My kids love Mitch. They are doing math two grades above their normal grade. They read and write better than their friends in other schools. Mitch is great. Period.

History is repeating itself. The director has her own agenda and is not listening to parents. Several parents including myself have tried to have conversations with her but she just doesn't seem to listen when your talking to her. The school is not full. Parents used to spread the word about this school and now hardly anyone is. Last spring the seventh grade class had 26 kids in it now it has only 14. One of the 5th grade classes has only a few boys in it because all the rest have left this past fall. These are families that have been there a long time and they're leaving because of the atmosphere. No more no uniform days. Assigned seating for lunch. Kids are so unhappy. At a board meeting once they actually said they didn't want to hear about the loss of community everyone was feeling. You also have to pay an activities few of $300 a year per student and if they don't use it all they keep it and roll it over every year. But in 8th grade at the end of the year they keep whatever is not used. Last year they kept $150 from each student. It's so sad that a once great school is falling apart. Please think very hard before sending your child here.

MITCH charter school is an amazing school. I have had one child start off in a traditional public school setting and one child at MITCH since Kindergarten. The schools are night and day. MITCH offers an academic program that ignites a child's learning and pushes them to the best they can be. With a well rounded integrated curriculum my kids learn a topic and it is reinforced in all subjects. My child who was not engage in public school is fully involved in MITCH and working at or above grade level now. It is amazing what this school has done for my kids. And the Director at the school is amazing. She truly loves the kids and does everything in the interest of the children. She greets them every morning as they enter the building, in the rain or snow she is ALWAYS there. She knows what is needed to make a school of excellence and she will get MITCH there. The school is already outstanding in my eyes compared to what the public schools had to offer. I am excited to see what else the director and faculty do to make this school to stand out even more.

Good for elementary but middle school has a lack of opportunities. They do have a technology class for middle school but they only teach typing and sending e-mails.

My daughter was not challenged academically at Horizon Christian and she would not have been challenged at our regular public elementary. At MITCH she is in a small class size and is constantly challenged academically. The school has gone through many changes in the last two or three years with many upset families that have written negative reviews. I can honestly say that the school is moving in the direction it was originally dreamed that it could be. The AG integration program is awesome, the school is pursuing the Core Knowledge School of Distinction which is providing frequent and coordinated staff development. The students are given precise guidelines for behavior and set up for success. Truly this school is growing into the shining star of the district that it was meant to be.

M.I.T.C.H. Is not the school it once was. Since January of 2014, 14 staff members have left the school. The things that made this school unique are gone. There is no more sense of community anymore. Parents aren't involved in any decision making either. Problems wit in the school are worse than ever. Parents are not happy with decisions that are being made. No only is the atmosphere at the school bad but so are the test scores. The test scores are really bad and haven't improved. This school is barely hanging on. Think twice before sending your kids here.

MITCH is a public charter school with smaller class sizes than most public schools. The average class size does not exceed 25. If you are considering this school know that the curriculum is difficult, there is a lot of home work. You also need to be willing to financially make up the deficient of state funding with a parent contribution of approximately $500 for your family. Since Mitch is a charter school it does not receive the same funding as normal public schools. Parent time is also needed. I feel very grateful that we were selected through the lottery.

Thank you Gov. Kitzhaber and TTSD for being innovative with education. Mitch charter school, a great school, like many others in our district targets the education of children with a hands on approach, but within a smaller community. It is an environment where teachers rigorously push the children to learn, yet rely on parents to be significantly involved. As a parent, I am grateful that a school like this exists in our backyard. As for the negative accusations in the post below, biased, uncaring and unfair assuming there was a teacher like that...they definitely are not here now.

We've had our child at MITCH for 4 years now and continue to be very happy with the academic excellence and rigorous curriculum that the use. This students at this school are backed by amazing parents that support the staff and school around every bend. Although MITCH is in a time of transition, things are moving in a very positive direction.

I have had my children at this school of excellence for 6 years. They consistently are learning material that I didn't tackle until I was in high school. It continues to be rigorous and outstanding on all regards. Unfortunately there are a few parents that don't understand what true commitment to academic excellence means and they have created issues for the school. I would challenge anyone with issues with the school to try to find a better school elsewhere. Go team MITCH. Let's keep the focus on the kids and leave the rest of the agendas at the door.
