In 2012 Melville SHS was granted Independent Public School (IPS) status. As an IPS school we remain part of the public school system but have greater control over the overall governance of our school. Using a one-line budget, we can employ the staff we consider best suited to the current and emerging needs of our students. We have greater autonomy to manage our own affairs and develop the strategies and functions that best cater to our community and, above all, our students.
In 2014 the school had its three-yearly IPS Review. The findings were fantastic and are well worth reading if you would like an overview of the school and the great things that are happening at all levels.
