Welcome to the Tulsa MET JH & HS newsletter for 2019-2020!

In this section you will find important information from the principal, Valarie Farrow. This is my second year leading the "best kept secret in Tulsa Public Schools, Tulsa MET!

I do want to take a moment and welcome the new students and families who have joined the Tulsa MET JH & HS community! I am excited to see all of the new students grow and learn during their time at Tulsa MET!

We do have a few new members of the Tulsa MET faculty and staff this year. Ms. Erin Ackley is the new ESS teacher at the high school, coming to us from thirteen previous years of teaching in the Union and Owasso districts. Mrs. Seretha Pavey transferred to Tulsa MET from Rogers and has taken over the high school math classes. Seretha has spent her entire career, over 20 years, in Tulsa Public Schools. Another change is to our front office. Joining us from the former Gilcrease Elementary is Ms. Gwendolyn Morris. Please make sure to meet all of these wonderful ladies on your next visit to Tulsa MET!

We are still currently working to hire a junior high social studies teacher and English Language Learner teacher. In the meantime, Mrs. Lynn McKinney and Mrs. Liz Benavides are assisting us, while taking time out of their district level offices. We appreciate both of you!

Our teachers and students are excited with some of the new opportunities we have available this year! Ask your seventh through tenth grade students about Youth Entrepreneurs, or as we call it YE! Additionally, we have a new Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math-STEM lab for our junior high students.Two more opportunities provide several of our ninth and tenth grade students the opportunity for a "soft" internship, in the school, before their junior year internship out of the building. The first opportunity is in the Bike Shop, where students will learn how to perform maintenance on bicycles. The second opportunity is in the Instructional Technology-IT Repair Room, where several Tulsa MET students will repair all of our Chromebooks! A final opportunity is for Tulsa MET students of all ages; our new eSports Club! We will be sharing more information about all of these opportunities in upcoming editions of our newsletter, as well as on all of our social media sites! Stay tuned!

Please reach out to your students teacher, advisor, or either administrator if you have questions or concerns!

About Tulsa MET JH & HS

Since 2008, Tulsa MET JH & HS has provided a solid foundation of Relationships, Relevance, and Rigor to the students who have walked our hallways. Originally Tulsa MET was founded as a "Big Picture Learning School" and many of the best practices are still used by our experienced faculty.

Each student is assigned an advisor (teacher) who they see on a daily basis. The advisor (and all adults in the building) develop lasting relationships with each of the students in their advisory. From developing the relationships, our faculty is able to connect with each student (due to a small student-teacher ratio) and ensure that students develop relevant and attainable goals for their present learning, as well as their future careers. Tulsa MET faculty hold our students to high expectations and rigorous academic standards. Focusing on summative assessments is replaced at Tulsa MET by formative assessment of student competency in all coursework.

Desde 2008, Tulsa MET JH & HS ha proporcionado una base sólida de Relaciones, Relevancia y Rigor a los estudiantes que han caminado por nuestros pasillos. Originalmente, Tulsa MET fue fundada como una "Escuela de Aprendizaje de Imagen Grande" y muchas de las mejores prácticas aún son utilizadas por nuestro cuerpo docente experimentado.

A cada estudiante se le asigna un asesor (maestro) a quien ven diariamente. El asesor (y todos los adultos en el edificio) desarrollan relaciones duraderas con cada uno de los estudiantes en su asesoramiento. Desde el desarrollo de las relaciones, nuestra facultad puede conectarse con cada estudiante (debido a una pequeña proporción de estudiantes por maestro) y asegurar que los estudiantes desarrollen metas relevantes y alcanzables para su aprendizaje actual, así como sus carreras futuras. El profesorado de Tulsa MET mantiene a nuestros estudiantes con altas expectativas y estándares académicos rigurosos. El enfoque en las evaluaciones sumativas se reemplaza en Tulsa MET por la evaluación formativa de la competencia del estudiante en todos los cursos.

Tulsa MET Mission

The mission of the Tulsa Met JH & HS is to sustain a thriving collaborative learning community which provides equitable learning opportunities for all students.
