Lower Academy (K-2)

Our lower academy supports scholars in kindergarten through the eighth grade. School is a place where we work, but it is also a place to feel safe and have fun. Children who feel secure love to learn, and therein lies the foundation for academic success.


About Us

MetLCS has engaging and rigorous learning experiences that consistently build the hearts and the minds of scholars to empower them to be leaders of their own education.
