Mitchell school district has been a great experience for me. I came into the school during the eighth grade. I was a shy kid and the school helped me become more outgoing. There are a few students who are bullying others and not much can be done about it, according to some of the administration. The kids in the school are very smart and very active in school activities. There are many social media pages dedicated to keeping people updated and pumped about current activities going on. Daily announcements give a list of school activities going forth two weeks. This keeps everyone very informed and involved.

Mitchell High School isn't my first choice of all high schools, but what am I saying this is my first full school year here and where I'm going to graduate so I'm making this year smooth as I can for myself. All three years of high school of my life was well spent at a boarding school in Anadarko Oklahoma, called Riverside Indian School. I met people from different states, cultures and backgrounds. This is my second week of attending Mitchell so far so good.
Overall good. Need for more after school / weekend activities such as dances, non sport events, etc. Need to find ways to get more parents involved in helping and assisting with school and non school activities.
