I agree with the one star comments. This is not a good school. May be the worst in this area.
My Children attend Mitchell and I feel that overall it is a good school. I feel that the staff is genuinely concerned for the well being and educational needs for all students. They have good after school programs that cost very little or are free. I would like to see Treasures Reading Program taken out of the classroom and see good literature instead.
Previous ratings had to be done by someone trying desperately to bump up the scores and image of Mitchell. This is a school that should be doing better than it is. Decent teachers but substandard test scores. Over half the kids fail to make adequate yearly progress in math and reading. Principal tools around in a convertible Mercedes and appears obsessed with non-stop fundraising events that kids and parents are hounded to participate in via inserts, e-mails and automated phone calls. In keeping with the lack of an honest academic focus, homework is never sent home on weekends. Mitchell is in dire need of new management. If your child has a chance to go to a different school with a different academic culture and a true learning environment, GO.
So far this school has been awesome. I love the sense of community and my son's teacher is great. Go Mustangs!
PLEASE READ THIS IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING ENROLLING YOUR CHILD HERE!!! I BELIEVED THE GOOD REVIEWS ABOUT THIS SCHOOL AT FIRST, TOO!!! I don't have a clue why this school is getting good reviews unless they had Mrs. Torres. She's is the only good thing about the school. This school is poorly ran even for a public school. About half of the teachers just yell at the students and many refuse communicate directly with the parents. If we have an issue we must write the teacher a note and can expect to hear back from them (in the form of a note) after several days. That is unacceptable to me. We are currently waiting for a transfer because my student has NO TEACHER. The teacher we started the school year off with has been absent at least 25% of the time and has just taken a 6 week personal leave.We have been dealing with a revolving door of substitutes all year and are now forced to hope that we get a stable teacher sometime soon. The replacement the school is looking for is last years gym teacher. SERIOUSLY!?! If you have the ability to, I would find another school.
Great staff, have done everything to get my kid to enjoy school and learn! The Principle is always available to answer questions and to help!
Because it does a great job of educating our children and grandchildren. They provide a safe haven for children in a crazy world.
Great teachers and parents that support the students to learn, and respect each other and their community!
Mitchell is the best elementary school in Albuquerque, NM. The principal, staff and teachers really care about the kids and their learning needs.
Mitchell Elementary has a incredibly caring, knowledgeable, and motivated staff. I am proud to be a part of it. Parents, staff members, and students go the extra mile at Mitchell in insure that our school is the best! (And it is:0)

Mitchell Elementary is a great place to learn. Our staff is the greatest and our students are awesome! We work together to make our children the best they can be.
Mitchell's students, teachers and parents care about their community and are actively involved to make it better :) They rock!
Best playground with huge map of the USA. Great staff, great attitude throughout the student body.
WOW, having finally breaking away from our comfort zone at another NE Heights Elementary School, my only regret is that we did not make the transfer years ago. What a great, positive, nurturing and educational place for my child to be! The teachers, principal, staff and PTO seem to really get why they are educators. I am proud to be affiliated with this school.
