Mitchell County Schools Reviews
My favorite thing about Mitchell County Schools has to be the teachers. Although I would consider Mitchell County schools to be average in other areas, I have had the opportunity to connect with great teachers, in all subjects, which is awesome. This interaction with knowledgable and compassionate instructors has influenced my success as a student, and for that I am extremely grateful. Some aspects of Mitchell County schools that I would like to see change include more clubs/ organization involvement opportunities; a greater focus on environmentally friendly practices, particularly regarding the cafeteria; and more support for the arts, whether musical or material.
Mitchell High School is an excellent school. I highly recommend your child attending MHS. The teachers were very friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to teach my daughter not only academics, but how to succeed after High School. I look forward to my son attending in a few years.
Mitchell county schools is in a small community, with everyone having close ties with everyone else. There is not a lot of diversity but that is not the schools fault it is about location and the size of the community and school. In my opinion it is hard to get high school students ready for college because they do not fully grasp how much they need to do to prepare.
