Metric's data-driven approach has given us new insight into our admissions work and is helping us better target and steward right-fit families through to enrollment. They are a terrific, collaborative strategic partner to our team, always available to share ideas with top-notch service and support.

Director of Communications & Marketing
Lycée Français de New York

Our school's website had served us well for many years, but it was dated. Metric helped us rebuild our site from the ground up. The entire team was professional, responsive and had the breadth of skill to get the job done. We are so pleased with the results and feedback from our users tells us they are too. The new website has an entirely fresh, new look and feel and the new site map is much easier to navigate. Thank you to the team at Metric Marketing for bringing our vision to life.

There are marketing agencies, and then there are true partners. Metric Marketing has been an invaluable partner for the Meridian School, and it is clear the team has extensive experience and can guide organizations at multiple levels, both strategically or tactically. We've been fortunate to work with them for projects spanning from digital ads to visual identity, and from website to even more in the future. We have always felt supported and know we are coming to the table with someone invested in our success.

Metric Marketing has become an extension of the Academy and especially our marketing team. Our partnership is one of shared goals and trust. Although our campaign has only been in market for a few months, we are already seeing evidence that our fine-tuned message is reaching, not just users, but students who seek mentorship, brotherhood, and academic achievement – which is what we offer.

The pool of Metric's inquiries really showcases many important sub-categories within our enrollment funnel – siblings, students from key CBO partners, students from our waitlist, full pay and students seeking aid, families from independent/feeder schools as well as local public school families, and legacy applicants are all represented.
