    "I loved that the principal always kept academics first . As a student there I was able to receive my associates degree by the time I graduated . Being able to experience college was great along with earning college credit free of charge ."

    "The principal made sure this school was unique. The graduating class of 2016, which had almost 80 students, achieved something no other school around it did - they had 19 students graduate with an Associate of Arts in Business Administration, and about 10 more done with their first year of college. The school highly encourages you to push yourself to your highest potential and makes a way for you if you want to. They are encouraging other students - not just seniors - to take college courses and graduate with many college credit hours - if not an actual degree, while other schools in the area barely had any students in college. Although this school shows favoritism at times, as long as you do what you're supposed to, they're sure to help you. A few favorite experiences were when the whole school came together and had a "cookout" when great things were done, such as the girls basketball team making it to state, among other things. Although I have done higher than my share of complaining about the staff and pressure put on me in the past, now that I have graduated (as one of the 19 students with an Associates), I have realized how great the school is overall. They really try their best to push you and really believe in their students, even when the students don't believe in themselves."

    "There are only a few of the teacher's I have taken that are bringing the rate down. Other than those few who are horrible at grading equally, do not communicate properly, and do not make an effort in helping students, the rest do a pretty good job at all of those things. Freshmen had some of the best teachers, but one of them left a couple years ago, and another has not been put in the first teaching position lately (meaning she just started helping another teacher instead of teaching herself). That teacher, who taught Physical Science, made sure you were prepared. Almost every day or every other day, she would have a worksheet - which she hand wrote and made copies of - of the questions she thought were the most important and some that the students did not seem to grasp. She would compare everything to real life examples, and had almost a 100% passing rate on the end of the course tests. The class started off with us doing the worksheet, and going up to her when done. She would then grade it in front of you, and that was half of your daily grade (the other half was participation- so you still passed everything either way). After she graded it, you kept the sheet and would most likely learn it by heart. Her techniques worked extremely well although the principal did not encourage it. She was a strict teacher, but it worked and she always had an answer for any question you had regarding ANYTHING science or math. She encouraged everyone to do their best by incorporating her culture and personal struggles to show you that you can do anything you set your mind to, and was honestly one of my two favorite teachers of all time. The other teacher that moved away had a different teaching technique, but was equally as successful. She taught in a different way each week because she knew that not everyone has the same learning style. Both teachers would grade fairly, and never showed favoritism."

    "This high school is the best I've been to. Yes, it is very strict but the teachers make sure that we are prepared for the future. We are taught valuable life lessons and the quality of education is extremely great! Numerous graduates have stated that the education taught in Mitchell County prepared them for college. On the other hand , the administrators do involve parents and students in decisions regarding the school. The student body is not very large so we are able to get more one on one time with teachers and everyone is friendly . We are always rewarded for good behavior and grades."

    "This school is really great. They are focused on good education. The teachers worry about their students, and everybody wants to make sure that each and every student does all that they can do. They are strict when it comes to rules, but it is a good way to discipline the students."
