Mitchell Elementary is an International Baccalaureate certified public school in the Ann Arbor Public School district dedicated to empowering the local community to support the development of inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people.


About 75% of Mitchell families qualify for free or reduced lunch, which means they are considered low-income. 

In Fall 2020, CAN will not be operating programs within the building while it is closed to the public to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
