Metro is a small, intellectually vibrant public STEM school option open to students throughout central Ohio. All Metro students engage in a personally relevant and academically rigorous curriculum within a safe and trusting environment.
All Metro enrollments are through a non-selective lottery process. Our lottery is conducted each March for the following fall.
The application deadline for our initial lottery drawing for the 2019-2020 school year is February 17. Students applying by the deadline will be included in the lottery for open seats. Applications received after the deadline will be placed on a waitlist. We will pull from our wait list for subsequent lottery drawings once the pool of applications received by the deadline is exhausted.
Lottery results will be sent by email in March. Students applying by the deadline will receive notice of their status at the parent/guardian email address provided on the application.
