Metropolitan Diploma Plus High School

Grades: 10-12

Our Insights

This is a transfer school. Transfer schools are designed for students who have dropped out or fallen behind in their credits.

Transfer schools often students mid-year or on a rolling basis. Apply to these schools directly, not through the regular high school admissions office. Some transfer schools are demanding, academically challenging schools that prepare students for college. Others focus on the basics: just getting students to graduate.

See our School Stats for information about safety, atmosphere and academics.

If you are a parent or staff member, please tell us more about the school in our Comments Section.
