Mauldin is a resource-rich school; there is constantly something to do and be a part of. But, things aren't just handed to us on a platinum platter. Mauldin is extremely grass-roots oriented, and in order to be successful, you have to work for it and rise above, and if you cheat or take shortcuts, you might get away with it at that moment, but you will not get away with it in the end. The one thing that I do believe Mauldin lacks sometimes is fairness. I've only taken a few CP courses at Mauldin, and when I did, I noticed I was treated with blatantly more disrespect than in honors courses. I think there is an obvious disparity between teachers of the different levels at Mauldin, and this is where Mauldin is unfair.

By far the best all-around, holistic high school in Greenville County (out of all public, private, and charter schools). Extremely underrated: It prepares students beyond-belief for higher education and the "real world." I learned soo much inside and outside of the classroom and met some of the greatest, deepest, friends I could ask for.

Best teachers from my experience. Period (well...mostly, other than the few who made me lose some faith in humanity...but it was more because of their attitude than their actual teaching skills).

Amount of homework: Just right
May 27, 2015
Junior and senior year I had the best balance of great teachers (who actually taught in class) and relevant, important-to-learning, homework. If I saw this question freshman or sophomore year, however, I would have put WAY TOO MUCH. It got to the point where I was averaging nightly sleep that was detrimental to my health.

I have developed more physical, mental, and moral strength in the past four years (just from going to this school) than I have in the other 14 years of my life combined.

I can sit after class and talk to most of my teachers like they are my mom or dad. Also, clubs at this school do a great job of becoming involved in the community, reaching out to others, and teaching valuable lessons. I have had one or two teachers, though, who have made me lose some faith in humanity.

Worse school in Greenville county. Teachers have no respect for students, and are just there for the paycheck. I have had many problems with my child's teachers. Maybe the school would be better if the teachers made the environment for learning better by fixing their attitudes.

Mydaughter graduated in 2009 and attended Clemson. She graduated in 4 years Magna Cum Laude in microbiology and now works for LabCorp. Mauldin High's programs and teacher help keep her on the path that Mauldin Middle and Oakview set her on. The opportunity at Mauldin is there to succeed if taken with some work and disciplin. Read, study, work hard, and ask for help when you need it. I have two other daughters who graduated from Mauldin HS. One graduated from USC Upstate and the other is a sophomore at Clemson and has made Dean's list the past 3 semesters. Parent involvement is up to the parents; Principals have changed and can't address but teachers care and want their students to succeed.

I'm about to go into my 3rd year at Mauldin. If you are a parent looking for a nice school to send your child to. I do NOT recommend Mauldin. Your child's learning environment is constantly tempered with by the intolerance and ignorance of students and even some teachers. Even with resource officers always on campus, the drug problem is still pretty bad. Hopefully with the new principal starting this school year (2013-14) we will shape up and come together as a school to improve academically and in other extracurricular activities. Even though it's not my first choice for a school, it is my school, and I have to show some pride in that, GO MAVS!

This school. I wont miss it at all, except for some friends. Word to the wise DONT get sucked into all the drugs being sold. Some of the people are genuinely scary once you get to know them. It all isn't worth a few grams trust me. No matter how much it improves your grades. It comes back later and makes everything soo much worse. Best advice I can give is join clubs or sports. I enjoyed some teachers, it was really hit or miss. I noticed the honors and college prep kids are basically kept separate, which is kinda weird. Also, whenever the hobbit comes out of her cave for food, she is rather rude to the students. Oh well, life lessons i guess. GO MAVS!!

Mrs. Miller is absolutely detached from her role. Very rude and impossible to speak with. Ms.(Dr.) Reaves the Vice Principal is nothing short of a narcissist and is obsessed with her "Dr" status. Ridiculous. Very disappointed.

Overall my Mauldin expirience has been a positive one. There are some great teachers here, of course there are also some bad ones, many sports programs that are recognized state wide, and plenty of student clubs and organizations. The student council here is particularly outstanding and hardworking! The main problem as most other people have already pointed out is the administration. I really don't feel like they care about anyone in the school but themselves. They can be very rude and disrespectful, which in turn makes the students rude and disrespectful towards them. I feel like there are some better things they could be doing with their time. However, like I said all things considered this is a great school, especially considering some of the other options nearby.

From my perspective there seems to be an adversarial relationship from the current administration towards the teachers.

My overall view of this school (I have one '08 graduate and an 08-09 sophmore) is that the school is very good for a public school, in spite of the principal. I spoke to my daughter and her friends near the end of their freshman year, and they said they almost never saw the principal. The senior agreed when asked later. These are two prime examples I can cite of a principal who seems detached from her students. Most of the teachers I've dealt with appear committed to giving the students a good education, and most of the students are there to learn (though I know there are a few exceptions, even in honors courses).

Not a good school. Too many students goofing off. I can't learn anything because so many distractions in class by other students. When I talked with the teacher about it, she informed me, 'Administration normally doesn't do anything about it.'

I had a freshman at MHS and she did get a great education; however the principal, Mrs. Miller and her administrators need to learn their role in the school setting. We had a lot of problems with that! Education is most impt so I overlooked the absence of the administrators!

I have a senior and a freshman at Mauldin this year ('07-'08). Like any school it has many pros and cons. There are many great teachers here...Mrs. Autry, Dr. Deshpande, Mrs. Farmer, Mrs. Ward to name a few. The student population is pretty diverse, which I think is great. There is a lot of Maverick pride. I would say the one down side to Mauldin is the principal, Mrs. Miller, and her administrators. Mauldin is a huge school and does require discipline, but the administrators tend to walk around the school assuming every kid is doing something wrong. I feel there is a general lack of respect for the students (on the administration end). There is also dislike between many of the teachers and the administration and this is't a healthy environment. Academically, however, I feel like my children are getting a very good education.

I am an alumni now, 07. But Mauldin is an amazing school, and one of the best places to spend those unforgetable high school years. Once a maverick always a maverick!

Mauldin High is a diverse school with a lot of great programs. It is the largest high school in Greenville County. The MHS Band is one of the top bands in the state along with several state championship sports teams that compete in AAAA. The school offers a wide variety of AP courses. There are many great teachers in the school. The Guidance department is excellent also.

Dramatic population increase has really hurt this school over the past fifteen years. Mauldin tries to act like an urban school by offering numerous AP's and loads of extracurriculars, but this is still predominantly a rural or bedroom community where a large number of parents don't really support or understand education. Too many teachers and administrators have lived here for too long - giving the place a flavor of nepotism and near in-breeding. Extracurriculars are a plus, there are some talented teachers, but many of the best things about Mauldin are superficial. This is not a community that promotes critical thinking or creative learning.

As an alumni of five years, I found that Mauldin did an excellent job of preparing me for college (at a well respected out of state private university) and for life. The teachers were amazing, and very passionate about teaching (at least they were on the honors and AP level classes I took...though I believe they were on all levels. I don't know the new principal, so I won't comment on him. The band program, which was absolutlely horrible and a joke while I was there has turned into a magnificent and well-respected program. A great school. Don't move to the area unless your kid is awesome.

So far we have been very happy at Mauldin High. They offer the advanced classes our son need. Mrs. Autry is a wonderful math teacher. Dr. D. is also kind and caring. Both teachers expect the best and bring out the best in their students.
