About Our School

The Metropolitan School of Panama is an international school in Panama City that offers a world-class academic program to students in Early Childhood 3 through 12th grade. 

A World Class School in Panama

With more than 775 students hailing from 45 different nationalities and 125 faculty members that boast an impressive range of international teaching experience, the school is enriched by the wealth of its diverse and multicultural community.


The school was founded in 2011. Since then, our school 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 73 other outstanding schools in 30 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.

The Metropolitan School of Panama's educational approach centers on developing the whole child. The MET's program combines rigorous academics with visual and performing arts, cutting edge technology, competitive sports, social awareness, as well as physical and emotional well-being. Beyond academic preparation, the MET instills values and civic responsibilities with the aims of raising global citizens who will be committed to building a more sustainable world.

Within the first three years, the MET made an extraordinary achievement earning status as an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School, a community of international schools with the reputation of delivering the highest standards of education. In its fourth year, the MET became the first and only school in Panama and Central America to offer the IB Continuum, receiving authorization to offer the IB Primary Years Program (PYP), Middle Years Program (MYP) and Diploma Program (DP). There are only 368 schools in the world authorized to offer the IB Continuum, positioning the MET within an elite group of schools worldwide.

The IB is a world acclaimed academic program with innovative teaching methodologies that allows the development of intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills necessary to learn, work and succeed in a rapidly globalizing world. The IB curriculum has been so successful, that it is considered a point of reference for excellence by the best universities worldwide.
