The Met uses Schoology as its online grading and internal communication system. Students use Schoology to turn in work and receive grades. Students and parents can view their grades in real time on Schoology.
Every quarter students attending the Met are required to complete at least 10 hours of physical education, 10 hours of community service, read one book (or more depending on the year) and to attend one cultural event.
At the Met there are no bells; students learn to leave classes and move to their next classes without having to be directed externally by bells. Students address their teachers by their first names. Two days a week students work externally at an internship; during the three on site days, the students receive the more traditional high school curriculum but as much as possible in a hands on, project based environment.
The Met Sacramento is part of the Big Picture network. The curriculum is based on the 5 school wide learning goals that emphasize how to reason, to problem solve and to be cooperative members of a community. Students are expected to do thoughtful work in the 5 learning goals through rigorous project work.
The Met has an Early College High School partnership with Sacramento City College. Met students have the opportunity take college classes while in high school. Close to half of the students attending the Met take at least one SCC class before graduation.
The Met offers a credit recovery program for students who have fallen behind in their high school graduation and A-G requirements.
