The school was founded in 2011 and since, has become the top private school in Panama. The MET was founded with a vision of creating an international school of excellence, staffed with the best teachers, with small class sizes, and where each child would feel included, happy, motivated and inspired to learn.
In September 2017, the Metropolitan School of Panama joined Nord Anglia Education (NAE), the world's leading schools organization, uniting with 69 other outstanding schools in 29 countries around the world. Nord Anglia’s global family of schools share a common commitment and philosophy that there is no limit to what its students can achieve.
Joining Nord Anglia Education allows the MET to participate in premium collaborations with leading educational institutions around the world such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), The Juilliard School, UNICEF and King's College London. These programs will not only enhance learning opportunities for students in the performing arts and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math), but also offer teachers a unique opportunity for professional development.
