Metz Elementary

Achieving Excellence

Hello Metz families,


  It is most definitely a great time to be a student at Metz Elementary.  We’ve had a very exciting year so far with many opportunities for our students.  Our focus is always on providing a quality education, however, we also believe in the experience of our students.  This philosophy can be found in our shared vision and in all we do here at Metz.


Your involvement in your child’s education makes a big difference and we welcome that involvement.  We have an active parent leadership team that meets several times a week.  We also offer English, sewing, Zumba, nutrition and art classes for adults during the school day. 


Next year, we will be adding a preschool class as well!  We are already open for enrollment for grades preschool through 5th. If you are interested in touring or visiting our school, please call and ask for Jason.  He would be happy to set this up and let you know more about the great educational experience Metz can offer for your child.
