I can go on for days explaining why I enjoy all the different aspects of Mayfield! The academics are challenging and motivating, and I feel as if everyday I can come home and share with my family that I have gained more knowledge. The support from teachers, staff, and other students is astounding. If I have questions, or need help, someone is always there to guide me. Mayfield sparked my enjoyment for going to school.

Mayfield is a place that challenges you but is extremely supportive. The teachers want you to succeed and are willing to offer help and one-on-one practice. It is a place you'll long to be because everything you love is there: friends, food, sports, school (yes—school at Mayfield is fun!), arts, and many more.

— Kayla T. ’22

I love that at Mayfield, you can participate in whatever you like and try so many different things to expand your interests. I also love how welcoming the community is and the amazing friends I have made. At Mayfield, you can truly be whoever you want to be. It gives you an opportunity to find yourself while giving you an amazing education beyond what is written in the textbooks. The faculty and staff really go above and beyond to make you successful and provide you with all the support you need to succeed.

— Stephanie R. ’21 (UNLV '25)

Mayfield is not an ordinary high school. It is the place that becomes your second home and where you meet the people that you look forward to seeing everyday. Mayfield has always been there for me and pushed me to become a better version of myself even when I doubted myself—I always have support no matter what.
