About Metro Schools

Metro is the first STEM school established in and accredited by the state of Ohio. Metro Early College High School opened its doors in 2006 and expanded to include grades 6-8 with the opening of the middle school in 2013. We now serve over 900 students, proving year after year that STEM education is a crucial foundation for success in a multitude of fields, especially the growing needs identified in our region.

In 2022, Metro began formal plans to expand programming to include elementary grades. In the next two years, Metro will engage in a renovation project to open a new location in the former Indianola Middle School building east of The Ohio State University campus. Once the project is complete, Metro Schools will have the capacity to more than double enrollment and serve area students in grades K-12 on two campuses.

At Metro, we aim to consistently show students the extent of their skills and how they are capable of developing their talents into productive achievements. Metro is designed to provide students multiple opportunities to discover these talents in collaboration with business and higher education partners around Central Ohio. Through project-based learning and real-world experiences, we hope to equip all students for success in reaching their college and career aspirations. In reciprocity, our greater community can benefit from the return on investment through a more competent infusion of talent in our work force.

Your gift makes a difference in continuing the mission and tradition of sharing the very best in STEM Education and the concept of Mastery with a growing and diverse population of students. Your active partnership can provide students with the experiences they need to make positive contributions in their chosen field.

On behalf of the students, faculty, alumni and staff of Metro Schools,
