MBA does not host “Meet the Teacher Night” or “Report Card Night.” Instead, we have Student-Led Conferences (SLC), which are set by appointment with your child’s advisor. A full explanation of SLCs is in our Parent Student Handbook and in the menu to the left.
Metropolitan runs on a trimester grading system. There are approximately twelve weeks in a trimester. Report cards will be mailed three times during the school year.
Every senior is required to deliver their 21st Century Portfolio Defense during the third trimester.
