    Greetings Metro Students and Families!

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! My name is Dr. Tina Hamilton (She/Her/Hers), and it is of the utmost honor to join the Metro family as your next principal. Metro’s distinguished 50+ year legacy of shaping talented youth into globally aware and civically-engaged leaders attracted me to enter a new chapter in my professional journey by joining this uniquely warm and tight-knit school community!

    As principal, I aim to honor tradition and continue excellence by building off of the rich legacy that has shaped Metro into the unique and thriving school it is today. Further, my work as an educator is driven by a deeply held commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. With that said, I am dedicated to ensuring that ALL members of the Metro family feel seen, heard, valued, know that they matter, and most importantly, know that they belong.

    To share a little about myself, I am a native of the Saint Louis region and have served over twenty years as an educator. I started my career serving in the School District of University City for eight years as an English teacher and reading specialist. Later, I joined the Saint Louis Public Schools team for fourteen years serving in the roles of academic instructional coach, assistant principal, and principal. Most recently, I served as the principal of Jefferson School in the Normandy Schools Collaborative.

    I am incredibly excited to work alongside a dynamic group of teachers and staff who are deeply committed to providing our students with the best academic experience. I look forward to being your partner in education to ensure that ALL of our students succeed as they embark upon an AMAZING school year.

    Your partner in education,

    ~ Dr. Tina Hamilton
