First Graduating Class
On June 12, 2010 the school celebrated the graduation of its first class of students. The first Junior & Senior Prom was held at Franklin Park Conservatory, a partner with Metro and a learning center for students to take botany and other classes not offered in the Metro building. The school's graduation was held at COSI Columbus, also one of learning centers for Metro. Dr. Gene Harris, Superintendent of Columbus City Schools gave a speech to the graduating class along with Mr. Rich Rosen, Vice President of Education & Philanthropy at Battelle. Dr. E. Gordon Gee gave a speech to the students as well to prepare them for the next years at college. A large majority of the graduating seniors will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall, and many others will be attending universities and colleges across the United States.
