It is the mission of Mitchell County Schools to collaborate with families and community partners to provide a safe, caring, and engaging learning environment that prepares graduates to become responsible citizens in a diverse, global society.
We adhere to the belief that character education is incredibly important for all stakeholders involved in our system, as is evidenced our belief system listed above. As such, we have character traits/themes each month on which our respective schools focus.
