Metro-East Lutheran High School Reviews

I enjoyed my time at Metro East Lutheran. I had attended Lutheran schools for all levels of education prior to high school, and many of the local Lutheran grade schools funneled into here, so many of my friends and students that I had played sports against attended this school as well. Because of this, there was an immediate sense of community that could be tapped into. Furthermore, the school prepared the students for college. There were also many different opportunities to be involved in various sports or clubs.

As a current junior at MELHS, I am so glad I am at this school. A lot of kids complain about it, but they would complain all the same if they were at a different school. Our school isn’t necessarily the best at a lot of things but you don’t have to be the best to be good. The faculty is full of respectable Christian teachers that really care about their students. There’s plenty of sports and activities to get involved in. Clubs include things like Spanish Club, String Ensemble, Scholar Bowl, Engineering Club, NHS, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Garden Club, and more. For the size of the school, the variety of classes is incredible. A majority of students take honors classes, and the school offers about 5 different AP classes as well as many Dual-Credit options. I am personally so glad that I have the opportunity to go to this school and I would definitely recommend it.
I transferred to Metro as a Junior and it took me awhile to warm up to the school. After joining three sports teams and a club I can definitely say that I made the most of my time there and enjoyed almost every second of it! A few of the students can be cliquey but you just have to find your group and what you love. The staff is amazing and genuinely care about you. I would do it all over again in a second!
