Mission, Vision & Core Values


Melissa ISD will empower ALL students to reach their utmost potential to achieve excellence and life-long success.


In Melissa ISD, we share the responsibility of growing a community of learners. This requires action from each stakeholder:

“The Students will be active partners in their education. They will be engaged, confident individuals who pursue life-long learning. The Students will demonstrate pride in their community and contribute positively to society.

“The Faculty and Staff will foster the unique development of each child by encouraging independent thought and creativity. Through research, study, and continued education, they will further develop their mastery of their discipline.

“The Parents will partner with faculty, staff, and students to encourage and support the learning process. This partnership will develop through communication and participation at all grade levels.

“The Community will support both academic and extra-curricular activities. By working together with the schools, they will foster a sense of pride by encouraging and celebrating success.
