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.

— Holly G. ’23

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.
