The student body overall was really bad, half the staff left last year and it was defined as "normal", and the principal didn't help at all when I had a problem. The education overall was too easy for my liking, and I had the worst time there.
Metro is a great school! I feel like anyone who is hard working and longing to have a great future should come here. It gets you prepared for college and works on your weak spots. Teachers and friends are just like family.
Metro is a great place to work because of the relationships we work hard to create between students, teachers, parents, and other staff members. It's a school where people feel comfortable voicing their opinions and talking with one another. It's a great place to be because there are always people you can go to for support and who want to work hard to help you to succeed.
My freshman loves going to school now and starts his homework without any reminders. We have been overhelmed by the level of enthusiasm & commitment of the teachers and staff. My mother attended the back to school night with us and then Lowell's back to school night the next evening. She could not stop talking about how much more interesting the teachers and the curriculum are at Metro compared to the 'best public school' in the Bay Area.
This is an excellent school in every sense of the word. I am proud to be a teacher at a public high school which holds art as a high priority, teaches real world leadership skills, bases its curriculum on projects of high academic and creative quality, and is home to such an amazing staff and student body.
I love teaching at Metro. We have a great staff that's super supportive of each other and super caring about all of the students! And the students are amazing individuals full of talent and potential!!!
