Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School Reviews

The Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School is a college-bound preparatory school that hosts grades 6-12. The diversity in the high school portion is greater than in the middle school part, but I would say they are almost equivalent. The education is clearly driven to promote a seamless passage into college life after high school, but the administration tries harder to provide this experience to people who have shown higher success rates through grades and extracurriculars. There is a uniform at the school which many students do not like, but it somewhat helps bullying and discrimination against other students. The courses that are required make it almost impossible not to graduate if every or most classes are passed throughout one's high school career. They are lacking in the clubs and activities department as they do not have a wide variety of options due to a lack of budget.

Love this school! The pricipals know each student by name, the teachers care about their students passing their classes and ensure this by offering office hours and extensive help. There are many after school programs to choose from and a homework space provided to high schoolers almost every day of the week.
I liked that the school prepares you for college with so much resources. I used to go here in middle school and it feels like a charter and private school although it is public. The teachers are very kind hearted if you are on their good side. The school teaches students a lot of discipline because they are very strict on keeping the school's reputation looking good to the public eye. Most of the time the students will complain that the school is so fake and brain washes the students and teachers. In my experience I am very adaptable so this doesn't affect me.
