Throwback Thursday - Metro Through the Years

Posted by Adriana Amelio on Jan 15, 2015 4:41:00 PM

As we start 2015, we thought it'd be a great time to look back on all that Metro has accomplished through the years!

If you've ever taken a class with us, you're a huge part of a dynamic Edmonton institution. We've been around since 1890, but we haven't always been the Metro you know and love in 2015. Throwback through the years with us, and maybe learn a little something new about the school that's educated so many Edmontonians!
