arts programs. Melrose is about community and we are pleased that you have chosen to join the other parents, families, and students that make up the Melrose Public School educational community.
