Metropolitan arts institute is a diverse school with a friendly atmosphere and creative staff and students. The school focuses on performing and visual arts with capable instructors for every class, while also preparing students for college with academic classes. While lacking in a broad selection of classes, it makes up for it in the small size of the classes, giving every individual the attention and instruction they need. This school does not currently offer any sports or gym class for high schoolers, but has multiple dance and physical expression classes.

Metropolitan Arts Institute is an amazing school! There really is something for every one. I recently moved here from across the country and was worried about the welcome I'd get and having to make all new friends my junior year, but they welcomed me with open arms!
When I started my senior year at Metro it’s my first impression was that everybody was very expressive in their creativity. In a small school with a total of 250 students it was easy to be an individual. Whereas in a regular high school with more than 1000 students, they lack individuality. All of the teachers in each class push all of their students to be the best that they can while being advanced and following the appropriate and necessary curriculum whether it be a performing art or a visual art. Because of all of these traits everybody respect one another regardless of the art their in. Any student could say that they will have a difficult time finding another school like Metropolitan Art Institute.
