The Metropolitan School of Panama (MET), is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for students aged 3-18, and the only IB continuum school in Panama authorized to offer the PYP, MYP and DP programmes in Panama.

Celebrating 12 years of world-class academics, the MET offers Preschool through 12th grade programs, with 800 students hailing from 45 nationalities.

Our school is committed to each child reaching their personal level of excellence through a balanced academic program. Your child will develop all the skills they need to thrive, no matter what they want to do or be in life. Our teachers are highly experienced in delivering the IB Continuum and, most importantly, encourage students' talents and love for learning.

The MET is proud to form part of Nord Anglia Education, the world's leading premium schools organization, uniting with more than 80 other outstanding schools in 30+ countries worldwide. NAE's global family of schools share a common philosophy that there is no limit to what its students can achieve.

Our MIT STEAM curriculum focuses on transferable skills in an evolving world. Our global scale enables us to recruit and retain the best teachers in the world, offering a quality education in Panama.

A campus built for the future

The MET's 5-hectare purpose built campus offers unparalleled educational facilities, not just in Panama but in Central America.

MET students discover a world beyond the traditional classroom with modern learning spaces designed for collaborative learning; including 7 fully-equipped science labs, a STEAM lab, black box theater, FIFA sized soccer field, a 25 meter pool and specialized areas for design, technology and music.

We are a school committed to the education of the future and are proud to offer a 1-to-1 technology program for all students, implementing Apple technology throughout the school. MET students are encouraged to use technology strategically and mindfully, reinforcing their responsibility through our Digital Citizenship Program.

Our goal is to educate your child for the future, enhancing learning through collaborations with the world's best organizations. No two children learn the same way, which is why we personalise learning to what works best for your child. Our approach enables each child to achieve the best academic results while developing the skills, resilience and mind-set to thrive in an ever-changing world.

The MET's excellent results and acceptances at the world's leading universities are a testament to our excellent execution of the IB Programmes and our experienced teachers. The 2023 MET class achieved an excellent 90% IBDP pass rate, and a very high proportion of our Senior class (79%) studied for and achieved the IBDP. Our highest IB score was 43 points and 68% of our cohort earned a bilingual IB Diploma. MET graduates attend some of the most prestigious colleges and universities worldwide.
