Open Quote Those who say Mitchell is a terrible school obviously do not attend. Mitchell is more than two bad students who made even worse choices, you've heard about the lock down but have you heard about how our slam poetry? Our art and theatre programs? Have you listened to all the good things said? No, we do not come from a family of money. We understand what it's like to have next to nothing, & its nice to know we aren't alone. We aren't the "poor school" the "ghetto" school. We are your next set of doctors. We are lawyers and artists, and we will not go down without a fight. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
