Indianapolis Met High School is really good if you are interested in small classes and a lot of 1 on 1 time with teachers and staff. The teachers and staff are very supportive and helpful; in addition they are easy to make bonds with. I like that our school now has a daycare to where students with children can still come to school instead of having to stay home. Also, they are adding a student ran coffee shop open for students and staff. Overall, this school is different and interesting.

Indy Met had a great impact on my senior year, they help a lot inside and outside of school. Subjects I struggled in they offer extra help to students who needed it. Indy Met education was very important so they were concerned about students who didn't take school serious.
Before entering this school, I had heard wonderful things about it which made me decide to go to the school. After going the for years my relationship with the staff, teachers and principals evolved in a way that made coming to school feel like home. I love the relationships each teacher and staff offers. They really do care about their students. This school is unique because they make sure they will do whatever it takes for you to succeed and go beyond. If I could, I would choose this school all over again because it felt like home, it was love all over and the experiences there are amazing.
