Sadly enough, M.E.T.S Charter School has been an unorganized, unfair disappointment. I transferred here as a junior due to other schools shutting down and expected great things from this school and staff in the beginning of the school year but as the school year is coming to the end, other students, staff, and mostly parents and I have been let down in the topics of education, organization, school spirit, safety, and correct information let out to everyone.

Hello, well I go tin METS in Newark NJ and I started there junior year. Junior year was a challenging but good experience. It was challenging because the teachers that were hired to teach us didn’t really want to teach the subject they were given. For example I had a teacher that just wanted to teach Chemistry and Physics but they gave him other classes like SAT prep to teach. However, I made some good friends and my anatomy teacher was really helpful and taught me some incredible things.
I like the fact that METS Charter School is very diverse in students and cultures. The fact that we don't have a lot of clubs and activities, except for sports, makes the school boring. We don't really go on college trips nor do we do anything fun. We don't have pep rallies or spirit week, we don't even have a gym. Our school is far from a great high school; we need a ton of improvement.
