At a time of challenge to Ohio schools, Mayfield has not only held its own, but has, in fact, progressed. Academic achievement remains strong, and Mayfield Schools again earned the “Excellent with Distinction” rating from the Ohio Department of Education on the Ohio Report Card. The rating, however, is only one measure of Mayfield’s excellence. In addition to producing 6 National Merit Semifinalists and one National Merit Commended Scholar (cover picture), Mayfield High School was named one of the best high schools in the U.S. by Newsweek, proving Mayfield is excellent in more ways than one.
Just look at Mayfield High School which recently was named one of America’s best high schools by Newsweek. Above, pictured are Mayfield’s National Merit Semifinalists Margaret Cregan, Nicholas DiCesare, Morgan McGrath, Evan Kominsky, Michael Kramer, Steven Pham and National Merit Commended Scholar Kristene Tadese .
Strict financial planning and $2.5 million in budget cuts allowed the Mayfield City Schools last spring to stretch its levy request from three to four years. Fiscal
responsibility is one of the reasons Mayfield City Schools received its 14th consecutive Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
The district construction program, approved by voters in 2008 and financed by bonds, remains on time and on budget. Throughout the district, teachers and students are learning in the updated and safe buildings they deserve. Once the renovations are finished, residents will be proud to see how our Board of Education stretched every dollar and took advantage of cost savings at every turn to renovate our schools.
