Mitchell High School had a welcoming environment. The teachers and staff were amazing role models; specifically my teachers, which I am so thankful to have crossed paths with. Mitchell was not a perfect school, it had it's downfalls. Well not the school specifically but with their students. I am a Mitchell graduate of 2019, during my senior year I was bullied. The situation escalated and it made me not want to go there. What I would like to change about the school would be how the handle situations like that. Students safety is a priority. When that situation happened to me, I really didn't feel safe or comfortable. I wish they would've done more to make me feel comfortable or safe.

Mitchell highschool had a very pleasant vibe to it, the teachers are very understanding and nice, the counselors and staff work their hardest to account to the students, the janitors work their hardest for the school and keep it very clean and are absolutely some of the nicest people ive ever met. The security team is so generous and understanding and they do a very good job at keeping the students and staff safe.
Mitchell high school is a very nice place the staff always work their hardest and the activities are always wonderful and so much fun. One thing i would like to see changed is maybe the way the homework grading system is, not many kids have as much time to do homework as teachers think we do.
