Principal's reflections on the Class of 2021:

We were unable to conduct a graduation last year, but I was determined to make it happen for this year. Special thanks go to the Indian Prairie School District Board of Education and our Superintendent of Schools Dr. Adrian Talley. Together, we found a way to turn the negatives of a pandemic into a panoramic sea of successful graduates at Metea Valley. I am super proud of the Class of 2021. Best wishes to you in your bright futures. Go Go Mustangs!

-- Principal Darrell Echols
