Mayo High school offers many wonderful educational opportunities and extra curricular opportunities as well. The school community as a whole is well connected and the school spirit is always there. Being in the Midwest, there are still differences when it comes to diversity. It has made so many amazing changes, but the support for diversity is still trying to grow. Mental health awareness and support within the school is also trying to change and grow. It needs to improve, and with an amazing student body to lead the change, it is bound to happen. As for now, the school along with the staff needs to improve their understanding on mental health and the amount of work and issues that their students deal with. Overall, I am glad to have such a good high school experience and very lucky to have the opportunity of a variety of classes to help me explore my interests.

Mayo High School is a very welcoming and spirited school in the Rochester district. It has a lot of different opportunities for students looking to fit in to the new school environment. There are a lot of clubs and sports available to every kind of student. However, the issue of bullying should be further addressed. I know a lot of incidents of kids feeling left out because of the way they are and I think they should work to fix that!
I really enjoyed the friends I made and the rigorous coursework in the honors classes. My teachers were all very kind and most were very good teachers. I think that something they could improve on is the connection between the administration and the students. I believe that the teachers are very good at this but the administration didn’t seem to be part of the students life and didn’t help get student prepared for their future. They didn’t promote different option other than college such as trade school or vocational school or the military. They left the student figure out these options by themselves. I think they focused more on the student present education and not their future in education. Overall, they had a good spirit and comradery throughout the school but need to work on communicating between counselors and students.
