"Great Principal, great plans, students come first no matter who they are, what they like or want to do or their capabilities. Great decision sending my daughter here and my son can’t wait to be old enough to go too." - April, 2020
"The new buildings and landscape look amazing but there is also the exceptional work that the teachers put in to each student at Melba College. They take the time to get to know every student and support the needs of each learner. Melba College is a brilliant community for students, teachers and parents." - Jayne, 2020
"A really caring team of teachers and staff who support the kids in their education. Good control over bullying and they teach the kids to be accepting of all students." - Naomi, 2020
"My daughter attended Melba for Years 8-12, graduating 2017. She was very happy there and whenever I went to parent teacher conferences I felt how much the teachers cared about her. Melba’s band is fantastic and their yearly productions are always a highlight. Rock of Ages in her final year was her favourite. There were continual opportunities to participate in fun things like yearly surf camp, band camps & tours interstate, the German exchange program, Central Australia trip, and more. At her final year 12 assembly I was touched by the love & appreciation shown to the teachers by the graduating students. A pity she had to leave before the new buildings were finished! I always found the office staff to be friendly and helpful too." - Melanie, 2018
"Our second son has just finished year 12. Between our 2 sons I have had 12 years at Melba( previously Maroondah) College. It is an awesome school. The duty of care is fantastic. One of my sons is on the spectrum and he has completed year 12. This was not a given. He would never have done it without the excellent staff support. The staff have been dedicated and always go the extra mile. Send your child here with confidence in receiving a great education and a fabulous upbringing. I am indebted and cannot heap enough praise or gratitude on all the staff over 12 years." - Kylie, 2016
