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 will be February 17. All students applying by deadline will be included in the lottery for open seats. After that date, you may still submit an application, which will be placed on a wait list. We will pull from our wait list for subsequent lottery drawings once the pool of applications received by deadline is exhausted.
Lottery results will be sent by email in March. Students applying by deadline will receive notice of their status at the parent/guardian email address provided on the application.
