TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE SCHOOL

Built on a 21,000 square meter plot in New Cairo, Metropolitan School is creatively designed to engage your child’s curiosity while encouraging a love of learning.  Designed by the architectural firm ECG, the building incorporates the latest philosophy in building design and technology.  All classrooms have been fitted with cooled fresh air diffusers to reduce the transmission of disease. Our focus on health in the building extends to the flooring and furniture, which are made using anti-bacterial materials.

The safety of your child is something we take very seriously. Fireproofed cables, conduits, and wall sealing constructed to contain a fire for two hours are installed throughout the building. Together, with an extensive smoke detection system and our evacuation policy, all is in place to protect your child in the unlikely event of an incident.

Metropolitan School is WIFI enabled throughout the campus and each classroom is equipped with a smartboard.

Our PreK and Kindergarten building is designed with interactive spaces inside, as well as outside playing areas. This was an intentional design plan to encourage students to learn through play. This space provides an environment for young children to learn to take appropriate risks, practice cooperation, learn teamwork, and further develop their fine and gross motor skills, all done while playing in this purpose-built space.

Spacious classrooms have a reading corner designed to foster a love of books. Children are encouraged to spend time there each day.

Special Rooms for pretend play, art, cooking, and music are designed to encourage young children to widen their interests and develop new talents.

LIBRARY

Stocked with hundreds of books, our School Library is a contemporary space designed to engage your child and encourage hands-on learning.

According to the American Common Core Handbook, research has shown that “students in schools with good school libraries learn more, get better grades, and score higher on standardized tests than their peers in schools without libraries.” (Model School Library Standards for California Public Schools, vi)

Metropolitan’s School Library is currently growing and expanding to meet the needs of our growing school population. Already stocked with a sizable collection of books, our Library is a welcoming space designed to engage your child and encourage hands on learning. Along with the Library resources and a Guided Reading Program, there is room to accommodate classes for circle time, center work, and literacy-based activities. Students from pre-kindergarten and up have scheduled visits to the Library where they receive standards-based lessons on themes such as book care, and research, and are exposed to different types of literature.

Students are able to select and take home books during their scheduled class time as well as during Open Library Hours. Not only is this an exercise in exploration and independence, but the students also have a chance to practice responsible use and care of all learning resources. When Library classes are not in session, the room is a calm place for staff and students to relax and delve into their favorite literature.

HEALTH 

The health and well-being of every child in our school are of paramount importance. We have a clinic managed by a full-time qualified doctor who works actively with parents and teachers to understand and meet the medical needs of our students. In addition to the daily care given, multiple health awareness campaigns for parents, students, and staff are conducted throughout the year. Some of these have included a healthy food campaign, pneumonia awareness, anemia awareness camp, and First Aid sessions.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Studies show that physical activity contributes to improved academic performance. Regular activity during the school day is strongly associated with higher concentration levels as well as more directed, composed behavior. A key component of our Physical Education program is developing the student holistically, so they can become outstanding athletes and sportsmen/women who take both winning and losing gracefully. The focus for early year students is to ensure they have a positive outlook about physical activity and sport, to give them the best possible foundation for lifelong participation in physical activity. For the elementary-age students, the program goals are to make sure the students’ perceptions of physical activity remain the same while at the same time, developing and learning new skills which are focused more on individual sports, and endurance and strength-building activities. Our state-of-the-art facilities include two heated indoor pools; one learner size, the other competition size, and a specialist gym.  There are smaller elementary soccer pitches and multi-purpose courts designed to suit the needs of our younger students. As the school expands, we will continue to add further facilities to include a full-size soccer pitch and a specialist gym for Middle and High school students.
