Our mission is to provide students with educational opportunities designed to enrich their academic, personal and interpersonal experiences. It is our belief that the METCO experience should provide a strong academic foundation, as well as an environment rich of cultural, educational, ethnical and racial diversity.
The METCO project was established to provide the opportunity for children from racially-imbalanced schools in Boston and Children from isolated suburban schools to learn together in an integrated public school setting. METCO strives to increase the diversity and reduce the racial isolation in the receiving districts so that the students from different backgrounds can learn from each other in meaningful ways.The METCo program also provides closer understanding and cooperation between urban and suburban parents and other citizens in the Boston Metropolitan area.
