Archbishop Mitty High School Reviews

115 reviews

First and foremost, the education I received was top-notch and the counselors were very helpful in the college process. That being said, I always felt out of place within this school. The student population is dominated by white and wealthy students, as can be expected at a private, Catholic school. However, I feel that this demographic served to further perpetuate racial and cultural micro-aggressions. In addition, I have come across many situations concerning students where the administration wanted to save face and keep their wallets full. Many students were aware of the administration's value of money over student education, though there were thankfully not many situations where they both came into conflict.

They community is great and everyone supports eachother! The food is extraordinary which helps. The competition is not for everyone, but it prepares us well for college. The classes are unique and fun and there are lots of opportunities to get involved in the community! The school spirit is exceptional and when everyone gets together it is always a fun time.
If I were to describe Archbishop Mitty High School in one word, it would be "competitive". Both athletically and academically across the board, Mitty students always push themselves to become the best they can be. With that being said, Archbishop Mitty prides itself on being a place where everyone can find their place, and it does exactly that. All students at Mitty can focus on any combination of athletics, academics, and extracurriculars. The teachers and faculty members are always willing to help you with your studies. However, the administration and the front office seem to lack consistency with their rules and guidelines. The dress code has yet to really update to the current fashion and is not enforced universally. In my three years at Mitty, I can tell you that I've thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend it to everyone I meet.
