All School District of Philadelphia schools will open Thursday, March 22, 2018 on a two-hour delay. All buses will operate on a delayed schedule pushing morning pick up times back by two hours. We ask that parents and caregivers be patient as certain yellow bus routes may experience moderate to significant delays Thursday morning. All District-operated early childhood programs will also open on a two-hour delay. After-school activities including athletic programs and professional development sessions set for Thursday will continue as scheduled. District administrative offices will be open on-time, however we urge everyone to take their time and travel safely getting to school and work. The School Reform Commission meeting scheduled for Thursday at 4:30 p.m. will take place as scheduled.

About Us

Learn about Mayfair's Innovative Programs.


Mayfair is seeking IB authorization. As such, our instructional program follows the approach and pedagogy of IB programming. While embedding PA Core State Standards, we expect teachers to emphasize inquiry in their classrooms and to offer students opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge through multiple modalities and forms of assessment.


Mayfair embraces Leader-in-Me as a student leadership program and believes it reinforces critical norms for creating an environment conducive to teaching and learning. Its habits and mindsets offer a foundation for culture throughout the building, and we strive to develop students’ self-awareness with Leader-in-Me’s principles in mind.


Mayfair is a member of Cohort 3 of the School District of Philadelphia’s School Redesign Initiative.
