|Welcome to MITCH|
If you are new to MITCH, you might find yourself asking, "What is MITCH and what is a charter school?" M.I.T.C.H. stands for Multi-sensory Instruction Teaching Children Hands-on, and a charter school is a public school that has chosen a unique curriculum other than what is currently in use by the school district. It is a publicly funded school so the students and their families do not pay tuition. M.I.T.C.H. is a separate 501 (c) 3 nonprofit school approved by the Tigard/Tualatin School Districts. (The 501(c )3 is used to designate a non-religious and non-political school.)
MITCH was founded on a passion for academic excellence. Before settling on an approach, we looked at the top-rated schools academically nationwide to figure out what made them so successful. Determining that schools with an agricultural emphasis were extremely successful, we combined the agricultural focus with the most successful academic curriculum available. We started with a strong "hands on" approach and continue with that model today.
