Mitchell County High School is a four-year secondary school located in Camilla, Georgia. It is a part of the Mitchell County School District. The school educates students in grades 912.



The first school to be built in Camilla, Georgia was located where the current Mitchell County Hospital is located, but only educated whites due to Jim Crow laws. Black students were soon educated from grades 1–12 at Rockdale High School. In the 1940s, schools in Mitchell County were consolidated and all blacks were educated at Camilla Consolidated School (formerly Walker-Inman Elementary School, MLK, Jr. Road), and all whites were educated at the Mitchell County Board Of Education Building (formerly Mitchell County High School building).

During the late 1960s and early 1970s schools were integrated and African American students at Camilla Consolidated were transferred to Mitchell County High School. Students not wanting to integrate transferred to a private school, Westwood Schools in the Mitchell County District to serve citizens. The former Camilla Consolidated on MLK, Jr. Road was converted into an Elementary school soon later a Junior High School for Mitchell County students.

In the early 1980s, a new Mitchell County High School was built on Newton Road. Students from the old Mitchell County and Baker County were transferred to the new school which was named Mitchell-Baker High School. All students at former Camilla Consolidated schools were then transferred to former Mitchell County High School on to Become Mitchell County Junior High School grades 3-8 (until the building of Mitchell County Middle School and Primary Schools). Mitchell Co. Elementary was transferred into a central office building and students were soon transferred back to formerly to Camilla Consolidated and that school soon became Mitchell County Elementary School (MLK Jr. Rd). The school was renamed for Camilla residents Hugh Inman and former Rockdale principal Walker for making pathways for many blacks in Mitchell County and named Walker-Inman Elementary School.

Due to rapid growth of population in Mitchell County, Mitchell County Elementary School students are being transferred to South Mitchell County Elementary School (formerly Mitchell County Primary School) and a new school, North Mitchell County Elementary located in Baconton, GA on Highway 93 grades Pre-K through 5th, has opened. With now North Mitchell County Elementary School, South Mitchell County Elementary School, Mitchell County Middle School, and Mitchell County High School educating children to be productive citizens in the 21st century is a top priority of the Mitchell County School System.
