Since I have been apart of Metter High School all I have gotten is love, support and the full on Tiger experience! I am currently a senior and I have participated in various events/clubs. Activities such as Varsity softball, Captain of the cheerleading squad, Peer ambassadors, Beta Club, FCA, Representative for homecoming court and so much more. Being able to be apart of so many activities has allowed me to create wonderful memories with amazing families and friends. I would not want to be apart of any other school.

I like a lot of things about my high school. Metter High School is a bully and drug free zone! It is a healthy environment to be in, and the atmosphere is very positive based. There are no biased staff, teachers, nor administration. The academic preparation for college is superb and the clubs, especially, the in-school activities are very opportunistic for preparation for college! Overall, there isn't much I would like to change to the school that I attend. Everyone does the best they can with what they have and that is all we as students could ever ask for!
Metter High School is a great place to learn and socialize. Classrooms are filled with a wide array of students which makes it especially easy to find someone you connect with. Most teachers are kind, understanding, and always there to help.

In addition, there is a large range of sports and clubs. This includes FBLA. Metter High School contains one of the best chapters in their region and won "Chapter of the Year" a few years back (about 3).

As for academics, the school has many options including Dual Enrollment classes. Through Dual Enrollment, students are eligible to attend FREE college classes and earn transferable credits (University System of Georgia). Alternatively, struggling students can opt to take easier classes OR classes in the Educational Learning Center.

A great school is nothing without a great community. Students can volunteer at soup kitchens, join in the Great American Cleanup, or even volunteer at the school. Additionally, there are countless local scholarships.
