Great teachers and kind faculty! Some parts of the building were very outdated, though they are working to improve. Safety has improved within the past year! College readiness depends upon the student and their willingness.

Metamora High School is a quality school with great academic opportunities, as well as many extracurricular activities. Students will find counselors and teachers that are helpful and caring, as well as coaches that help students build character. Academic options provide a solid background needed for college, but also allows for many elective opportunities, which encourages students to explore their passions. Metamora High School is a great place to get a really good education.
Overall, Metamora is just an average school. The teachers are great, but the school lacks different cultures and liberal viewpoints. Because it is located in a farming community, there is a lack of acceptance towards people who aren’t of the norm. The school has a serious racial issue, and it has drug its students through the mud because of it. Other than that, I’ve had a okay experience with teachers and many of the faculty members.
