Metropolitan Career Tech Center Reviews
The Met's philosophy is built around career-based learning. Students create their own learning plans with their teachers, mentors, and parents. Students design their own projects based around what they are learning at their internships they go to two days out of the week. Unlike most schools, The Met doesn't have standardized tests or classes. However, students get high school credits through their projects, internships, and college classes. At the end of each trimester, students have to showcase their learning in front of their peers, teachers, parents, and mentors and are graded on their overall engagement, academic rigor, and personal growth from the project.
The MET is the best school I've ever been to! We have many opportunities to learn about what we are passionate about and we even learn through internships! One thing that can maybe change is the food quality but honestly everything else about this school is amazing.
There is only one downside to this school. They don’t have any sports teams. But that can be amended. If students at the Met want to practice sports then the school will get them on a team in the district they live in. That is the greatest thing about the Met; if you want to do something the facility will try their hardest to make sure you have the opportunity to do it. Students have the option to earn college credit and receive certifications. Two days out of the school week students have internships with local businesses of their choice to learn about and experience a career/trade they have an interest in. Students have the chance to figure out what they want to be when they finish trade school, go to college, or graduate from high school. Too many people graduate not knowing what their next step will be. No student is left unnoticed and are guided through their education while also leaving room for independence.
