Metro Tech's environment is very positive; students help one another as well as teachers. The teacher are extremely helpful towards their students and caring of them. The thing that makes Metro Tech stand out is that it obtains numerous Career and Technical Education (CTE) classes. Some are Nursing Assistant, Business Management, Culinary Arts, Engineering, Banking, Fashion, and so many more!

My experience at Metro Tech high school has been amazing. There are many careers and technical education (CTE) classes that help the students prepare for what they want to do after high school. There are programs such as Nursing, Cosmetology, Construction, Culinary, Engineering, and other programs that students can choose from. These classes help students get hands-on experience and also get the opportunity to take the state board test in order to get certified. The teachers provide the best resources to students. This school is very small and due to this, there are fewer students compare to other high schools. I like Metro Tech because there are many teachers that want to help students become successful and pursue a career after high school. The number of support students get from teachers and the administration is priceless. I am glad I got accepted to Metro tech high school because they have helped me become the student I am now and will continue my education after high school.
My experience at Metro Tech high school is good because every teacher I encounter taught me a significant message that every day you will always learn something new. One thing I would like to see a change in Metro tech is getting the student to interact with other students or teachers. In our generation, the students are isolated from society because of their cellphone. Which causes the student to have no one to talk to, a shoulder to cry or no self-confident; instead, I would like to change this by talking to a student on the hallway, talk to people during class, and on the bathroom's mirror, I would sticky notes and write message to brighten up someone day. When the student sees my message, I hope they can smile.
