Mayfair High School Reviews

Overall Mayfair High School was a decent school to attend. Yes, the academic area of the school was exceedingly well but the school did lack much diversity and freedom of speech. Mayfair had many oppurtunities for young students to get a head start in experiencing different careers through their ROP program. There was also an superb selection of AP classes available for any student wanting to get ahead. While topics such as academics are important, there is another proponent of the High School experience that is missing, and that is diversity. Over my 6 year attendance at Mayfair High School, I have only received 2 African-American educators and 4 Hispanic educators. The educational staff at Mayfair predominantly consists of white males, which is a problem because this strips the high school student of much needed diversity.

I've attended both Mayfair Middle and High school with a total of 6 years. I would advise all to simply find the right crowd and passion at this school because both are very diverse. The teachers are honestly very strong in their abilities to educate and demonstrate the curriculum as well as in getting the students involved. In fact, Mayfair even hosts a Students versus Faculty basketball game in order to raise funds for seniors in the form of scholarships. The Associated Student Body works diligently to raise school spirit and establish a positive vibe among the Monsson family. Although the food in the cafeteria, also known as the Multipurpose Building, or MPB for short, is not the greatest, it is bearable however. Nonetheless, Mayfair is a well rounded and great school for students to attend.
I loved this school as far as anything except for science. All the teachers help when help is needed, and challenge us to do our very best. Very nice classrooms and they are very clean. Bullying is not a problem, my classmates are nice and chill.
Education level is very high. I learned so much in just one month! This school deserves a GREAT review. I have thought about giving a 5 stars, but on a second thought, some teachers gave a large amount of homework that I cannot finish excellently in a limited time.
