RICM will once again partner with the MET school in Providence to provide internship opportunities for their students. The Met is a network of six small, public high schools located in Providence and Newport, Rhode Island. With high standards and strong family engagement, the Met’s individualized learning approach has proven successful in unlocking students’ passion for learning. The Met empowers its students to take charge of their learning, to become responsible citizens and life-long learners. The hallmarks of a Met education include internships, individual learning plans, advisory, and a breakthrough college transition program.
Advisors work with mentors such as RICM, parents and students to build a personalized curriculum around the students’ interests, searching out professionals in the community to pursue those interests in the real-world. Once at a site, students develop a rigorous project that they can work on with their mentor and back at school with their advisor. These projects become the foundation for the student’s learning plan and provide opportunities for the student to explore and master content, skills, and reasoning.
