At a glance
Tulsa MET stands for "Tulsa Metropolitan Middle School and High School". We are called metropolitan because we accept students from all across Tulsa Public Schools in grades 6-12 who want a positive change from their regular schools.
Tulsa MET is a transformative school. We change lives.
- Students with low grades have a chance to improve;
- Students who are anxious at school come to Tulsa MET and feel safe;
- Students can come to Tulsa MET and start to love learning again; and
- Students at Tulsa MET are welcomed into an inclusive environment.
We start every day with a positive and interactive relationship between each student and their individual advisor. Our advisors work to build a safe and open relationship with each student through hands-on activities and lessons that kick start and feed the mind. We pair a student with an advisor who will follow and support them for many consecutive years to help them master and become confident in project-based learning, collaborative ideas, and student-led free thinking.
Project Bike Tech
At Tulsa MET High School, our faculty develops interdisciplinary units to show students the connections between their core and elective courses. The students further develop their understanding when internships are incorporated into the interdisciplinary units. Tulsa MET junior high provides students the opportunity to work on projects that interest the student. Students are allowed to learn using various methods and strategies. Teachers guide the students to make connections in their learning during the development of the project.
Exhibitions of Learning
Tulsa MET Middle School and High School is as unique as our student body. Our faculty understands that our students are creative, passionate, and have interests outside of school. Students are more than a test score. At the end of each semester, Tulsa MET students demonstrate their academic understanding through "Exhibitions of Learning". During the exhibitions of learning, students are free to demonstrate the knowledge they have gained through academic courses during a presentation to their Advisory class, with their families in attendance. The exhibition allows students to work on skills they will need throughout college, career, and life; such as, public speaking, organizational skills, problem solving, and critical thinking.
In addition to our Internship Program on the academic side, TulsaMET believes that each child learns through different facets. With that, we allow our students the freedom to create and express themselves as they desire. Our onsite Community Garden is a perfect way to incorporate the 'hands-on' aspect. Each time they discover a new blooming fruit or vegetable, it is like a work of art for them and proof of success! Getting involved with our Tulsa Community is also another way to help our students take the initiative to give back and become innovative free-thinkers!
AT Tulsa MET HIGH SCHOOL, STUDENTS CAN:
- Gain real-world experience through off-campus internships;
- Build meaningful connections with their teachers and peers, helping them to stay engaged and on track to graduate; and
- Learn in small-class settings with highly personalized instruction designed to meet their individual needs.
Tulsa MET allows me to get out of the classroom and building. I am able to work with a mentor, in an internship during my junior and senior year. The school and advisors are always searching for ways to help students learn in ways that are best for us. We have small classes and I am able to spend quality instructional time with my teachers.Tulsa Met High School student

Welcome to Tulsa MET Junior High & High School! I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Valarie Farrow and I am the principal of this amazing school! I have been in education since 1991 serving several smaller districts across northeastern Oklahoma, prior to landing in the Tulsa Public School district in 2004. My first position in Tulsa Public Schools was as a physical education teacher at Hale High School. After two years as a teacher (and upon completion of my administrative degree) I became an attendance dean at Hale. In 2008, I became the assistant principal at Carver Middle School. After eight and a half years at Carver, I transferred to Rogers Junior High & High School as an assistant principal for the next two years. In 2017, I had a wonderful opportunity to work in the Design and Innovation Lab in Tulsa Public Schools, during the inception of reimaging what high school should look and feel like for today’s students. When the principal position came open here at Tulsa MET, I was fortunate enough to be hired to work with a wonderful faculty, staff, and students! I look forward to serving the Tulsa MET family, as we utilize social-emotional learning skills, coupled with career/college/life skills for our students to be best prepared for their futures!
