We've had children at Mitchell since the 2003/04 school year, and we've loved every year. All three principals have been excellent in their own way. The staff has been caring, supportive, and willing to work with us to foster good habits in both of our children. They were hit by the state-wide budget cuts 6 years ago but have adapted beautifully and continue to maintain high standards for student achievement. We are so sad to be leaving Mitchell due to our move.
Great school - wonderful teachers - I have to agree that the Principle lacks people skills. Overall there is a high degree of organization and the kids feel the sense of belonging. The lunch menu leads a lot to be desired and the volunteers seem to be given way too much 'authority' over the children.
The school itself is wonderful the only downfall is the principle. Students and teachers feel the effect of a dictator. Two years ago I would have given 5 stars. Hopefully there is a change next year. Parent involvement has also decreased.
am a new parent at mitchell and so far, i didn't see anything bad about the school. the teachers are amazing.
Sadly, due to budget cuts and a drastic change in leadership, Mitchell is no longer the wonderful school it once was. Parent involvement and morale among the students, staff and teachers has dropped significantly. Two years ago I would have happily given it 5 stars.
The teachers on staff are the best! The go above and beyond to help each student succeed. The rest of the staff works hard to support the teachers, students and families! Mitchell School really is the best!!
My daughter is graduating from high school this year and I feel that I owe Mitchell Elementary credit for her outstanding academic accomplishments thus far.
The teachers are great! They work together as a team so all the classes in the same grade get the same level of education. They have high standards, so when our 6th graders move on to Junior High they are totally prepared.
I am sorry for this rating but Mitchell transfers the best teachers out and the parents and teachers have no say this year we again our losing one of the best 2nd grade teacher with her gone I am sure your ratings will drop such as this
This school is amazing. The best part are the outstanding teachers that give each child 110% of their efforts.
We have found the new principal to be very responsive and supportive. There is a fair bit of varience among teacher styles, so parental involvement is important. Overall, a tremendous school.
My son just completed his first year here (kindergarden) the teachers are great and every monday you get a recorded messege from the principal outlining events in the comming week. The only con is way too much fundraising!!!
Phenomenal and Excellent teachers. Great extracurriculum activities.
It had great leadership which employed excellent teachers...new leadership will determine if the quality remains.
Mitchell has a new principal this year, and it is difficult to know what changes might occur as a result. The old principal was excellent, however, and built a terrific staff and school structure. The administration has always been willing to work with parents. The academic programs really take off in the upper grades with creative work and passionate teachers.
I think that this school is one of the finest in the state. I have children on either spectrum of the educational scale. Mitchell meets the needs of my highly gifted child and my learning disable child. The teachers are highly motivated and available to parents.
We love this school! The staff all around is the best! The community feel of the school is evident everywhere. I give this school 5 stars!
This school is wonderful and the staff really cares about the childrens education.
There are no music classes available due to budget cuts. Physical education for growing children is limited to 30 min. per week. The GATE program for advanced students is disappointing as they really do not do anything different from the other students except for 1 project a year. The classes in the upper grades (5th & 6th) are crowded, making it difficult for advanced children to get any additional projects or help to work on. The school is not a bad school overall, but there are many areas that are disappointing, particularly those I have noted.
