IB DP Curriculum Coordinator and DP History Teacher
"One thing that immediately stood out to me regarding the programs at the MET, is the expectation for student engagement and action. Teachers set high expectations for their students and structure supportive learning experiences to help students stretch and grow. More importantly, the students set high expectations for themselves, and demonstrate the skills and attitudes necessary to meet or exceed those goals in the classroom and in the community. As an authorized IB World School offering the Diploma Program, these high expectations are set not only for academics, but for students’ personal development as well.
The Diploma Program features rigorous academics, with the Extended Essay and Theory of Knowledge course providing students with unique intellectual opportunities. However, it is the emphasis on developing habits and skills, thinking conceptually, and taking action based on your learning that separates the Diploma Program from other college preparatory courses.
In the digital information age, knowledge by itself has little value. Students must be able to process, evaluate, synthesize, and apply their learning in new contexts."
