To provide the optimal learning environment to nurture the whole child and develop independent, creative thinkers who act with integrity and make a positive contribution to our world!
Mayo Demonstration School selects students through a lottery from all four quadrants of the city, creating a diverse population of students. Our scholars participate in a wide array of hands-on learning experiences that cater to different learning styles to generate a deeper understanding of academic concepts. Students at Mayo benefit from creative field trip opportunities, including the Chickasaw Heritage Center, Great Salt Plains, Crystal Bridges Museum, Woody Guthrie Museum, Woolaroc and the Oklahoma City Memorial.
A NON-TRADITIONAL ENVIRONMENT
Mayo Demonstration School greatly values student engagement, and we believe keeping students active is one of the top ways to keep them engaged. Rather than using a traditional row of desks, our classrooms are outfitted with tables, which create a collaborative environment. In addition, every classroom has a sofa and bean bags, and third grade classes utilize yoga balls instead of chairs. Most teachers offer movement breaks, such as interactive board games or dancing, to get the kids moving for a few minutes each day. These approaches to learning keep our students motivated and focused.
