Metro High School Reviews

I accredit my college readiness and success to my high school experience at Metro Academic and Classical High School. Learning to balance extracurricular activities and challenging courses at Metro earned me the time-management skills, independence, and tenacity I use every day as a Capstone Scholar and Computer Science major at Howard University. Metro's college counseling services were a tremendous help in getting me where I am today. The Metro High college counselor gives tailored advice to each student based on their unique talents, volunteer history, academic performance, skills and interests, and extracurricular activities. It was through this rigorous process that the college counselor recommended that I attend Howard University. Her tireless work led me to my dream school, and for that I am forever grateful to Metro Academic and Classical High School.

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.
Metro High School is well known for its academic excellence. Although there are a variety of advanced courses a student can take, there are definitely problems within the school. Some teachers are awesome at what they do, but others leave something to be desired. The school itself is smaller than your average high school, which can create a close-knit school community, but also feel cramped.
