Our History

Metro Early College High School

Established in 2006, Metro Early College High School was born out of the desire of both the Ohio State University and Battelle to create a “small” STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) school with a “big footprint.” Made possible through the facilitation and network of the Educational Council, Metro is the platform school for The Ohio STEM Learning Network (OSLN), and was the first higher education (The Ohio State University), business (Battelle Memorial Institute), and K-12 partnership for STEM learning in Ohio.


Metro Early College Middle School

In the fall of 2013, Metro piloted a Middle School program with 100 students. This middle school pilot was born out of a desire to have a greater impact on incoming high school students. The plan, which has been extremely successful, was to close or lessen gaps in student learning prior to high school enrollment.

The 2014-2015 school year began with full implementation of grades 6-8. Spring OAA results for the pilot group of students were very promising. Thanks to an extremely dedicated staff, outstanding parents, and highly engaged student body, the future for Metro Middle School and ultimately Metro Early College High School looks very bright.
