My experience with Metea valley is excellent. School's atmosphere is pleasant. The teachers are supportive and caring. There are a lot of resources in metea, which are easily accessible. This helps students to improve academic overall. Also the school's culture is amazing because there is a lot of different cultures. Unlike the other schools the food in metea exceeds the expectations of students. Safety in metea is tremendous. In fact they do mock fire trials to prepare students, so they know how react during that situation. The staff are biased to one specific race.
I personally enjoyed going to Metea Valley it had a lot of great aspects of what a high school should be. It provided lots of resources for everyone and tried to get as many people involved in them to help better the students. The school is located on the border of Aurora and Naperville and is a very diverse school with everyone feeling accepted at all times. The school is young so culture is lacking and so is the athletics, but it has gotten better over the years. It has increased its safety protocols as well having deans assistances at all the entrances letting people in and out of the building. Metea ranks high amongst all the high schools in Illinois and the nation providing everyone with a great education.
