The fact that Metro remains a family even after you graduate is what stands out the most in my opinion. I remember being in grade seven, sitting in class and an old student walking into the class and the teachers face lighting up because they were so excited to see a student from the past. Throughout my years at Metro this happened more and soon I got to know the alumni. Being an alumni now, I love going back to visit and see the younger grades, knowing that they are getting the education I got and get to experience all the Metro has to offer. The parents are involved in the school life, being a student there, I got to know my fellow classmates' parents. I do keep in contact with many of the students who went there during my time at Metro. They are all like my brothers and sisters and although our lives are very different now, I know that they are always people I will have in my life and I am immensely grateful for them all. We all grew up together in a sense, and we will continue to grow together.
