My experience at Metwest High School was extremely positive. Although the school is somewhat lacking in course offerings, it more than makes up for that by offering and accommodating students with concurrent enrollment at the local community colleges. The school also facilitates students finding and attending internships during the day, which allowed me to further my interest in architecture.

Very good life lessons that prepare you for life after high school. Despite that, they lack the academic department with limited options and subpar lesson plans.
Has lots of support, caring and supporting staff and teachers. This school gives you an opportunity to go out and find a place to volunteer in that’s connected to a career you want to do in the future.
