School Reviews

Dear Facultyof Metro Catholic, I want to thank all of the teachers, staff, and especially Sister Anne for making these last 8 years TRUELLY memorable.I recommend this school highly. As my children venture on to new paths I know that with your help and nurturing they leave with values and self-confidence that will carry them through adulthood. Metro Catholic really does connect with respect. Sincerely, Teresa Spooner
