    Mr. Mitchell, Principal

    My name is Ben Mitchell. I am proud to be the Principal of Brooks Center for STEM and the Arts Magnet Middle School. I am about to begin my 3rd year as the school leader. My educational leadership philosophy is based on three principles.

    • Commitment to Service: “Leaders are Doers!”
    • Effective Communication: “Leaders give you the ‘Why’ first, then they explain the ‘How’”.
    • Quality Decision Making: “Effective leaders are collaborators who make decisions with the best interest of the ‘Whole’ as their first priority.”

    I believe Brooks has the potential to be the most inviting, creative, and productive middle school in our district. We have an incredibly diverse student body that come to our school from every avenue, street, and boulevard in Wichita. It is our task to provide each student with an inviting school community, a culture of caring, and a staff that can help them realize their highest potential. We are dedicated to the overall success of our young people in the following areas Academics, Behavior, and Character. We support the “Whole Child” at Brooks.
