|A new Mayfield program teaches students how to care for their amazing bodies, minds and spirits|
How do I deal with test anxiety? Is five hours of sleep enough? What is mindfulness? I have a bad cold—should I stay home? How do I begin to find the right college?

|Mayfield's new teachers all agree on these two things|
Mayfield’s newest faculty members come to our classrooms from a diversity of experiences. Among them is a community activist and American literature expert, a newly minted Caltech Ph.D., an alumna returning to her beloved Mayfield home and a veteran science teacher—and former football player—who sang in his college choir. We also welcome a new and kind face to our front office, a woman who has been devoted to the vocation of motherhood, raising four children while working.

April will be a big month on campus for cupcakes and balloons with multiple birthdays. And 100% of them have already made their mark as student leaders, Girl Scouts and scholars with strong academic records.
