Metropolitan Continuation High School Reviews

Thank You

By , a Former Student on

I'm A former graduate of Metropolitan High School. I graduated in 1992 and i loved this school because the teachers cared and it was a closeness that I felt instead of the larger schools. I was kicked out of Westchester High School due to my conduct at the time. I went there and felt if I had been there before, my conduct would have not been so bad. I'm very pleased with the amount of care the teachers showed me. Thank You.

I'm a former graduate of Metropolitan High School. I graduated in June 1970.
What I loved about this school were the teachers. They made us students feel the care they had for our education. They wanted us to succeed in what ever we set out to do. They showed us that they cared about our future. They encouraged us to seek a better future.
The other thing I liked was the attention the teachers gave to each student. There wasn't a lot of distraction like there was at other high schools. To the teachers like Mrs Ferguson and her family who I enjoyed became friends with. I thank you for your encouragement and patience.
