What Our Parents Say

Read some of the experiences of MET parents as they joined our learning community.

Davy S.

Parent of Early Childhood and Elementary students

"We have been at the MET since November 2015. Our two boys are presently in 1st and 2nd Grade. We were very pleased from the very beginning with the efficiency throughout the application and enrollment process. The environment is very welcoming, safe and friendly. Our experiences with the MET team from the front desk staff, to our children's classroom teachers and primary school principal has been nothing but excellent. It’s so amazing that they even know our children by their names."

Our children wake up eager and happy to go to school each morning and they both love their teachers. We undoubtedly see them develop day by day, not only academically but socially. We feel truly blessed to be a part of this international family. Davy S.

"The communication between the school, the teachers and the parents through the MET Weekly newsletter, the MET Parent Magazine, our parents whatsapp group and weekly updates from our classroom teachers is really great - there is no way you can miss any school updates. 

Our children wake up eager and happy to go to school each morning and they both love their teachers. We undoubtedly see them develop day by day, not only academically but socially. Coming from a different country with a very different culture, the MET family has made us feel welcomed and comfortable. We feel truly blessed to be a part of this international family."

Hildegard V.

Parent of three Middle School students

"When we first arrived at the MET looking for a different education for our children, we were not clear on what type of education we wanted for them, but we did think a change was needed. We came for an interview as a family and for the first time felt like family and education could be linked and considered important. We were instantly embraced into a culture of values, leadership, a caring environment and high educational standards."

Learning that students are the ones in charge of their own path, and that we adults just act as enablers, was the most important lesson early on. This is what the MET is; a family with a common goal: preparing our children for the future. Hildegard V.

"Our previous educational experience had been of traditional schooling and adapting initially was confusing, especially for us as parents. Learning that students are the ones in charge of their own path, and that we adults just act as enablers, was the most important lesson early on. Today we see the results of an all encompassing educational philosophy. Having one daughter go through her MYP Personal Project and two go through their PYP Exhibition, have been incredible lessons of the power of integrating community service with learning and sense of achievement.

I enjoy Parent-Teacher consultation day because we get to develop a relationship with all the teachers. Discussing one-on-one goals, ideas and results, give us a clear sense on how our children are doing at school, beyond their grades. Teachers at the MET are always aware that their student is not a number or a file but an inquiring individual that requires support and guidance on whatever endeavor or exploration they want to undertake. Our children not only love but admire their teachers and seem to have special connections with many of them.

We are a Panamanian family and thus were not prone to suffer new country and new school anxiety. That being said, our family was full of the anxiety of newness. The moment our daughters walked into the classroom though students, teachers, staff and parents were all ready to receive us all with open arms. This is what the MET is; a family with a common goal: preparing our children for the future."

Alice C.

Parent of Elementary and Middle School students

"We moved to Panama last year and our children started their journey in Grade 7 and Kinder at the MET right away."

We have been very pleased by the attention and guidance given by the MET’s team during the admission period and prior to the start of the school year. This is very comforting and pleasant when making such a tough transition. Alice C.

"The children have adapted very well and feel happy at the MET. Our daughter in Kinder did not speak any English before she started, but is now fluent and is already reading English books! Our son has embraced the IB methodology and is progressing really well. We are pleased with the quality of education and effort the school is putting in. 

The interaction with the teachers is on a regular basis and personal level. If you ask our son, the best part was probably the week-long Passport Adventures trip to Cerro Punta - he loved it! It allowed him to get to know his classmates better, and helped his adaptation process, while learning more about the beautiful country of Panama."
