More About Melissa, TX
As with many towns in the greater rings of Dallas, Texas, the small town of Melissa has seen exponential growth in both residential and commercial development over the past several years. A huge perk to the city is it’s easy freeway access, with Interstate 75, State Highway 5 as well as 121/Sam Rayburn Highway running directly through town which allows for optimum commuting accessibility as well as limitless travel to explore all Texas has to offer.

The district has also seen growth as more students move into the area, however, the student-to-teacher ratio remains low and test scores are continually higher than the national average, making the district highly sought-after among those in surrounding communities.
