The Metropolitan School of Panama (MET) is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for students aged 3-18. We are the only IB continuum school in Panama authorized to offer the PYP, MYP and DP programmes in English. We deliver individualized instruction, working step by step with students to ensure each child reaches their personal level of excellence through a balanced academic program.

The MET is proud to form part of Nord Anglia Education, the world's leading premium schools organization, uniting more than 80 other outstanding schools in 32 countries worldwide. NAE's global family of schools share a common philosophy that there is no limit to what its students can achieve. We embrace an open culture of inclusion and belonging and celebrate our diversity. International Day is a highlight of the academic year, when MET families come together to share their cultures through fun activities. Our House system, where everyone belongs to one of four houses, is also a way we come together to embrace school spirit and forge strong bonds across the community.

Our goal is to educate your child for the future, enhancing learning through collaborations with the world's best organizations. Our world-class collaborations with The Juilliard School, MIT, and UNICEF especially boost our students' interests and passions with a sense of purpose, as they learn from globally leading experts. Our Juilliard curriculum gives all our students the innovative tools to think creatively, explore the unexpected, and celebrate diverse cultures. Likewise, The MIT-Nord Anglia STEAM program helps our students to develop their creativity and problem-solving skills by tackling interdisciplinary challenges facing the world today and connect their actions with sustainability and social impact via our UNICEF collaboration.

Each MET teacher builds a good relationship with your child, knowing how to tailor lessons and activities to their interests, needs, and goals. They will give your child the right amount of challenge or support needed and will guide them to learn more about the world with opportunities to explore both local traditions and international cultures.
