Archbishop Mitty High School Reviews

Archbishop Mitty is a private Catholic school with a diverse student body that focuses on sports, speech and debate, drama, and advocacy. While it has an excellent sports and speech&debate program, science and engineering seems to be lacking in comparison to nearby schools; due to the relatively low number of students focusing on STEM activities, it appears to lack a substantial computer science and engineering oriented subculture nearby public schools tend to have. Overall, the teachers are excellent, and after sophomore year, students are more welcoming.

Archbishop Mitty High School is an all around fantastic college prep school. The environment is filled with people eager to learn and to teach. Students and teachers are beyond welcoming. Every student can be invloved with the school somehow because there are tons of opportunities for everyone to contribute to making the school what it is. There are special events such as Monarch Madness and heart warming retreats that you can only find at Mitty! The only con about the school would have to be the financial burden.
Mitty was a wonderful experience for me. There is a very strong sense of community at Mitty between students from class to class as well as with the faculty and staff. Though the school is Catholic, the faculty make it very clear that all religions, cultures, and sexualities are welcome and accepted. The one downfall I find with the school is that the dress code seems to cater to males. I think a more lenient dress code for female students would help create a better environment for them as far as positive body image is concerned. Teaching females to be ashamed of their bodies for the sake of a male should not be condoned.
