"MBA is an honorable institution of learning, enrichment, and inclusivity as well as an invaluable community partner in promoting GLSEN's overall mission of safe schools for all students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/ expression... Please regard Metropolitan Business Academy as one of GLSEN Connecticut's most powerful and invaluable partners in the shared goal of making schools safer for all students." Alberto Cifuentes, Jr., MSW, Professional Development & Community Outreach Coordinator for GLSEN Connecticut

"Student led conferences take the place of report card nights and our children present a summary of their work.  This makes them think critically about their present and their future, and we’ve watched our son grow in his ability to synthesize information as a result.  The teachers communicate with us easily and are always accessible, collaborating with our son and us to create the best academic program for him... SPMT gives me the chance to sit at the table with teachers and administrators as they strive to create the best learning environment possible given the constraints of budget, and of multiple different students from the gamut of socioeconomic situations. I have truly been impressed with the dedication, the interest, the attention to detail, and the creativity with which they approach their work. I see educators who truly have the best interests of each and every student at heart. " Mary Z., MBA Parent of a Senior

"Canal Dock Boathouse, Inc., a CT non-profit corporation, endeavors to provide, among other activities, non-motorized boating opportunities for public school students in the City of New Haven. Through a partnership with Metropolitan Business Academy, CDBi was able to launch its first initiative in the fall of 2014. By working together in the 2014-2015 school year dozens of students put their hands on rowing machines for the first time. Only through working with the supportive and dedicated MBA administrators and teachers has CDBi been able to successfully launch these new initiatives in New Haven. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship with MBA and hopefully expand our offerings to other activities and to more students." John Pescatore, President of Canal Dock Boathouse, Inc. (CDBi)
