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.
Love attending Metro, small artist community. The faculty is very open minded and love what they do. My teachers are always checking in on students to make sure they're always happy. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years at Metro Arts and would highly recommend it to any young person who is looking to become a better person and fully unlock their artist potential.
