About

The Mayfield Crier is a student-run news publication at Mayfield Senior School, an all-girls, independent, Catholic, college preparatory high school in Pasadena, California.

The Crier is a forum for student expression, written by students for the benefit of Mayfield Senior School’s community. Our goal is to report relevant issues to the best of our ability.

For the 2021-2022 school year, the Crier is excited to finally be back in the newsroom publishing in print while continuing to develop our online presence. Our goal for this school year is to continue highlighting important topics surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will celebrate reuniting in person with our community and will cover the transition to a post-pandemic world. 

Throughout the year the Crier will be redesigning parts of our website. We are ecstatic to announce the launch of our brand new podcasts, written and developed by our staff.

The Crier wishes you an easy transition back to campus and hopes you have a wonderful school year filled with lasting memories.
