Our Insights

What’s Special

Nice, modern facilities; solid record of achievement

The Downside

Limited art offerings

Queens Metropolitan High School is a neighborhood school with a high graduation rate that does a good job of serving a broad range of students while ensuring that all enjoy a well-rounded high school experience.

With roughly 1,100 students, Queens Metropolitan is big enough to offer a variety of courses, clubs and activities, but it also provides a more intimate environment than some of the massive high schools throughout Queens.

The school has a nice range of AP classes in English, Spanish, United States history, world history, government, calculus and biology. College Now classes are also offered at the school through a partnership with LaGuardia Community College.

Students may study French, Italian or Spanish. Arts courses are limited but include visual arts and theater. 

The school has a structured four-year college advisory program. Starting in 9th grade, students take weekly classes that focus on college preparation, search and applications, and everyone goes on at least one college visit each year. There are both free and fee-based SAT prep classes offered after school.

Queens Metropolitan shares its bright campus with Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School, a combined middle and high school. Each school has its own gym, library, cafeteria and dedicated entrance. They share the large auditorium and field combined PSAL sports teams. The building also houses PS Q233, a small program that serves students with severe disabilities.

Saida Rodriguez-Tabon became principal in 2017, coming from Stuyvesant High School, where she was an assistant principal of operations.

Queens Metropolitan opened in 2010 and graduated its first class in June 2014. Graduates are attending CUNY and SUNY colleges as well as some private schools.

SPECIAL EDUCATION: The school has ICT (integrated collaborative teaching) and self-contained classes as well as SETSS.

ADMISSIONS: Priority to students who live in the zone. Typically there is some space for students who don’t live in the zone, with priority going to Queens residents. (Laura Zingmond, interview and web reports, February 2018)
