Mayfield City School District Reviews

As a whole, Mayfield is a good school district. I have attended the high school for four years, and while every student has their typical grievances against the system and staff, I can say that objectively the school district is better than most in Ohio. The academics are rigorous and there are a variety of course options to keep all students engaged and stimulated. My criticism however is that as an art student I've really come to realize how much the importance of the arts as a department is swept under the rug. Though the art teachers are lovely, the department as a whole is overlooked by the administration in terms of opportunity and funding in favor of sports, seemingly because of the money the school makes off of football and such. Throughout my time at Mayfield I've seen the art department downsizing, losing funding, and being ignored during the pandemic. Art club also was cancelled despite many students being interested in it and losing valuable space for creation.

The school caters to the wants of affluent parents. The achievement gap continues to grow at this school. My son is on a 504 and of color. He is in a co-taught class with nearly 100% IEP and 504 students. Affluent parents are able to pull their kids into honors courses even if they don't belong there, according to my daughter. She experienced racism on multiple occasions and it was essentially dismissed because there was no written evidence. I went to the office to drop something off and students of color were trolling the hallways-- its almost as if the staff neglects them and allows them to do what they want on purpose. This school has what it takes to be amazing, but clearly doesn't use its resources correctly. They installed a lavish space for a program with no data. Admin tweets pics of them at developments. My child's special education teachers don't get these types of opportunities according to the twitter feeds of these men.
I graduated almost 40 years ago. The things I wanted changed got changed, I am happy to say! I raised my children in the district and it was a great experience. My children are grown and doing well. I am still in contact with many of the graduates from my class and my children are as well.
