    "Picture a high school where the principle walks into your classroom with a Herry Potter robe wishing you a great day and a magical year the first day of school. A high school where teachers make jokes when you don't do your homework and give you candy when your having a hard time. This imaginary place is Metropolitan Arts Institute. Forget every negative quality you expect from a regular high school and turn it upside down and inside out. Then mold it into love because love is exactly what to expect to receive. In every lesson, test, friendship, teacher, and faculty. Everyone looks out for one another and every teacher knows you by name and knows exactly what to do to help you succeed. The only piece of metro I might change would be to sponsor more clubs and increase student community involvement."

    "This is not your typical school, in that little to no importance is placed in sports, academics, or overall student satisfaction. Its one saving grace is its arts programs, which have been suffering as of late at the end of the last school year, over half the faculty quit or was fired. The level of art produced by the students ranges from gallery-quality work to "doodle drawn on a napkin by a 3-year-old." At-large student body consumes more drugs and alcohol than average, and students whose capabilities are at a failing level are regularly passed. While advertised as a haven of tolerance and free-spiritedness, be warned, there is more to this school than meets the eye. Best advice: talk to current students or recent graduates before enrolling."

    "At Metro Arts we aren't your typical sports lovers, Pom Pom shakers, and chess club supporters. Metro celebrates with snapping to applaud our poets, critiquing our artists, and yelling "BRAVO" at our actors. Coming from a public school background to entering the world of charter school was a whole different experience I never thought I planned on loving. The teacher asked us to introduce ourselves. Listening to each person describe their story in a few short words, some kids were foster kids, and some were gay. One guy stood up and told the class he was transgender. After I spoke I sat down and examined the warm smiles, and from that point I knew I was in a place where I never had the fear to be outspoken again."

    "As I stepped through the halls of Metro Arts I knew that my trek through high school would be far from one's idea of a high school career. Not only do I attain academic material that will help me on in the future, but I get to pursue the dance calling I've been waiting to pick up. While I'd rather be in a public school with the rest of my familiar friends goofing off and having the actual high school experience, I realized that this school showcased that every student has potential in either an academic or art life work."

    "I have had amazing experiences at this school such as Peace Day, Field Day, Coffee House, and even First Friday! I would have never realized I was good at so many different art forms if I didn't make the choice to apply to this amazing school."
