  • Reviewed by Former Student on November 01, 2009
  • Rating: 5 (5 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • I, being an alumni of Metcalfe Academy, can say that this school has teachers who really care about their students and are well equipped and qualified in preparing their students for high school. I am currently a Junior in high school and looking back on my Metcalfe experience I can honestly say that graduating from 8th grade I couldn't have been more prepared! Every since my freshman year I have remained in the top 5% of my class. Metcalfe certainly does not get the recognition that they deserve for being such a superb learning foundation for students.
