Client Testimonials

“As the project manager for a US Department of Education grant, which lasted five years and created a regional system of cooperating public schools of choice, I had the good fortune to work with Metis Associates. The project was unique to a region unfamiliar with cross-district projects and hostile to schools of choice. Metis Associates helped me negotiate the difficulties inherent in this environment. They were flexible and creative in meeting the challenges of the project. Metis Associates provided critical help in curriculum development, formulation of professional development activities, data collection, data analysis, and preparation of annual reports. They aided us in establishing a system of data collection and self-evaluation that helps maintain standards of excellence years after their participation contractually concluded.”

Robert McBroom, former Project Director, Voluntary Public School of Choice Grant

“Working with Metis Associates is truly a joy. I am continually amazed at their ability to efficiently and thoroughly sift through seemingly disparate information and data and compile it into easy to understand reports and visual representations. Within a month of first working together, Metis presented us with an incredible document that laid out our theory of change and the related resources and data points in a way that is easy to digest and immediately useful. I truly appreciate their flexibility and willingness to adjust to our needs. They are truly partners in our work.”

Stephanie Carnahan, Director of GEAR UP, Oregon State University

“Metis Associates worked closely with our research team to understand the purpose of our project as well as why it mattered to our stakeholders. They had excellent listening and communication skills, and they were always responsive to questions and concerns from our team. Because of their partnership and rigorous processes, we were able to tell a compelling success story based on data that we felt confident was accurate.”

Collin Callaway, Chief Operations Officer, Arkansas Community Colleges

“We at CEI have worked with Metis for several years and have nothing but praise and gratitude for their staff. Metis is a first-rate company with a highly professional staff and proven results. On our last federal grant proposal, as always they were quick to respond and guide us through the process with expert advice and thoughtful insights from their years of experience, all of which helped us to develop a meaningful and impactful program and a winning proposal.”

Cory Cotto, Director of Operations and Development, Center for Educational Innovation

“I have worked with Metis Associates for the past five years on a multi-site project with complex data needs. Metis is the technical assistance provider for the data development, and my team is analyzing those data for a program evaluation. The folks at Metis have always been extremely thoughtful, detail-oriented, and responsive to our many inquiries and collaborative efforts over the years. I would gladly work with Metis again on future projects!”

Theresa Anderson, Research Associate, The Urban Institute

“Metis Associates has taken the word ‘partnership’ to a new level. It has been a wonderful experience partnering with an organization that truly sees the collective mission in regard to the successful implementation of the work. They have ensured that their contributions enable us to build on the work we have done and increase our capacity to serve students. We couldn't do it without them!”

Alexandrea Robinson-Rogers, Director, GEAR UP, School District of Philadelphia

“When I accepted the challenge of creating a state intermediary to support 159 local collaboratives [for Georgia Family Connection Partnership], one of my first calls was to Metis. Their work has since made a difference in helping us to shape policy and practice as well as to increase understanding of the importance of results accountability and the use of evaluation locally across the state. My experience with Metis Associates has been nothing but positive, which is why I have continued to seek their expertise, knowledge, and assistance in my work to support children and families in Georgia over the years.”
