I graduated from this High School, and to be honest; it is the best school! Teachers are willing to help you in any way they can for you to succeed. Several Career Technical Education classes to prepare students for their career paths. Additionally, it is a safe environment, where one can enjoy their free time. Overall, Metro Tech high school gave me a spectacular experience within four years!

Metro Tech High School opens doors for students. By giving students the opportunity to get involved in classes in which they can learn trades, the school itself gives students a better idea of what would best fit them after college. Some students have left the school with well paid jobs, due to the connections the staff has with people in special industries. I personally benefited greatly from these classes. Overall, the staff and teachers are always ready to help and provide you with the assistance you need. The school itself is safe, with occasional problems as any other school. One thing I would like to change though is the diversity there is. Most of the students there are Hispanic; I would've loved to have gotten to know more people from different cultures.
Going to Metro Tech High School is a great opportunity to increase not only knowledge on subjects but readiness for college, career, and life. Being a Junior at Metro Tech has already given me very important skills that are needed out of the classroom; Critical thinking, leadership skills, communication skills only to name a few. This is what is best known from Metro Tech preparing students for success from full engagement from teachers to students. They give us the ability to learn through real world problems allowing students to use and improve problem solving skills. Not only this but the students, the teachers, administration all work together to make a safe school environment for everyone. This makes everyone feel like they're part of something and involved into the success that Metro Tech provides.
