I would highly recommend Metro Christian to those seeking a private, Christian education for their student. Metro provides an enthusiastic environment valuing Christ, academia, community, and our great nation. Students and parents alike are encouraged to follow and grow in their Christian faith through the various programs, ministries, and activities supported at the school. Metro Christian students are challenged to become future leaders through academics, athletics, and personal and spiritual growth.
We have had kids in elementary for the past two years. The school (teachers, administration, academics and spiritual life) has exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend Metro to anyone looking for small class sizes, challenging individualized academics and a Christian environment. The parents are also wonderful and definitely represent the Christ-like characteristics we are looking for as examples for our children.
Metro Christian Academy provides a passionate community atmosphere where students and parents can follow their Christian faith and celebrate their patriotism of our great country. Students are challenged academically, athletically, and personally to become future leaders characterized by high integrity. As a parent, I highly recommend Metro to those that value Christ, country, and community.
I have 3 children at Metro and feel blessed everyday they get to go to school there. They have learned so much not only academically, but spiritually as well. It is big enough to be able to offer a lot of options for them as they move up but small enough that you can develop a real closeness with your child's grade. This year we have a new Headmaster and he is doing so many wonderful things for the school. I am impressed with the direction he wants to take Metro. If you are on the fence about coming to Metro I would encourage you to take the step. It has been challenging financially for us as a family, but well worth it. Watching my kids confidence grow and the one on one attention they are able to get from the small class size is invaluable.
I have been a parent at Metro Christian Academy for 18 years. I have seen people come and go, but one thing stays the same: its a Chrsit centered school that cares so deeply about their students. The sense of community is incredible. The love and care from the teachers for my children is beyond what I could ever ask for as a parent. We are blessed to be a part of this incredible school. The tuition is not a payment, its an investmet in our children's lives that will stay with them forever.
Attending Metro was the biggest blessing that the Lord has ever given me. He found me when I was a student here and placed me with teachers and mentors that have shaped me into the woman of the Lord I am today. Metro prepared me to excel in college and beyond. I urge you to prayerfully consider Metro as the place to sharpen your student both in top level education and in Biblical truth.
I attended Metro for high school and have mixed feelings about the school. They claim to be "interdenominational," but it seems most teachers and administrators are somehow affiliated with Oral Roberts (hardly an Ivy League school) and everything faith-related seems to have a fundamentalist Christian slant to it. This doesn't seem 'interdenominational' to me, because theologically there are numerous 'mainstream' Christian denominations that would disagree with many of the 'Oral Roberts-type' beliefs. That being said, Metro did have some good AP courses and smart kids. What surprised me is that you'd think after spending so much on tuition, kids would be attending top tier universities around the country, but it seems like over 60 percent of my class went straight to OSU, and some people even failed out of that school. You can get into OSU from pretty much any high school in Tulsa, so that really wasn't impressive when other private schools in the area seemed to be pushing kids to attend the best schools. Why shouldn't you if you invested in a good education? If I were choosing a high school, I wish I would have gone to Bishop Kelley or Cascia - Christian but not fanatical.
Continued from below: I am sure that all decisions that are made may not always be the most pleasing to all, but trust GOD will open our eyes and ears for HIS WILL to be done. Many pray for our leaders and school body daily, and know the power of prayer is strong. Metro is entering into a new season with a new Headmaster and a new form of Policy Governance. I am excited for our future and truly believe it is expecting the pursuit of excellence in all things through Christ. I would recommend MCA without any hesitation.
This was our first and only year at Metro. My child transferred from public school, where she learned some bad habits. We were kept completely in the dark about how bad some of these habits were until it was a major issue. The school has failed to meet its claims of being close knit and encouraging. I had to begin checking in with the teacher weekly to ensure that things had gotten better. There is a lack of professionalism in communicating with parents. I have been lied to more than once, and I quit reading emails due to being asked for money. The curriculum is fantastic, and its a great school if you are not an involved parent. The faculty and parents can be cliquish, but I have not seen any bullying or cliques in the elementary school. We will not be back next year, though. This was not the Christian atmosphere I hoped for.
We have had two children graduate from Metro and now have two grandchildren who attend. I am so grateful that Tulsa has a private christian school that offers so much. The teachers, staff and administration are very caring. They care about each and every student in all grade levels. We would highly recommend Metro.
Metro has been a blessing in the educational and spiritual development of our sons. Both have graduated from Metro and were truly prepared for college. We loved the family atmosphere and involvement of parents in the school. The teachers and administration truly care about the student body's overall well-being and are excellent educators. We do not regret our decision to be a part of the Metro community! A+
Metro is a wonderful school that truly cares about children. I'm amazed at the level of professionalism and partnership demonstrated by the administration and teachers. Our experiences have been truly amazing. Metro offers a college-prep curriculum within a Christian environment.
I have two children who attend Metro and we have had a WONDERFUL experience. Some parents are reviewing that there are bullying problems. We have been to both public school and now private school. There really are NO BULLYING problems compared to public school, and even compared to other private schools. Every school has children that are unkind occasionally or make poor decisions and Metro is no exception. Kids are kids no matter where you go. However, the elementary at Metro has done an amazing job of teaching students to treat others with kindness and compassion. They have added a program called Rachel's Challenge that promotes kindness and caring and the school has done a wonderful job addressing any issues that arise. The MS and HS will be adding the Rachel's Challenge program next year and I believe it will make a positive impact on those schools as well. The administrators at all levels have a heart for Christ and for kids. They do an amazing job of educating our kids and keeping them safe.
Metro Christian Academy continues to excel in accomplishing its mission of delivering college prepratory education in a non-demoninational, Christian environment. The recent announcment of a new headmaster, as well as the campus improvements from the recent capital campaign, make it an exciting time to be at Metro.
I have two children at Metro and they have had an incredible experience. They have wonderful friends. The students at Metro are well behaved, mannerly, respectful and come from families who are actively involved in their lives. I was recently on a field trip with a group and when we returned there were emails from a person who had been part of the touring company praising our young people's behavior. Metro is a great school with great academics, caring faculty and administrators, and good kids. You should check it out!
I have three children at Metro Christian Acadmeny, all started in Preschool (12 years ago). It has been a fabulous school. Caring teachers, Christian community, high academics, lots of extra-curricular activities. It's the perfect balance of everything. Small enough to keep class sizes low and to provide all students an opportunity to participate in whatever they have an interest in. Big enough to have all major sports, Fine Arts, and AP classes.
Outstanding faculty and teachers who really care about students. Class sizes are perfect and any of my 4 kids can participate in whichever activities they r interested in- sports, fine arts, clubs, etc. We r extremely pleased with metro and would highly recommend u to consider enrolling ur child. Metro also has a wonderful DIC program.
Metro has declined in the last 4 years. The bullying is out of control especially in middle school. The teachers seem to care but don't want to get involved. The administration is absolutely the worst I have ever seen. If you send your child here, you will be very sorry. It is not a challenging school academically either. Most children have very low self esteems, except for the mean kids who seem to run the school, along with their parents. Very political. A terrible environment for your child
Horrible bullying issues & the administration won't address the issues with the mean kids that start the trouble. Multiple families have left for this reason. Very disappointing. The Middle school administration is very unfair & they are either clueless or just don't care about ALL the kids. It's sad but very true.
My daughter has attending Metro from K4 to 4th grade. The Elementary teachers are amazing, love the Lord, and the kids. We are leaving because of the bullying. Admin has refused to acknowledge that there is an issue. Girls can deliver great emotional damage and I cannot allow my daughter to remain in this situation. My daughter is excited to leave. The MS and HS are out of control concerning bullying. They preach one thing and enforce nothing.
