About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Metropolitan Continuation High School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Metropolitan Continuation High School Reviews
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.
