School Reviews

  • Recommended January 10, 2011 - I graduated from Clara E. Metz Elementary school in 1970 after completing grades 1-6 there, although of course at the time there was no graduation from elementary school recognized. Mr. Bill Blalack was my principal for 6 years, Mr. Mahoney our Janitor, one of the kindest people I ever knew. Notable teachers, who made an inexpressible positive impact on my learning and in my life, and inspired me to continuous learning for the rest of my life include Mrs. Patrick, Mrs. Grant, Mrs. Targee, Mrs. Newman, Mrs. Kramer, Mrs. Minton. Thank you all, and I do hope that today's students at Metz might enjoy the same amazing level of dedication in their teachers and feel as inspired as I had the privilege of being in my elementary school years... - Posted by Student/Alumni
