This is one of many examples of our vision coming to life. Please see the press release link below for more details.
Earn Free College Credits with CLEP
This is an excellent opportunity for students to earn free credits that will transfer to over 2,900 colleges, demonstrate college and career readiness for graduation requirements, and get a head start on making the most out of The Mitchell Promise Pikes Peak State College Scholarship. Mitchell students have so far earned 111 more credits with CLEP, bringing our running total to 285. This has saved MHS families $76,964.00 in tuition. Our pass rate remains 100%. Go Marauders!!!

Senior Awards Night
Ice Cream Sandwich Party
The math students were asked to complete 1000 EdReady interventions units this year.
Our incredible students have completed over 1200!!
To reward them for this achievement – we will gave ice cream sandwiches to everyone on Friday May 12th at the end of the school day. We congratulate all Mitchell students on a math well done!
Math and Science Scholars
The Society of Women Engineers presented Selena Lewis and Leilani Roberts an award for Excellence in Math AND Science!! The two students did NOT know…they thought they were making a video talking about math and science at Mitchell, especially the last 2 years.
Connie King from SWE presented the award. Both girls’ parents were present for the presentation.
Seal Of Biliteracy
Extracurricular activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering students the opportunity to apply academic skills in a real-world context, and are thus considered part of a well-rounded education. Recent research suggests that participation in extracurricular activities may increase students' sense of engagement or attachment to their school, and thereby decrease the likelihood of school failure and dropping out. All January student involvement will be celebrated in this issue.
United Way Food Distribution
As the school year comes to a close we would like to celebrate our spring sports at Mitchell High School. Many of our students had a chance to compete this spring in an invigorating sports season. Please celebrate these student-athletes. Here are some Marauders giving it their all. Go, Marauders!
