My experience at Mitty is one I will always cherish for the rest of my life! I was able to expand my education while being involved in a welcoming community full of school spirit. Athletically, all the programs here compete at high levels and are coached by staff that not only wants to make you a better player, but a better person in the process. On top of that, Mitty provides numerous outlets for help when students are applying for colleges or are starting to look into them. One thing I would change is having an open campus. For me I often have periods were I don't have class so I have a few hours where I just do nothing on campus once I finish my homework. Being able to leave to eat lunch or run some errands would be nice, but in the aspects of safety, I understand why we don't have it. Overall, Archbishop Mitty has provide me with a great high school experience that I believe has greatly prepared me for my college years.
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.
