    "This year has been my first experience with the Prince George's Country public school system. I had heard horror stories over the years; however, to my great surprise, under the leadership of Mrs. Fossett, Melwood Elementary School's staff members have dispelled all of those negative myths! Mrs. Fossett has demonstrated the perfect combination of no-nonsense professionalism coupled with deep care and nurturing for the students. With Mrs. Fossett's leadership style and the excellent tutelage of Ms. Williams, my kindergarten scholar has excelled! As a "new learner" she has embraced the importance of her academic studies and has developed a desire to continuously excel. I sincerely appreciate the Melwood Elementary School staff for their hard work and dedication. I especially appreciate Mrs. Fossett and Ms. Williams' dedication, professionalism, accessibility, responsiveness, and willingness to go above and beyond they are exceptional representatives for the entire Prince Georges County school system! I applaud you!"

    "My children are excelling at Melwood Elementary School! My son had difficulties at his prior school, he was almost retained. His teachers were very harsh and tense. This year, his teacher is more hands-on, and keeps me informed. My son's grades are almost the complete opposite to last year! My daughter is in kindergarten and she is blossoming as well. The first day of school was so exciting! Ms. Manners (dance instructor, THE BEST dance instructor) had children at the front door playing drums to greet all students, parents and staff. The school was nicely decorated. The staff members were all on their posts with huge smiles and in their "flight" themed outfits. Amazing! The school has many activities to keep the children and parents involved and excited. My son plays trumpet, they are both in the Good News Club, they have dance weekly, media time, Spanish.....we truly enjoy being the parents of Melwood Hawk scholars!!"

    "I can not say enough great things about this school. This is my son's second year, he is a 1st grader and I can not imagine having him any where else. The principal, Mrs. Fosset is truly DYNAMIC. She truly seems invested in the school and the scholars acheivements. I can tell that his teacher is about her buisness and I appreciate the effort she puts in her work. My son is proof positive that learning is taking place at Melwood. Every day he comes home telling me something new he learned in Spanish class, or tid bits of his lesson from his teacher Mrs. Simms. I am truly blown away by the staff. 5 stars in not nearly enough."

    "Caring teachers and lots of individual attention. Schools get such a bad reputation in Prince Georges but this school is an undiscovered gem."
