Head of School, Matthew Baker recently quoted in Forbes magazine

The article in Forbes Magazine focuses on college admissions and the stresses and mental challenges that are facing students as they think about the transition to college. Metro Arts was the first school in the valley to use the Project Wayfinder curriculum for seniors and more recently the Belonging curriculum for Freshman. We are trying to equip our students not just to get into college but to thrive once they get there.

Quarter 2 Update from Metro Arts

Metro Arts continues to be committed to the health and safety of all students and staff. Therefore, our Governing Board has decided to stay online with virtual learning for the Second Quarter. Our decision was determined by guidance provided by the CDC and the Governor's office.

7/15/20 Metro Arts School Update


Good Afternoon, Students and Families,

We hope this message finds you safe and healthy. We wanted to provide you with a brief update for beginning school at Metro.

Earlier today, the Governor met with educational leaders, and the Arizona Department of Education also provided schools with an overview of guidelines. We are still expecting further guidance from the State as we finalize our plans.

Although we had planned on communicating full details today, we are incorporating today’s recent updates from the State into our plans.

We look forward to providing you with a full update tomorrow.

Thank you for your support.
