"Starting this fall, middle-school students from across central Ohio can apply to attend Ohio’s original science- and math-focused school.
Metro Early College High School, which had served only Franklin County high-school students until this school year, is expanding its program to serve students in grades 6 through 8 in and around Franklin County.
“We feel like adding the younger kids and innovating the middle-school experience can help us broaden our footprint,” said Principal Aimee Kennedy, who sent a letter to parents about the expansion on Monday.
Metro, which currently serves about 400 students in grades 9 through 12, is in its first year as an independent STEM school."
