Welcome to Metro A&C High School's Principal Corner
July 23, 2018
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I look forward to meeting all of you soon, if we haven’t connected already. 2017-18 was a banner year for Metro. We experienced great success in athletics; winning numerous championships and setting records for victories in various sports. Our students received national recognition in debate, won a state championship in chess, and many students made substantial impact in our community through their service to others. The graduating class of 2018 set a high bar for our rising students. They achieved an average ACT score of 27.1 (the highest in Metro history) and received scholarship offers of over 19 million dollars! I challenge all of our rising classes to meet and exceed the levels set by the class of 2018.
Although we had a great year, we are always trying to improve what we do. Several things to look forward to this year:
We have also added some excellent new staff members. Please make sure you meet the individuals listed and introduce yourselves on your next visit to school. We feel confident that their addition will add to Metro’s success.
