As I can see only the people who dislike this school have cared to write a review. All my children go to this school, and they love it! As I have seen from the other reviews they have said that kids are pushed behind if they find it hard to learn. This is not necessarily the best statement I have seen that some students obviously do not try at getting their work done to make the grade and that is one of the main reason they struggle is because they do not try to receive the quality education maysville offers. With excellent sports including an excellent football program, basketball, and wrestling maysville has had many years of doing great in athletics. Aside from sports there are many organizations to join and many other ways to enjoy this school.

I had one graduate from Maysville High and I was very disappointed in the education that she received. The dropout rate is high, staff caters to the few, and those who struggle with their grades are pushed aside. Maybe if the school staffs underlying philosophy was no child left behind meant helping all the students to find the positives for their struggles and support their kids maybe this school would be successful.

they have the kids telling EVERYONE in their familes the school needs more money more money, if you look at the eduction level and pay raises this district gets it makes you sick. FOCUS ON EDUCATION NOT YOUR POCKETS!!

Well I have a freshman and a senior, they both have gone to Maysville there whole life. All the teachers have been really nice to them. All the priniples they have had have been a good help to our school. Even though some years we thought that they would close our school down from all the rumors and the school not getting alot of money from the state. But the school have good sports and a nice little school. The teachers push the children to do better in every class. I have really liked this school district.
