I had the pleasure of knowing a few excellent instructors while I attended school here. However, many of the teachers are coming and going creating a constant revolving door. This is very inconvenient for the students and other teachers who are consistent within the institution. There are not many academic options, the school offers what is required and is not open to suggestions or recommendations. It would be great to see dual enrollment and advanced placement courses as well as a better foundation. Being such a small school, the social aspect serves as a positive thing. It is easy to get involved in extracurricular activities and take advantage of the opportunities that you are presented with. I enjoyed playing sports and the small class sizes.

I went to Mayer practically my entire life. Growing up I felt it was an amazing school and it was exactly like any other; I was wrong. I had not realized this until my junior year of high school. My freshman year math class consisted of eating cheese sticks and going to the gym. While at the time I felt it was the greatest class ever, I didn't actually realize how much it actually impacted me until I had a real math teacher my junior year. This new math teacher was the greatest teacher I had because I had went from junior high level math, straight to college level precalc. Mayer High School has its Pros, but its Cons strongly outweigh.
My overall experience at Mayer High School was okay. I like that Mayer only has a four day school week; Monday-Thursday 7:30 am-2:30 pm. I would like to see the discipline at my school change because the kids that go here get away with almost anything and it needs a more structured base and I also wish the school offered more higher level classes for students and more clubs or extracurricular activities for students to join. Education wise the school is good for the students willing to learn.
