Great teachers at Arrowhead Park! They always took their time to make sure I, and many other students, understood each part of the material.

One particular teacher has turned me bitter towards teachers, so my review may be extremely biased. She doesn't seem to teach nor engage the students in her class. When I have stopped by she is sitting at her desk eating! The students in her class are running around or on their personal electronic devices. What kind of teacher is that?!
I went to Mayfield from 2013-17 And was very impressed with the club's and sports, but little was done about the teaching. The teachers were great, but not valued by the district. Stan Rounds was disliked by many. The science department also needs to be funded more to give the students a better opportunity in success in college to be better prepared and to sincerely find interest in the technical sciences.
