Very few of the teachers at Mayfield High School don't go above and beyond for their students. At Mayfield, pride, tradition, and excellence doesn't only show in the students, but the faculty and staff, as well. The teachers amazed me with how much they were willing to give just to see their students thrive; whether it was time out of school, their own money, or just simply listening to the students when needed. The teachers made my high school experience unforgettable. They, like Mayfield High School in general, are the best!
