MLC is a safe and fun learning environment where people can be themselves and feel free to explore a variety of social issues that affect us locally, nationally, and globally. MLC is a diverse school where different cultures are acknowledged and celebrated. The family/community involvement through food/clothing drives and volunteering with the school is a great opportunity for students to engage and bridge together. Administration is caring, supportive, and proactive in our education helping us to excel in our academics and preparing us for college.

I personally have been involved in MLC through academics, sports, and clubs from National Honor Society to Softball to Drama Club. It has been a rewarding experiece for me as a student at MLC. Ive had the pleasure of building some great friendships in the classroom, on field, and on stage. We are all family at MLC with a big Dragon Spirit. I love MLC. My experience at MLC has been FUNtastic!

My experience at the Metropolitan Learning Center has been a great journey meeting new people and being there from 6th grade has taught me a lot of things. The educational system is very good, once you enter high school you start taking more rigorous classes. AP classes and Diploma classes that are on college level classes that will prepare you for the next steps at a university. The connection with the teachers are easy to be bonded with and are very open to students and eager for students opinions for improvements. The only thing that I do wish is that there can be more of a variety of classes that fit the fields of study we desire to purse in college.
My overall experience with Metropolitan Learning Center is that it is very diverse. There are several different cultures of students that I am able to interact with on a daily basis, that allows me as well as others to learn about other diverse cultures and their way of life. The college readiness is at 100 percent, which encourages me to seek further education beyond high school. The academic courses are challenging, but it allows us to prepare ourselves for the future and what it takes to get ready for college. The food that is offered is average, and no one goes hungry. The teachers are always there and available for help. They go out of their way to assist with any questions or additional help that is needed. With the abundance of security at the school, there is always a constant feeling of being safe and secure. I notice that there are a lot of parents that are involved in school activities.
