Principal’s Message

Students and Parents:

Welcome to the 2021–22 school year at Metter High School! 

As a school community, we strive to create an environment that respects the diversity of our students and encourages all students to challenge themselves to reach their fullest potential. Success in high school requires some thoughtful planning and commitment. Hard work and regular attendance are a must as well as participation in extracurricular activities. Researchers have noted that the most important thing parents/guardians can do for their child’s education is to take an active interest in their child’s schooling. When parents are involved in students’ education, the children do better in school. We as a school community look forward to sharing in your successes. My best wishes for a rewarding year filled with great achievements.
