Mayo High School for Math, Science & Technology is the place to be! As soon as you step on campus, you can feel the love that everyone has for each other. Everyone here is family. Our name may say that our main focus and strengths are mathematics, science, and technology, but on the contrary, our school is strong in ANYTHING we put our minds to. It’s a safe campus and we have a honor code. Seriously, we can leave our items sitting outside and come back with everything in tact! If you love small environments then this is the place to be. I know it may sound crazy, but I've never had someone take the time to get to know all of their students the way our principal does. In fact, our whole faculty and staff genuinely loves and cares about us. With me being a senior, I know that I couldn't have been more prepared. I will be going to college with college credits and extra knowledge of how to prepare for life thanks to programs that we have during school called "Phoenix Phocus".

Mayo High School is absolutely GREAT! My teachers have effectively prepared me for what is to come in the real world. I totally believe that college will be a breeze for me. Im happy that my school offers preforming arts organizations, such as symphonic band, because I get to truly explore my talents. Ive seen many talented, successful people come from Mayo High School.
Mayo High School for Math, Science, and Technology is a wonderful High school, riddled with wonderful faculty, staff, and students! The current Principal, Arlene Wallace is a wonderful, caring woman, with a beautiful soul! She also has a heart of gold, and treats each and every student like one of her own. As for the students and staff, they're all helpful, nice, caring, and just all around awesome people! I wouldn't change a thing about this place!
