Annual Student Fees

Parents will be notified when fees can be paid for the new school year.

Student Fees due in August

All Metro students are required to pay student fees each year as part of the annual registration process. Fees are due in August and are non-negotiable and not refundable.  Student fees replace all previous program fees, technology fees, senior dues, etc. 

Amounts are:

  • High School - $200 per student
  • Middle School - $100 per student

Qualifying for Reduced Student Fees

Student fees will be reduced by half if your family qualifies for Free/Reduced lunch. Reduced fees are:

  • High School - $100 per child
  • Middle School - $50 per child

The Free/Reduced Lunch Application must be completed each year to be approved for reduced fees; qualifying one year does not carry over to the next year. You may pay the reduced fee price when submitting the F/R application. You will receive notification of your status once your application is reviewed.

Please submit an application for your household even if your child(ren) will not eat meals at school. Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch may be able to access other fee reductions and waivers, which will not be accessible without a current application on file.

Online: Parents can pay their child's student fee online by using our EZ-Pay system. Instructions to set up an EZ-Pay account can be found here.
