    "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."

    "It's been said by people that have met Bruce Springsteen that he is exactly the kind of person you hoped he would be. As a parent that was apprehensive about sending my child to a Chicago Public School, I can wholeheartedly say that Mitchell Elementary is everything that I hoped it would be: wholeheartedly supported by the community it serves, dedicated 1000% to every child that attends there, and a place where enthusiasm for learning doesn't fall victim to the demands of test scores and standardized mandates. Our son has thrived in an atmosphere that reminds of the elementary school of my own childhood, which I looked forward to attending each day and whose teachers I remember fondly even now. The talented and dedicated staff both challenge and encourage my child to succeed academically as well as nuturing his sense of self-worth and respect and caring for others. Mitchell truly is a remarkable school that I feel fortunate to have discovered."

    "My school is the best in the city (if not the country). We are moving to 100% national board certified teachers, we have Mandarin Chinese, as well as a partnership with Hubbard Street Dance. My daughter thrives here, and we love it. Parents are very involved, which helps shape the school. The teachers/principal/asst principal will do anything to make sure your child is happy. With a small school, they know the kids and the families. Such a blessing!"
