Metro Early College High School Reviews

Metro Early College High School is an amazing school! The teachers, students, and administrators are all very friendly. The classes are challenging but in a good way, because by "forcing" you to get an A in the class, you end the class truly comprehending the material that you learned. On top of that, by the end of your sophomore year, you can have ALL of your high school credits, because each semester you have four, hour and a half classes. Also, because the school was co-founded by OSU and Battelle, by your senior year, you can be taking ALL college classes at either OSU or Columbus State. My sister graduated in 2018 with 36 OSU college credits; she knows, as a sophomore, holds a junior standing because of all of the extra credits she gained in high school. The best thing about it is that the classes you take are 100% FREE!

Academically, the Mastery program ensures that students have a full understanding of the work required for every class. It's not simply memorizing for a test, but having a deep understanding of the content. The aggressive pace of classes is akin to college and the ability for high-performing students to complete their high school curriculum early and begin OSU or CSCC classes early is fantastic. Kids are not coddled, they learn time management and how to advocate for themselves. The diverse student body provides an excellent perspective on real-world economic and social differences. Teachers are super committed to excellence.
Metro Early College High school is overall a good school. No one will admit it because it's school, but it's a good school. There's a lot of work you have to put into each class because it is at an accelerated rate, but it does really help with college readiness. The school pays for college classes after you've gotten all your required high school credits, which has come to be more of an expectation rather than a privilege with Metro. I would still say Metro, if the student pays attention, is a great school for preparation for your college years. Multiple alumni have said that although they didn't like Metro at the time, they couldn't argue that the school did prepare them very well for college life.
