Mitchell High school was a small and comfortable place to grow and learn. The small size allowed a personal learning experience. Everyone knew everyone, and the teachers always jumped at the chance to help, if need be. Another advantage of the small student body is that everyone joins the same clubs and sports teams, so a student can develop deep personal friendships with his or her classmates in several different outlets. The upper-level high school classes are challenging and engaging in exciting ways. Students learn advanced science and machinery classes, or more elaborate art and music classes, as well as higher level foreign languages such as Spanish and French. Mitchell High School proves day in and day out that bigger isn't always better. I wouldn't change my experience there for anything.
Mitchell High School has been my place of academics for going on four years now. Throughout that time, I've grown and changed with the school, in just two years since I started as a freshman, Mitchell High School has done a complete 180-degree shift and started one-to-one learning. In other words, all students have Chromebooks. This has given us so many more opportunities to learn in new ways.

We offer a wide range of courses at Mitchell High School. Two foreign languages, six sciences, seven if that includes psychology and many more. Mitchell High School also is lucky enough to have a woodworking/graphics imaging/welding class, all taught by a very dedicated teacher. The staff and teachers take the time to help you through whatever you need help with, that being scholarships, questions about essays, etcetera.

Mitchell High School earns its four-star rating, and for good reason too. If one is in need of help, they can count on Mitchell High School.
