    "My son went to this school for 4th and 5th grade. It was a nightmare! I was constantly getting complaints about his behavior. Every other day it was something about what he had done wrong or how he was bullying the other kids. I finally moved my son to the suburbs and I'm not shocked that I never get a single complaint. I actually get compliments on how well behaved he is and how great of a student he is. He went from being a C/D student to an A/B student. The principal and vice principal at Mitchell are terrible. I tried to talk to them so many times about how there had to be something else going on at the school but they didn't care. I'm so happy my son is not in that environment anymore. Obviously he was the one being bullied and when he retaliated he was punished for it. Something needs to change at that school and I hope no other children are going through what my son went through."

    "I am not sure how the schools are rated, and I am saddened that Mitchell Elementary school -the small school with a BIG heart has a rating of 4! This school deserves a 100! As a grandparent, I am pleased that my two grandchildren feel happy, welcome and safe here. As a retired CPS teacher, I have an insight to the workings that make this school GREAT, that an average person might not see. Devoted Teachers and their training shows in the beautiful and busy learning environment. The school days come and go seemingly effortlessly as many activities occur, sometimes three in a school day - outside of and independent of the classrooms! Due to the quality and participation of parents (interested parents are quality parents), throughout the school year, Mitchell can bask in the love that develops within a tight community. Parents ARE PIVOTAL to the raising of funds for the extras that every school needs - be it field trip monies or sponsoring Hubbard Street Dance classes at school, instruments for music classes, art and other classroom supplies, or after school movie nights, or sock hops, or end of year fun fairs. Working together. We make me stronger! Go Bobcats!"

    "Mitchell Elementary School is an awesome neighborhood school and a true diamond in the rough of public schools! I am proud that everyone who comes to Mitchell comments on how wonderfully the entire school community works together and how the students genuinely love coming to school. Many teachers are National Board Certified in a wide range of topics spanning Literacy to Physical Education. We are pleased to offer Mandarin Chinese as a World Language and students receive dance instruction from the renowned Hubbard Street Dance Company. I wanted to write this review because not only do I work at Mitchell School, I am a community member, and this school deserves top ratings! I find one of the true tests of a school is when the teachers send their own kids to school there--which many teachers already do, and someday I will as well! Mitchell definitely has one of the hardest working, professional team of teachers and likewise on our parent board, Friends of Mitchell . If you live in the West Town/Ukrainian Village area, or anywhere near this school, I urge you to check out our Small School with Big Dreams! There's always room for more amazing kids to join our Bobcat Family!"

    "Mitchell School is a great school! Good teachers, staff, principal and students. My daughter has been in this school since pre-k and every year she's so excited to go back to school! The teachers make students feel welcome and secure. The ONLY reason I rated 4 stars is because I just found out that students don't graduate with cap and gown. Call me old school but my personal opinion is cap and gown should be a MUST! That's what every student looks forward to. Walking the stage with it on. Being able to distinguish who's graduating. Other than that, very awesome school."

    "We are so happy to have found Mitchell. I have two kids attending the school and have found the curriculum to be challenging, the teachers and staff to be supportive and creative, and the parent community engaged. Over 70% of the teachers are Nationally Board Certified. The teachers consistently win awards and grants for their classrooms. It is a small school, no child gets lost in the shuffle. The teachers (even in the older grades,) staff and administration know who all the students are and who their parents are. All students attend PE, Hubbard Street Dance, Chinese, art and music class weekly, including the PreK students. My kids love school and their teachers, I couldn't ask for anything else."
