Our unified and trustworthy community exists when we commit to:

  • Focus on learning and growth
  • Consistency in adhering to school procedures
  • Maintaining positive communication: from administration, among our teacher teams, with our students and with their parents.
  • Being a positive, active role model for all students
  • Safety for all, both physical and emotional
  • Demonstrate mutual respect and remember that everyone has a story

Our Mission

At Mayer Magnet School we are proud of our commitment to educate with purpose and inspire each child to his/her full potential.  We do this through our innovative teaching methods that foster intellectual curiosity and promote the values of an engaged community.

Core Beliefs

At Mayer we strive to instill a focus on our Bulldog Pride values throughout our school community so that we maintain a welcoming school focused on learning for all students.

Pupil Care

We are the only CPS school that offers a Montessori program for elementary education and an International Baccalaureate program for middle school. Additionally, our Fine Arts program is integrated throughout. Through these programs, our students develop critical thinking skills, have leadership opportunities, learn individual responsibility and concern for community.
