About Joseph E. Metcalf School

The vision for the Joseph Metcalf School is to provide students with a rich, high-quality education. In our Dual Language Program that education will be taught in both Spanish and English. Children at Metcalf School will have the opportunity to become fluent speakers, readers, and writers.  All of our students will become flexible thinkers with the ability to build life-long friendships with children of different cultures and language backgrounds. Children will achieve their highest potential by having educational opportunities to develop their problem-solving skills and social-emotional development making them better equipped to achieve at high levels and be on a path to success in college and career.
