Mr. Melville is a great teacher. I had him for Civics and he's very knowledgeable. I have to admit, he is kinda scary, but he's a great person (for the most part haha). It's nice seeing him add some humour into his classes, as he engages his class easily. I strongly recommend him. It's sad to hear he's retiring this year. May he enjoy his retirement!

I am now a 3rd year university student now but i had him for gr 10 . I am rating him after all these years because he was an absolutely amazing teacher. He intimidated me at first but very soon I started to absolutely love his teaching style, his stories and how he would encourage us to do our readings before class. we also had a major lock down while we were in his class so that was quite memorable. You need to put in some effort in his class but he is AMAZING!!

Mr.Melville is a very informative teacher. He is diabetic, so his students have to get used to him eating during lessons or whenever he feels his blood sugar level is low. His sense of humour is out of this world. There was never a dull moment in his class. He is a kid at heart. His marking style is fair and provides help if asked at the right time. He detests cheaters and late comers.
One d. adv - He will embarrass you in front of the class if you do something to tick him off.

I like him as a person, but whenever I ask him for help he turns me down (unlike all of the other teachers that is). He is a great guy, but i'm kinda glad he's retiring in 2016 at the same time.

Great teacher. Great personality. Fun to talk to, yet knowledgeable in fields of study. If you do the work, your grades will reflect that. Recommend Grade 12 Economics

Although he is fairly knowledgeable about his course, his personality and approach to students is highly questionable. He yells far too much. Highly recommend that you stay AWAY!
