News Release
New Mitchell High School Partnership Adds Another Tool to Close Opportunity Gaps - 03/13/23

Mitchell High School and School District 11 are proud to announce a new partnership with Peak Education. Peak Education disrupts the status quo by closing opportunity gaps in our community. Their core belief is that every student deserves to reach their full potential and that all willing learners can do so. 

The partnership aims to support Mitchell’s goals of empowering the whole student to impact the world profoundly, provide the best first instruction, and prepare all students for post-secondary education, college, and career. 

For over 25 years, Peak Education has served low-income students in Districts 2, 11, and 14 with programming starting in 7th grade through their post-secondary pathways. Their work impacts families, schools, and our city to further access to education and positively impact the social and economic trajectories of youth. Nearly 100% of Peak Education Scholars graduate high school on time, and over 90% of recent cohorts have entered a postsecondary option. Learn more about Peak Education at

Peak Education will work with two cohorts at Mitchell High School; (1) rising sophomores and (2) incoming 8th-grade students, and provide programming and mentorship with the students and their families through 12th grade and beyond. 

“Our goal at Peak Ed is to serve communities who would most benefit from the opportunities we provide. We are thrilled to partner with the leadership at Mitchell to work collaboratively to develop tangible pathways for students post-high school,” says Carlos Jimenez, Peak Education CEO.  

Mitchell principal George Smith remarks, “Having strong relationships with community partners is a key part of our strategy to revitalize the Mitchell High School Experience. Peak Education’s proven model will not only positively impact the students being directly served, but it will also have a ripple effect on college and career readiness throughout our building.” 

Mitchell High School will be the second District 11 high school to partner with Peak Education. The first was Palmer High School.
