A School of Excellence
For the third time, Metro Tech High School earned the A+ School of Excellence Award from the Arizona Educational Foundation in 2022. The A+ designation covers a three-year period ending in 2023. The Arizona Educational Foundation recognized Metro Tech, along with 20 other public schools, as a recipient of the coveted designation on February 8, 2022.
To qualify as an A+ School of Excellence, schools must show their uniqueness and demonstrate high or significantly improved achievement scores. Then, a rigorous 2-day site visit is conducted by a panel of principals and assistant principals from other A+ schools who observe every classroom and interview students, parents, teachers, support staff, and the administration team. Schools are evaluated in the areas of student focus and support, school culture, active teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership, community and parent involvement and assessment data.
Metro Tech High School is the only Phoenix Union high school to achieve three consecutive A+ recognitions. It is a well-deserved honor, and the students, staff, parents, community members, and administration are to be commended on their work to make this award a reality.
