About Us

San Diego Metropolitan Regional, Career, and Technical High School (known affectionately as "The Met") is a public, innovative, student-centered school in the San Diego Unified School District, and part of the Big Picture Learning network. At the Met, we believe that every student has unique interests, skills, and learning styles, and as such, our teachers focus on "one student at a time," building a close relationship with each student and truly personalizing each student's educational path. We are located on the campus of San Diego Mesa College, and we leverage our strong relationship with Mesa to provide students with unparalleled college access and preparation.

We are distinguished by our three pillars:

1. Advisory - Every student joins an Advisory when they enter the Met. This is a tightly knit cohort of about 15 to 20 students who work with the same advisor throughout their time at the Met. This provides the space to build a family atmosphere, and allows advisors to understand the student's interests and needs, which leads to authentically personalized learning for the student.

2. Internships - Every student (grades 9-12) has an internship, which is our "classroom in the community." Internships serve as the basis of career exploration and work experience. Students choose internships based on their interests, and develop strong relationships with mentors who are professionals and experts in their field.
