My overall experience at Mayfair High School was actually very enjoyable and will definitely be unforgettable .Since my school was on the smaller side, everyone kind of knew everyone . I enjoyed this because I felt like we were all very close and had a good bond with each other. From dances to football games the energy at every event was amazing and made it super fun. The diversity of my school made the environment very comfortable and easy to feel accepted when first arriving . Although throughout my years there I did come across a few lazy and rude teachers , I believe this is normal for every school and the large amount of good caring teachers outweighs those. To conclude, being involved and getting to know many people at mayfair allowed me to have very good high school experience .

I have been studying in Mayfair since 7th grade and it has been swell to be studying here. The courses are exceptional, the teachers and staff are friendly, and the counselors do their best in helping their students succeed. There are many extra curricular opportunities provided by the school such as athletics and CALAPS. The number of AP class opportunities also gives students a chance to earn college credit through these rigorous courses.
One of the best things about Mayfair is the interconnectedness of the students. If you are involved in a club, sport, or extracurricular, many students will find a second home within the school. Probably our biggest concern is the large gap between AP classes and regular classes. There are such great disparities between an AP class and a regular class at Mayfair, and it's hard for students who are in between the two learning levels to really figure out where they belong.
