Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township Reviews

Our choice to enroll our kids at Ben Davis came after researching the AP/Honors courses available compared to other private high schools in the area. We knew the rich AP course offerings (20+ classes) coupled with the diverse student body were perfect for our family. And the decision has proven fruitful! Our kids were able to take advantage of the great academics, theatre/music programs, and strong athletic teams. Most importantly, our children experienced an environment where students from all socioeconomic statuses, ethnicities, religions, and experiences came together. We wanted our children to have a "real world" school experience, not one where they were placed in a homogenous bubble of students. Ben Davis was just that and prepared our children to go into their universities and careers with the ability to move through and feel comfortable in different spaces and communities with ease. This understanding is the foundation to empathy and understanding that we need in this world.

I love how diverse it is and how it really wants its students to go forward with their education. Some of the teachers could be better but their motives are all good. They all want to help people that most likely come from a low income background to really flourish and they also want to push them into the world so that they can be our next doctors, lawyers, teachers, politicians, etc. I am very proud to be part of such a great township
I admire and am very familiar with The Metropolitan School District and what it stands for; diversity and non-discriminatory quality education. As a whole, the district is very aware and respectful of many students' differing opinions and perspectives.Being apart of this district through nearly my whole educational career, I have observed how it has improved over the years. One of their greatest improvements is the addition to Ben Davis University High School's "Early College Program" which grants students a HS diploma as well as an Associates degree.I am thankful that BDUHS is setting an example for other high schools. I would gladly recommend it to all incoming freshman students. This program is not only contributing to the betterment of youth in the community, but also to the struggling parents of the community, providing a financially acceptable college education for students that may otherwise not be able to receive this quality education.
