Mr. Sergio A. Munoz, Principal

As the instructional leader of Melrose Elementary it is with great pleasure and optimism that I communicate this message to all of our students, parents, and community at large.

As a rock is chiseled into shape, polished and protected, to become a precious gem, the teachers, staff and administration of Melrose Elementary School treat each individual child as a jewel.

Through the use of Multiple Intelligence as an approach to learning, we integrate our Global Studies Theme and infuse Florida State Standards to reach optimum success in academic achievement, keeping in mind the diverse culture in which we live, work and play.
