This school really helps my children they've been getting advanced in all their classes. The teachers really care and work hard with the children and encourage them to work harder and achieve new goals. I love the mustang program and my daughters are both in it which also makes them work harder to get special things to do.Go Mayfair school in my opinion Mayfair School is the best in this area.
I am a student at Mayfair School. I used to think that it is an OK school, but this year since there are new staffs, I'm a little unconcerned about that. 1. The computer teacher says you do things when its just an accident. Like, you dont want it to happen but it just pops up on your screen. 2. The subsitutes ( I think only 1) they give you either an A if you finish your work that they give you or a F if you dont. I only had 4 more questions. It took me time because I had to read, tag, and write neatly. Also, 2 other kids in my class got an A but they didn't even finish it. They just said they were done, Handed in their work, and she didn't even look at it. 3. I sorta think this school is not so good because a lot of kids learn inapproapriate things from other students. BUT, I do like the safety issue in our school, the new principle and vice principle. I am really that there are counselors for the children to talk to about their feelings and concerns.
I'm a student at Mayfair. I am mentally gifted, so I'm in the MG program. The teachers are patient if you don't understand something. There aren't any real behavior problems because the teachers do there job, making sure everyone's safe and everyone's on the same track. No child is rushed everyone goes at there own speed. There are A LOT of kids in MG. Which is great! Every year they do a talent show. But, the thing that bothers me about the talent show is that it is only for kids in 5th grade and up. That's annoying to me because I love to sing and 3rd and 4th grade I was so excited about the talent show and I couldn't wait! I love Mayfair Elementary School! I would suggest that you send you're kid there!
I have two children in Mayfair. Both students are advanced and receive honors. I am extremely pleased with the quality education that my children receive at Mayfair. The administration and staff of Mayfair provide enriched curriculum coupled with fundamentals and goals, preparing students for high school and beyond. Mayfair is an excellent school. Education is dependent on a strong parent / school relationship. As the parent I am ultimately responsible for insuring that my children are receiving a quality education and that the school is meeting the needs of the students.I do not assume that my school is meeting local and national educational standards, I have researched it and I can confirm that Mayfair is meeting above any other local schools public, private and parochial. I encourage all parents research their schools information. And I recommend that all parents take part in school activities and volunteer. I have found that doing so has provided me with first hand experience to gauge my overall satisfaction with both the school and my childrens progress.
this school is the best school in the 19149 area I wish i was at that school
i have 3 kids that means i tried a lot of schools including the private ones. but mayfair school is the best one i tried so far. i love it and my kids do too . i don't think i'm switching them again not even for a charter school.
My son recently went to mayfair for one month from a Catholic school. The first week he thought was great. no dicipline and plenty of bad examples from other kids that he nicely picked up. let's just say he is back in a Catholic school. My son actually wanted to be diciplined again he said the teachers are night and day from Catholic school teachers from their attitudes down to their dress codes, this is comming from my sons mouth, not mine. And i definitly agree with the parent that said the principle and teachers have no control over those students . It's like a zoo. I as a parent never experienced anything like it.
This school is so great! My daughter transferred here in September and every one welcomed her with open arms. Her reading and math skills improved immediately. Way to go Mayfair School!!!!!
Mayfair is wonderful! My stepson has ADHD and has been attending Mayfair elementary for the past 2 years and has thrived. The teachers are great and work with the kids.
My daughter just started third grade here because we just moved. Only to find out Phila grants teachers based on sets of grades total students not per grade. Example if there are 130 3rd graders, school will give one teacher to every 30, so that would give one extra teacher for the 10 over 120 therefore allowing smaller classes. Philadelphia groups for example, 3rd and 4th numbers together to provide teachers. This leaves one grade short somewhere and allows split classes as my daughter has. She is being taught her work them givin an assignment so the teacher can slide to the 4th grade and teach them. Bad system
The school is great. My son is in kindergarden and is reading on a 1st grade level already. The teachers try to involve you in everything going on.
Teachers are very caring. Students are well behaved. Test scores are highest in the area.
This school is great my 7th grader is reading above her reading level and my kindergarten child is reading at a mid 1st grade level. Another thing that is really good is there is a lot of parent involvment and they also encourage it. Another plus is that they let parents of students work in the building so you can see how your children are doing and how well the school deals with the few problems they have if thay have any.
Mayfair is an excellent elementary school. My child is in kindergarten and is already reading at a mid-1st grade level. Their reading and writing programs are great, and the teachers are really dedicated to making sure all of the children do well. I've compared this school's test scores with others in the district and Mayfair is one of the top schools. I'd recommend this school to everyone!
The leadership at this school is very poor. The present administration is poor in discipline, poor in principal/teacher relations and is more concerned about teacher absences than quality education. Teacher morale is very low.The atmoosphere is very negative as opposed to the atmosphere ten years ago.
