The teachers are okay. Most of them are very knowledgable in their fields of study. The school is very indivisualized for the sudents needs so the teachers take a lot of time to make sure the students are understanding what they are learning. The school itself is underfunded and I found it amazing how much time and effort they put into their lectures to make sure we were able to expirence a decent education. Over-all I found that the teachers are good. If they had the proper funding they would be great!

I absolutely love the school! I started at Metro-Meridian but then moved after it was closed. I love how small the school is, and how the teachers are easy to talk to about anything there is to talk about. It's easy to get caught back up and even get ahead on credits
The area was bad and the school set up was even worse. The school wasn't provided proper busing so we were supplied a bus card to get too and from school using public transportation. We shared our school with an adult learning program so sometimes there would be "iffy" people talking to the high school students or causing drama with us. Also there was some type of reform school in the basement of the school so there were always police and SRO's in our school. In terms of location we were in the same location as WSU (which is an urban campus.) and we shared the same public transit with them which some times (not always) either turning into conflict or frienships. Over-all, the school is sorta safe, but very iffy. I can't recall any good expirences either than my accademics yielding from the school.
