Mayer is a very caring community of teachers that work hard to provide students with much more than academics. Students can feel safe and welcomed in this small k-8 school M.G.

This school works extremely hard at keeping programs that other schools have had to cut due to lack of budget such as P.E. and Music. The teachers are great and really care about the students. My child works with a wonderful speech therapist employed by the school who goes above and beyond her job description. Mayer is a small community where students can receive individual attention they deserve.

Mayer Elementary is a small rural school with dedicated teachers, staff, and principal. I would highly recommend the school to new families moving into the area.

I am a teacher who used to teach at Mayer. Mayer has the best kids and faculty around. The teachers are very dedicated and they have great leadership with Mrs. Leonard. If you are looking for schools in the area I would strongly recommend Mayer Elementary.... Go M Town!

This is a great school with a great core of teachers who deeply care about kids. My sons class does work that I didnt see until I was in high school! Its fun because he loves teaching me how to do it when he gets home! He has a great teacher who challenges him everyday to be both a better student and a better person. Mayer Rocks!

I'm a parent and I am involved with this school. The parents that support this staff and faculty actually notice the improvements around this school. I fully trust this school with my three children. They are being challeneged and growing each day academically and socially. The teachers here work very hard to make sure that our children are recieving the best education. As far as communication goes, mine has been great because I am involved in my childrens education. Parental involvement is a big part fo success in school and it seems that most parents around here skip that part and rely 100% on the teachers. That is unfare to them for how hard they work to help our children.

I am really pleased with Mayer elementary. My son will be in first grade and my daughter in kindergarten. The principal along with the school board has really made some wonderful improvements over the last year. One of the best being the new four day school week starting this year. That will allow more study time and also more family time which we are all excited about. Over the last year the school has hired some great teachers and completely remodeled the playground. My kids love this school and I recommend it to anyone living within the area. I rate this school 4 out of 5 stars

There are only a couple of good points about this school, Mrs. Leonard (The Principal) & a handful of the staff! If you have the choice, send your kids else where!

Communication is very bad at this school. They only have a few good teachers for all the kids. The one great thing they have going for them is the Principal. She really cares about what happens, but she can only do so much. The board is a huge problem. They need to get the priorties straight. The kids should come first and that means all kids not just the ones in sports. My children have been in the scholl for several years and it is not getting any better, and that is why they won't be going back next year.

The school had some problems in the past. The new administration has really worked hard to improve everything from morale and teacher quality to facility improvements and student discipline. The school is a much better place to be now and deserves our support. A school is only as good as the parents involved, join the PTO or SITE council and be a part of the school.

My doughter has been going to Mayer since she was in Kindergarten and she will now be going into 4th grade. I have a had problems every year with the faculty and my daughter has been far advanced compared to the rest of the children in her class every year. The curriculum in no where near what it needs to be. I was learning the things my daughter did in 3rd grade in 1st when I when to school in Phoenix in the 80's. The school is one of the major deciding factors of my husband and I moving out of the area. They also are laying off more teachers the '09/'10 school year when the school is already extremely understaffed.

When i was young I went to school here, now my kids go and I am not pleased at all about it. We moved back here just after school ended last year from texas, where my son was an a,b student. This year his teacher was the worst ever she would constantly yell at the children and degrade them. subsequentially my son ended up failing most of his classes due to her not willing to help the children ( my son not the only one in the class having this problem).

The school has had its issue in the past.. My family moved here 3 yrs. ago. We have seen many things change, many different ways. One thing I can say now with the new principle on board, things have only since changed for the better. She has had a long hard road, with much ahead of her with the children of our community in mind. We are very fortunate to have her to lead our children into the future.

Communication between school staff and parents are poor. The classrooms are too full, and the children do not get the attention that is needed for them to succeed. My son has attended 2 years and last year will be his last at this school.

I think there are some great teachers at this school. Unfortunately, there are alot of discrepancies with parents, teachers, and other students. Safety is a large issue also. My son left the school play yard and almost got hit by a car.

Moved to this district two years ago from Tempe. This school is improving with some ongoing construction. Unfinished work presents some hazards to the kids this year. No PTA, and I have seen minimal parent involvement.
