ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT

By focusing on homework and classroom enrichment, volunteer tutors provide students with the academic help they need succeed in school. Metro also empowers students to take their education into their own hands by connecting them with scholarship organizations

CHARACTER EDUCATION

By learning about virtues and good habits, students develop the necessary tools to become better students, daughters, sisters and friends. In the character development class, students discuss and learn how to practically implement virtues such as: 

  • Respect
  • Service to others
  • Hard work

 

INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION

Each student that comes to Metro is assigned a volunteer tutor-mentor that works with them the entire school year. With a focus on academics and character development, time spent each week with the same volunteer has proven to be an integral part of the overall improvement of the student. 


ARTS & WELLNESS

Metro students participate in a variety of extra-curriculur activities to gain skills and confidence while discovering interest and future hobbies. Some of our activities include:

                    • Visual and Performing Arts
                    • Fitness, Sports and Dance Classes
                    • Public Speaking
                    • Culinary Classes 

 


PARENTS

At Metro, we believe parents are the primary educators of their children. 

From the beginning, open communication and program participation is established with students' parents through several events and activities:

  • Parent nights once a semester
  • Parent conferences annually
  • Special family events
  • Conversation and Coffee on program evenings.
