Melrose has a challenging curriculum and a modest sports program (fall and spring soccer, basketball, and lacrosse if enough people are signed up). It has a student:teacher ratio of about 1:8 and a maximum class size of 18. For more information, call (845) 279 2406 extension 16 for the Admissions Office or go to
