Metro Early College High School Reviews

Metro Early college high school is a great school for students who want to be challenged. There are a few unhelpful teachers, but most are caring and attentive, even the difficult ones. The student culture is excellent. The school is extremely diverse.

However, the administration can be disorganized. Increasingly, this high school is not a priority among the metro governing board, which has to focus on creating a middle school and technical high school from scratch. Specifically, the learning center experience is a shadow of what it once was.

Also note that because admission to college is based on student performance relative to other students at your school, this does not look good on college applications. Furthermore, there are no AP classes here. AP classes are both easier than real college classes and look better to colleges because they are standardized.

This was a great place to go and it's heartbreaking to see some aspects of it decline.

Metro was an overall mediocre school. The opportunities it presented to me were amazing but the organization and administration of the schools are lacking. Some of the faculty are outstanding and care about their students while others are just as eager to get out as the students are. After attending the school from 8th grade through senior year, only 4 of my teachers remained at Metro. However, I was given a great internship through my learning center which continued to grow and land me another paid internship at the NIH for the summer. The robotics team at Metro has also offered me great opportunities.
At Metro High School, I was blessed to be able to experience the mastery system that the school has to offer. The Mastery system is basically an alternative system that allows students to learn and understand what is taught by the teachers in a better way. Moreover, students are required to receive 90% on all mastery assignments, as well as the class itself, in order to progress to the next class. Although it may seem arduous, the mastery system also includes a 'remediation' process, allowing students to learn from their mistakes and gives them a chance to try again. Traditionally, students are use to the "letter grade" grading system. However, Metro students learn that you either 'master' a concept or it is a work in progress (WIP).
