Message from the Principal
Instructional Vision: Mayfair School
The learning environment at Mayfair School is one in which all members of the school community respectfully work together with the ultimate goal of guiding students toward their highest level of achievement. The co-teaching model adopted by our school provides the least restrictive environment for all students, and creates opportunities for staff and student interaction that allow everyone to learn to appreciate individual strengths as they strive toward meeting academic goals. While the core curriculum is followed with fidelity, daily instruction is enhanced with strategies that differentiate instruction to meet individual needs. Students use computers as 21st century tools to enhance their learning and further their educational outcomes. They also have access to a school library with a certified school librarian.
Climate and safety are important components of the Mayfair culture. Parents, staff and students work together to insure high expectations in both academics and behavior. The K-8 structure allows for the development of leadership roles for older students and positive role models for the younger ones. Mayfair’s Mustang Program sets the standard for leadership and behavior in the school. A positive behavior plan supports growth by decreasing negative behavior.
Mayfair’s school plan is a living document that adapts to the ever-changing needs of our ever-changing population. The Leadership team works to support programs that insure equity for all students so that each individual may become both socially responsible and academically successful.
