Open Quote I can't say enough about this school. My son went to Brinker at first and although Brinker has better test scores, Mitchell is better in so many ways. The Mitchell principal is freaking awesome. He is present every morning and afternoon greeting and giving high fives to students. He returns calls. He cares. Teachers are not too strict and are genuinely nice. The school lets you know, via email and other online communication tools, what kids learned and what they expect to teach weekly. The school is very diverse as well which I like because that represents the country we live in. Oh my goodness, I forgot to mention...When we first registered at Mitchell as a new family, I asked to meet with the principal (yes I do that because I am an involved parent). He met with me along with my son's new teacher for 30 mins. I asked questions and they explained school philosophy, security, programs, expectation of kids, etc. The school even has a parent teacher liason that called me to welcome our family to the school and explained the liason role and how she bridges the gap to help resolve and mitigate issues before it escalates to the principal.

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.
