Student Fees

Student Fee - Due Beginning of Each School Year

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

Parents will be notified when fees can be paid for the new school year. Amounts are as follows based on family income (submitted on the Free/Reduced Meal form):

  • High School - $150 full pay, $75 for students who qualify for reduced price meals, $0 for students who qualify for free meals

  • Middle School - $50 full pay, $25 for students who qualify for reduced price meals, $0 for students who qualify for

    free meals

Qualifying for Reduced Fees

Student fees will be reduced if your family qualifies for Free/Reduced lunch.

The Free/Reduced Lunch Application must be completed each year; qualifying one year does not carry over to the next year. 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 eligible for other fee reductions and waivers, which are not accessible without a current application on file at the beginning of the school year. This includes waivers for college applications and college entrance exams. Having an application on file also helps Metro qualify for funding to serve economically disadvantaged students.

Completed forms should be returned at the Metro front desk or to Metro Business Manager Kathy Fries at fries@themetroschool.org. Only one form is needed per family (list all of your students on the same form).

Submitting Payment

In Person: Payment can be made at Metro using cash, check or money order. You can request a receipt for your cash payment at the front desk.
