Tulsa MET Jr. High and High School is a Big Picture Learning School that serves students who have been unsuccessful in a traditional school setting. We focus on providing the necessary supports and skills to students which permits them to reach beyond themselves to discover their passions and interests.
Tulsa MET students are unique, creative and adventurous. To meet their needs, we offer a rigorous highly personalized curriculum that combines academic work with real-world experiences and project-based learning. Each student’s education is designed with their interests in mind and includes input from the student, advisor, core teachers, parents, and mentors. It also meets the academic requirements of Tulsa Public Schools and the state of Oklahoma. Students earn the credits they need to graduate by investigating their interests academically and presenting their work in student led exhibitions each nine weeks.
The foundation of our program is the advisory structure. Upon enrollment, students become members of an advisory. This group becomes their family while in school. Each advisory is led by an advisor who meets with a group of 15-17 students twice per day throughout the school year. It is in this advisory that students discover their passions, receive support, investigate career interests, and determine their learning styles. They also work on projects focused on their interests while also earning the academic credit they need to graduate.
Students in grades 10-12 at Tulsa MET participate in Learning through Internship (LTI) opportunities. An LTI is a real world learning opportunity provided to our students which allows them to investigate possible career paths and volunteer in the community on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the school year. Each student has a professional mentor who assists them at their internship and with the learning project associated with their internships.
