THE DIFFERENCE IS THAT OUR SCHOOLS CHALLENGE STUDENTS ACADEMICALLY WHILE EXTENDING LEARNING INTO THE REAL WORLD.
What sets the Met apart?
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday – Met School Academic Days – students take part in classes, curriculum workshops, field trips and assignments, just like their more traditional student counterparts. But in addition, they also take part in independent study and inquiry-based research projects.
These days develop skill and competence in the curricular areas: math, physical education, language arts and advanced sciences. Students write the provincial English and Math Standards Exams and are awarded Honour Role status for an average of 80% and above in all courses.
On Tuesday and Thursday, students participate in unique real-world experiences, in workplaces that relate to their fluid career goals. These internship days allow students to hone their pre-employment skills like resume development and interview techniques and then help them explore a variety of interests by working alongside real-world mentors.
OUR PROGRAMMING HELPS KEEP STUDENTS INSPIRED, ACCOUNTABLE AND CONSTANTLY STRIVING TO REACH THEIR PERSONAL AND CAREER GOALS.
