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.

Mayfield High School is an absolutely fantastic institution to be a part of. There's a massive diversity in the types of classes every student has the chance to take. Moreover, there are several different class types from standard to self-paced to online. In fact, Mayfield has recently implemented a full-day self-paced option for seniors. Furthermore, the administration at Mayfield is very involved with the student body and does not restrict students from any form of self-expression. The school and the students are never at odds with one another and the school definitely listens to and accommodates the students' opinions and views. Finally, there is a giant list of extracurriculars that a student can take part in and every interest is represented and encouraged.
The teachers are encouraging and supportive. They make all students feel comfortable to confront them with any issues and are very helpful with resolving the issue. The students are excepting and full of spirit!! There is a zero tolerance policy for bullying and it is strictly enforced. Fortunately, we have been blessed to be apart of a tight knit community where bullying is a rare occurrence that is taken very seriously. Our school clubs and activities also help to create a positive environment that connects students with each other and with teachers.
