The Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical Center is a state funded public school district which serves 690 high school students in six small schools across three campuses in Rhode Island. Our work is focused on relationships, relevance, and rigor. The tools we use are real world learning, internships, individualized learning plans, a personalized environment, small school setting, and advisories. We achieve our goals through strong relationships with parents, family, community, business, government, and other educational institutions, thereby expanding the role of the school in the community and the community in the school.
Mission: To educate and empower youth through relentless commitment to student-centered learning and personal growth.
Vision: To lead vital change in education and impact our community by producing skilled graduates, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens who enjoy their life and work.
