High School and Student Success

A Mayfield Junior School education comes full circle when the time comes to send our eighth graders off to high school and out into the world.

Mayfield graduates are accepted to and attend excellent high schools within the greater Los Angeles area and beyond. While the choices are many and can often be overwhelming, the school takes an active role in assisting with the application process and works in partnership with students and parents to help them make thoughtful, well-informed decisions.

  • Annual High School Options Night: A community event held on Mayfield’s campus that brings representatives from independent schools from all over the West coast, the Southwest region and even the East coast together to share information about their schools.
  • High School Guidance: In the fall of the eighth grade year, students and their parents may choose to schedule a guidance conference. Students are provided information and support to help make informed decisions.
  • Application Process Information Night: Details the logistics and timing of the application process and students receive information on HSPT/ISEE test prep courses that are available in the area.
  • School visits: Both off-campus visits and on-campus special assemblies are arranged with local schools.
  • Interview Skills: Coaching for interviews is available.

In January transcript packets are sent to all of the schools selected. Beyond the transcripts and ERB test scores, recommendations from Math, English and the School are included. After testing and interviews, the waiting begins until the decision letters are mailed in March.
In keeping with our mission, the ultimate goal of the high school process is to ensure the placement of each student in a school environment best suited to his or her academic strengths, personal interests and individual needs. It is a big step to leave the familiar hallways and courtyards of Mayfield, but well prepared and confident our students thrive in the right school.
