The Principal of this school understands what community is. This is the perfect subset of students to segregate and nurture in their own school. 5th graders get to practice "moving on" in a safe environment and 6th graders get to stay in a more structured day to day setting than a true middle school allows. This 5/6 set up allows our children to learn to adjust to change in a wonderful and supportive way. We love the choices our city schools make.

What a wonderful place for my son to spend 2 years of his life. He has been at Mayfield for a year and a half now and has thrived! The two year program before middle school has had a great effect on him. He has grown so much socially as well as academically. All the teachers he had as well as the administration took an interest in him. We are looking forward to Metz but being my youngest we sure will miss Mayfield next year.

Ok, so this school wasn't the best, but it certainly wasn't the worst. I have come from both sides of the equation. I was in non-GT my 5th grade year and GT my 6th grade year. I was underchallenged my 5th grade year. It didn't help that I was put in my opinion the lowest teir. The teacher I have nothing against. The students needed work. My 6th grade year was phenominal (thank you Mrs. King and Mrs. Groundwater) I sometimes quote it as one of my top 5 years. And yes, the GT program sometimes is a lot of work, especially getting into it. The administrators were great when I was there. Though I am aware that a power shift had occured.

As the parent of an autistic child, I had some concerns about my son attending Mayfield. The teachers and staff made a point of inviting my son and his classmates to visit the school prior to the beginning of the school year so that he could get "the lay of the land" and an idea of how he would move through the building before his first day. As a result, his transition from elementary school has been fantastic, and he is excelling. He enjoys going to school, and comes home in a good mood. Pretty much the entire staff, from the principal on down, has been communicative and receptive in helping my son learn and grow. My daughter attended Mayfield from 2008-2010, and had an excellent experience there as a GT student. She moved forward well-prepared for the next step in her educational journey. Schools really don't get much better than this, even the private schools. Two children, one GT and one special needs, have attended this school and excelled with the help of an incredible staff. One more to go (he'll be there in two years), and I look forward to it. I'm grateful to have such a high-quality school available to my children.

Students are intermingled regardless of capability. If your child is not GT you have to fight for attention and challenge. My child is being assessed for GT - if she doesn't make it we'll be getting outside assessment help because there is <no> way she can thrive in a "regular" classroom.

I finished Mayfield this year. And I've been there for 5-6th grade. And I agree. That the teachers don't get what GT means.we were the only class with so much homework! I had to eat dinner like at 11 and go to bed like at 12 am! And I started doing my hw at 4pm. The teachers don't understand that we are STILL KIDS! NOT some robots. We got double the load of regular classes. My teacher expected us to be quite when she was talking to another teacher that interupted the TEACHING TIME!! We are kids, and are going to be kids. No matter what. And the kids who are not in GT are respectful and take school serious. Some GT kids are HORRIBLE!!!!!! Over all, Mayfield is AWESOME!

I went to Mayfield when it was brand new, three years ago. . I was in the GT program and I loved it, but the older you get the more you understand what is going on. The majority iof the teachers don't understand what GT is really about. It is about being on an advanced level and wanting to learn. However, we are still kids and are going to act like kids, the teachers don't understand this and put us on a pedestal like we are the statue of perfection. It puts a lot of pressure on us, sometimes a little too much pressure. The teachers dont understand that wse are supposed to get advanced work, not just double the load of regular classes. Just to give you a sample of what GT is really like.

Mayfield is a great school. They have some great caring teachers (Ms Sutton and Mr Tressler!) and bad, like any other school. We did have an issue with bullying (I think it's the age), which the school could have addressed better. We contacted the parent ourselves and the problem was resolved. The administration seems to do a good job.

I am 6th grade student at Mayfield, and I LOVE IT! The education is wonderful, and so are the teachers! And yes, I do agree that there is a bullying problem (I was bullied in 5th grade). And it is not true that the 'GT' kids seem to be respectful. The other classrooms are not different then the 'GT' classes. We do the same exact things, and there are respectful, coopertive kids, and kids who understand that school is a place to learn. I am not in 'GT', and I LOVE SCHOOL and HOMEWORK! I am upsatairs again for this 2009-2010 school year, and I love my teacher! So it is not true about what the number 1 of the reviews said!

My 5th grader has done very well in the 2008-09 school year at Mayfield. However, she was placed in the 'GT' classes. I have a friend whose 5th grader was not in 'GT' classes and he hates going to school. There is a huge difference in classroom environments; the 'GT' kids seem to be more cooperative and respectful and understand that school is a place for learning, while the other classrooms are filled with the opposite types of attitudes. It is unfortunate. Overall, we have been pleased as parents in our experience with Mayfield. And yes, bullying has been a problem for my friend's child and the teachers didn't have much help to offer.

Mayfield Intermediate is an excellent example of modern education. There is a WIDE range of clubs, sports, and organizations that students can participate in. The academic oppurtunities also are not available to fifth graders at any elementary school. You would be very hard pressed to find a student that is not happy at Mayfield.

My child attended Mayfield it's opening year. He was a 5th grader......we switched school districts so he would not have to attend there for 6th grade. Bullying was a big problem...quality of education was another. Teachers were aware of bullying but said there was not much they could do....my son was behind when he started school this year even though he made good grades there.

Mayfield is an excellent school. My child had the wonderful opportunity to spend two years at Mayfield. The administration is superior. They are involved in all activities, concerned about the students and supportive to the parents. The teachers consistently provide a safe, challenging, and encouraging environment for learning and growth. The clubs and extracurricular activities are varied and designed with the age group in mind. The PTA is active and provides many opportunities for the students. My only regret is that my child only can spend 2 years at Mayfield.

My daughter attended Mayfield's inaugural year and I have only positive things to say. The staff is wonderful and very attentive to the needs of the students. The administrative staff's focus on academic programs and activities is commendable.

This is a beautiful new school, my child was excited to attend its opening year. They seem to busy with their 'meetings' to care about their students safety. I am very disappointed in the administration. I honestly fear for the safety of my child in this school. Bullying has been a huge issue that remains unresolved. Without the care or concern of the staff for their students. Overall, I feel they are more concerned with the appearance of the school than they are with the safety and ability to receive an education without fear of bullies. That concerns me deeply as a parent.

This school is a wonderful transition school from elementary to middle. For this school to have just opened this year, they really have it together.
