School Leadership Team


We believe in the right of each individual student to receive a comprehensive, challenging, age appropriate and personally relevant education, ensuring access to the grade level curriculum supported through the Expanded Forerunners of the Creative Curriculum, NC Extended Content Standards, NC Extended Common Core State Standards, North Carolina Extended Essential Standards, Life Skills Curriculum, and district goals and objectives, using current research and materials to support the development of instruction that is based on the analysis of student data and best practices.

We believe in the dignity of each student, and the right to be treated at all times with respect, in a safe, caring, and orderly school environment where behaviors are taught using positive interventions.

We believe that every student has the competency to learn skills that are personally relevant to his or her needs and support the grade level curriculum.

We believe in the collective strength of Metro School personnel, Professional Learning Communities, students and families, community partnerships and volunteers, and the leadership of CMS to assure equity in services and resources, high standards of instruction, and the provisions of quality programming at Metro School.

We believe in the provision of professional development to support all faculty in assuring that staff is prepared to provide Metro School students with comprehensive, challenging, age appropriate, personally relevant instruction to access grade level curriculum.


District:  Maximize academic achievement by every student in every school.

School:  Metro School will provide a comprehensive personally relevant educational environment challenging each student to develop his or her abilities, skills and talents by providing instruction that assures access to the grade level curriculum including access to general curriculum materials and resources. Metro faculty, parents, and caregivers will work together improve the community’s focus on our students’ capabilities and integrate our students’ into our larger community so that they may lead productive and fulfilling lives.


We, the parents, staff and community of Metro School will work collaboratively to provide our students a high quality, challenging, and personally relevant education, with a specialized emphasis on providing them the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to be successful and productive members of our global community
