School Reviews

2  8/20/2012
The academic programs at Mitchell are very good; most of the teachers make learning fun and easy for children. However, there are no music or art classes available due to budget cuts. The P.E. is truly awful; it is too taxing on students (grades 5-6). More than one child has vomited and another fainted. In addition to all of these problems, the principal has made changes that alienate parents and kids.
