  • What can i really say Its one of the lowest ranked in the state. Theres room for them to in all aspects. First off , I was never really satisfied with the math department. Were do they find these teachers? Most of the staff have favorites from what I hear. I'm not sure if has to do with who your parents are, what grades you make , or rather or not you play sports. I total agree that
    Mitchell should be preparing our children more for life than what they do. It also is not the type of school that prepares you for a four year university.
    Its definitely not the way a school should be ran properly.

  • I think that Mitchell High School is in the worst shape possible. Most of the teachers need to go back to school! You can not have a battle of wits with an unarmed person! Most of the teachers are only counting the days to retirement. They keep forgetting who is paying them. They answer to no one. If a parent has a question the teachers act as if they have no right to question them. I just wonder why the drop out rate keeps rising?

  • Mitchell High School Sucks!! The absence rules have resulted in so many dropouts and the teachers are uncaring as well as "under educated". I could do a better job at teacher than most of the teachers here. Mitchell High needs to get their act together or eventually they will not have enough students to even call theirselves a school!!!!
