Tulsa MET JH & HS

Relationships: It's Who We Are. It's What We Do!

Tulsa MET JH & HS 2021-2022

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.
