Rob Metz joins our BARR team as Deputy Director

We are incredibly excited to welcome Rob Metz to the BARR Center as the Deputy Director. As the Deputy Director, Rob will be providing support to the leadership of our BARR schools to help ensure all our schools are thriving, developing the business plan for the BARR Center, and serving on the leadership team.

I had the great fortune of working with Rob when I was a counselor at St Louis Park High School. Rob is bright, creative and a natural relationship builder.  He has over 37 years of experience as an educator; 19 of which in the St. Louis Park School District - first as a principal at Aquila Elementary School, then as principal of St. Louis Park High School, and finally as the Superintendent.

Rob has an unwavering commitment to all students’ success and believes deeply that educators are the key to transforming our education system. We are thrilled to be able to work with such an accomplished individual and share his numerous talents with our BARR family. Please help me welcome Rob to the BARR team!
