My experience at Mayfield High School has been bittersweet. I have gone through various ups and downs throughout my four years, but I was always able to rely on my teachers and classmates to get me back on track. Mayfield is very diverse. We have various activities ranging from sports, to performing arts, to specific clubs and organizations. There is literally a club for every interest and/or belief that a student may have. All-in-all, Mayfield High School has been a decent experience for me, and I would recommend going to Mayfield for future students.

Great Tradition! We hold one of the biggest revelries in the country! We have great class spirit. Helpful teacher and positive atmosphere. Great academics, sports, clubs. Uplifting surroundings. We stay very close to tradition so once a Trojan, always a Trojan!
Mayfield high school is a great high school! The teachers are really dedicated to helping the student learn. Many of the teachers also talk about the importance of our future, which is something I really liked to see. The counselors also put extensive time into talking about college. Something I would like to see change is the amount of effort being put into studies. If high schools would stress the importance of education, more people might take high school more seriously.
