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 the downtown grid at the corner of 8th and V streets across from Southside Park. Students at the Met work two days each week at internships in their interest areas. The Met is part of the Big Picture network (bigpicture.org). Because the school is small ( we average around 270 students) students at the Met are able to form close, meaningful relationships with both teachers and other students.
The advisory is the main academic center at The Met. Students stay in the same advisory for all four years with the same group of students and the same advisor (teacher). Advisors find educational resources for the students, assist them to target key academic learning goals, work with mentors to ensure the rigor of internships, and actively involve parents in their student's education. The advisory is more than just another classroom. Many students describe it as their second family.
Panther Pipeline is a dual-enrollment partnership program between the Met and Sacramento City College. Through this program, students can not only earn college credits while enrolled in high school. All Panther Pipeline classes are tuition-free. This is an excellent opportunity for students to take the next step in their educational careers.
A key part of our student's school experience is to explore their interests on Tuesdays and Thursdays through shadow days at local organizations and businesses, in the hopes of securing an internship that falls under their interest area.
It is important to note that Met students are not placed at internship sites. Students are to search for and secure their internship by following our process and expectations. If the site meets all Met requirements, they will be approved and may continue with the process.
The staff at the Met utilizes Schoology, a system that allows teachers and staff to create, manage, and share academic content. Nearly all student work is submitted electronically via Schoology. No more "lost" homework.
In addition to Schoology, the school also utilizes the Google Suite to communicate and store files over the internet.
An important component that sets the Met apart from other high schools is the Met series: Met 101-401. The Met series is designed to provide students with meaningful opportunities for engaging, learning, and reflecting beyond school hours.
The Met series includes attending cultural events, completing community service hours, reading for pleasure, and devoting time to their health and wellbeing.
