Queens Metro is very welcoming and containing and the teachers are top notch! They are highly educated, young, energetic, engaged, good communicators, with high expectations and a passion for teaching. The principal, Ms. Rodriguez-Tabone, is coming straight from Stuyvesant High School, where she used to be the Assistant Principal! She’s an amazing leader, committed to strong academics. She’s bright, approachable and efficient. They have AP and College Now courses. There are kids at Metro who got into Bronx Science and Townsend Harris and chose to come to Metro. Also, recently, kids who were in other Specialized high schools who ended up transferring to Queens Metro.

I really enjoyed how the teachers and other staff worked hard for this school and the DOE. To add on, I love that there are many friendly and intelligent students to be surrounded by. Next, the PTA is very kind and there is a School Store near the College Office and these are benefits. I love that this school shares a campus with 2 other schools which is very cool and each have their own part of the building. Lastly, I really enjoyed the athletics and how the student athletes are coached. Overall, there is a great College Preparation from College 99-102, good athletics, strong academics in which the staff wants all the students to graduate, and great core values such as CITIZENSHIP, LEADERSHIP, RELATIONSHIP, AND SCHOLARSHIP. I will miss this school and GO KNIGHTS!
I had a great experience at Queens Metropolitan high school the teachers and staff were friendly all wanted you to succeed and always offered extra help. The school offered many extracurricular activity there were many ways you were able to get involved. I feel like this school prepared me for college very well, there are college classes that all students had to take. The transition from high school to college can be stressful process, the college classes taught me everything that I needed to know about college and my transtion less stressful.
