Students in the Elite FOCUS (Foundation to Optimize Careers Unique to Sports) program at Metropolitan Business Academy were interviewed by the New Haven Register in an article entitled “New Haven Mentors Work to Save Lives”.
Our goal is for students to learn about the dynamic people and groups in our city that have taken on the work of directly addressing community issues. New Haven is rich with individuals and organizations working to address issues regarding housing conditions, healthcare, education, children, violence prevention, addiction, nutrition, local foods, animal treatment, the environment, and civil rights.
If you are interested in presenting, we would ask that you share with our students how they can also participate in change efforts. Bring video clips, photos, or simply bring your team and the stories of the work your organization does and the difference you make in the community.
By participating in this program, you will:
Raise awareness around issues about which you are passionate
Share your work with students who may be able to benefit from your services
Meet the future workforce and recruit for internships where possible
If you are able to participate, we ask that you give the same presentation four times to four different groups of students. The sessions last approximately 30 minutes including time for questions and answers.
Your child’s advisor will be contacting you to make an appointment. If you do not hear from your child’s advisor by September 27th, please call the main office: 203-497-7700.
Student Led Conferences are fifteen minute meetings, facilitated by your child, where he or she can report academic progress and present his or her plan to improve grades or remain on track for the remainder of the marking period. As always, our goal is 100% completion for student led conferences. Metropolitan has been able to achieve between 92% and 98% parent involvement since the institution of student led conferences. High parent engagement has a positive effect on student achievement.
Parents of Metropolitan students commit to participating in 3 student led conferences per year.
Our goal is for every child at Metropolitan to participate in at least one after school program. When students participate in after-school activities, they build new friendships while learning important life skills, such as teamwork, integrity, creativity, compassion for others and commitment to the task no matter how hard it gets.
