THE DIRECTION IN WHICH EDUCATION STARTS A MAN WILL DETERMINE HIS FUTURE  LIFE

PLATO

Summary

The creation of The Mitchellville School addresses several major County socioeconomic and educational concerns.  Specifically, the school:

  • responds to the demand for a high quality local educational option for children and parents;
  • allows bright, naturally motivated children to remain in or return to the County and develop a greater sense of community;
  • conducts outreach activities to ensure that a high quality educational option is available to eligible County children regardless of their socioeconomic standing;
  • helps to retain a substantial amount of revenue within the County; and
  • is the first private/independent year-round, mathematics, science, and technology-focused school in the metropolitan area.

The Mitchellville School's success is to be marked by its understanding that: 1) the journey of learning begins during the early years; 2) being a "good" student is no longer "good enough" to be accepted at the leading high schools and universities/colleges; and 3) in this century, computer literacy will be as important as reading, writing, and mathematics were in the last century. The Mitchellville School complements local public and private school offerings by providing a sound educational alternative for children and families. Overall, the Mitchellville School enhances the social, educational, cultural, and economic standing of Prince George's County and has a profound, positive impact on the metropolitan area's educational makeup.
