Metropolis Elementary promotes college readiness within our students.  No longer will the question be, "Am I going to college?" but, "Where do I want to go to college?".  The initiative focuses on encouragement of higher education through exposure to universities.  Mrs. Hicks's class is a  proud sponsor of U of L. Go Cards!
