Metro High School Reviews

Metro is a very academically successful high school. They are serious about educating their students and preparing them for college. Though the learning environment is aggressive, the students are still allowed to have fun and given certain freedoms when they deserve it! The overall atmosphere of the school was great to me.

The school community is the best thing about it, on a student level. Most of the students respect each other. However, teacher-student relationships are often, or rather always lacking, and there is little consistency (8 new teachers were hired in the summer of 2016). While there is plenty to say both in defense and in attack (is that the right word) of Metro, the big points are: Academics are rigorous, but expects too much of us, teacher-student relationships need improvement, and overall morale is poor. Cheating at Metro is common, and even some teachers acknowledge the ridiculous requirements put upon us. I'll end it here before I write a whole essay.
Metro is hurting in recent years, as the school has lost funding and some very good teachers. However, if you want a school that will prepare you for college for free, Metro is your best choice. Yes, there's a lot of work, but it's for a purpose. If you want to succeed and are prepared to work for it, Metro will help you fulfill your ambition. Just be prepared to deal with uneven teachers, a culture that accepts and glorifies student failure, a DANGEROUS surrounding area, and some bonehead administrators.
