Clubs and Activities
Clubs take place once a week after school and are developed based on student and staff interest. Specific clubs have included basketball, acting, visual arts, yearbook, online “zines”, belly dancing and many others. The clubs offered each year change depending on the interest of our students. Talk to your advisor if you have an idea for a club you would like to see at Metro
Student Leadership Council (SLC)
Student Leadership Council, or SLC, is a student run organization that seeks to make Metro a better place for all. Students in SLC meet once a month to talk about what the school needs and how we can put those things in place. Students in SLC have been responsible for running the school store, held ice cream socials, provided snacks for students during testing time and many other things. SLC is a great chance for students to have a voice on campus. It’s simple to join SLC, simply show up to the meetings and help make Metro a better place
Tools for Peace
Partnered with Metro as an after-school club, Tools for Peace teaches youth and adults practical methods for cultivating compassion, peace, and wellbeing through training in mindfulness and meditation. Their curriculum helps students build the skills of mindfulness and compassion to support all aspects of learning — such as social and emotional learning — and offers them tools to develop positive attitudes, resolve conflicts, cope with difficulties, develop self-motivation and self-confidence, and feel willing, able, and equipped to help others.
Urban Future Leaders of America (uFLOW)
The uFLOW program mentors at-risk high school youth to solve the problems they see in their community through student-driven service projects. Its mission is to improve the socioeconomic conditions that exist in American communities by developing local youth into leaders committed to creating positive change in their community. Many of our 9th and 10th grade students participate in uFLOW as part of the after-school program.
College Track is an after-school, college preparatory program for under-resourced high school students who are motivated to earn a college degree. Through their center-based approach and core service areas, College Track creates a culture of high expectations and ensures that each student is college ready by providing support that many students do not have in their homes or at their schools. Students typically enroll in College Track at the end of their 8th grade year, and Metro works closely with College Track to provide participants with the most effective support possible. If you are interested in participating, email Omar Butler.
BMAGIC advances the educational, economic, and juvenile justice of underserved youth and their families in Bayview/Hunters Point. BMAGIC is a collaborative San Francisco neighborhood-based nonprofit organization that coordinates community resources and opportunities to support service providers and community members in Bayview/Hunters Point. Metro offers our students many valuable opportunities through our partnership with BMAGIC.
Bayview Hunter’s Point Center for Arts and Technology (BAYCAT) offers free classes to youth in media and design, and Metro students always have the opportunity to participate in their after-school program. Through project-based learning and access to the latest digital technology, students are able to learn professional media applications while discovering their innate artistic abilities. By encouraging students to collaborate with each other, their families, and the world around them, BAYCAT strives to build a community enriched by the experience of creative expression.
