Internships are a large part of our curriculum. Since 2003 our students have gone on thousands of shadow days and have had thousands of internships.
The Met has a long standing partnership with Panther Pipeline, allowing students to take college classes while in high school
The advisory is the center and core of the Met program, allowing a close relationship between student and teachers and helping keep a small student to teacher ratio.
COME AND VISIT US
Because the Met is such a unique educational program and environment, we ask students to come for a shadow day before enrolling. This is highly recommended though it is not a requirement. We have several days each year designated as shadow days. Click the image to the right to sign up for a shadow day.
What is the Met?
The Met Sacramento is one of the Sacramento City Unified School District’s small innovative public charter schools. We are located in one corner of the downtown grid at of 8th and V streets across from South Side Park. Students at the Met work two days every week at internships in their interest areas in the local community. The Met is part of The Big Picture network of more than 100 schools worldwide (bigpicture.org). At the Met we believe that Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships are prerequisites to authentic educational experiences. Because the school is small (average 300 students) students at the Met form close relationships with other students and their teachers, relationships that often last long after the student has graduated.
