I'm from a wealthy district and grew up in a school with the highest test scores and most impressive resume. We won national awards and sent kids off to ivy league colleges. That doesn't interest me. People left school so dead and uncultured and unexcited about making an impact on the world that I don't see the relevance or value in that education. While Mitchell might not have fourth graders pre-prepared for college what they're creating in the school is an environment that encourages students to be HUMAN. There is so much enthusiasm amongst the teachers so much honesty upheld by the staff so much EXCITEMENT that beams through the halls that I'd send my kids there if I had 'em. Mitchell's enthusiasm for community-based volunteer programs has made the school an integral part of our city and there no longer exists a separation between the school and its neighbors. The kids practice yoga once a week and once the kids reach third grade they tend to the Green Heart Garden - planting harvesting taste tasting - every Friday. Mitchell students are getting a circular holistic education. One up to date. Maybe revolution begins here.
