New High School - Coming Soon!

A Wonderful High School for our students is moving close to the Bayview!

Metropolitan Arts and Tech High School, or "Metro" for short, is a small, college preparatory, free charter public school that is moving to 400 Mansell St for the coming school year. The school will be sharing a campus with Philip and Sala Burton High School (formerly Woodrow Wilson High School) in the Portola/Visitacion Valley area, just a short trip from the Bayview area.

Metro has small class sizes, excellent teachers, nationally-recognized teaching methods, and a focus on arts and digital media, which is integrated into all of the subjects. All of the couses meet the requirements for admission to the University of California system. Metro is one of four Envision Schools, a Bay Area network of high-performing public charter high schools.

Many of our students are already coming from the Bayview District, including the son of Quesada Gardens member Nan Foster on Revere Ave.

And Metro still has a few spaces available in next years' ninth and tenth grade classes. So if you know of a student who is still looking for an excellent high school, bring them to an information session to find out more!

1616 20th St. (near Connecticut)
