In response to the increasing demand for online education, Metro Schools began offering support for home-based online learning in 2020. Initially designed as a complement to the traditional in-person classes, our program evolved to meet the growing needs of students. Recognizing the significance of this shift, Metro Schools received approval from the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) to operate a complete online school. This approval allowed us to provide a comprehensive online learning experience, ensuring that we can better cater to the diverse needs of our students, adapting to the changing educational landscape.
