Maverick Logo

The Official Seal of Mauldin High School is enclosed by ribbons in the school colors of orange and white. The motto AGE QUOD ADIS means finish what you attempt. The original founding date is 1927 - the new founding date is 1973. A Maverick head is the school mascot. The shield is divided into four parts: the American flag symbolizes Freedom; the open book symbolizes knowledge and wisdom (SAPERE AUDE - dare to be wise); the magnolia symbolizes abundance and natural beauty; and the white clouds in a blue sky symbolize a serene community, free of pollution and congestion, while the spire with cross symbolizes character.

Mission

The administration, faculty, and staff of Mauldin High School, in conjunction with the students, their families, and the community, shall provide every student the opportunity, challenge, and support to realize his or her educational potential and the ability to assume a productive role in a democratic society.

We Believe:

  1. Students learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning.
  2. Students learn best when they have appropriate opportunities for success.
  3. Each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional, and intellectual needs.
  4. Exceptional students (e.g., special education, limited English proficiency, talented and gifted, etc.) require special services and resources.
    Cultural diversity can increase students’ understanding of different peoples and cultures.
  5. Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the schools mission.
  6. Schools need to function as a learning organization and promote opportunities for all those who have a stake in the success of the school to work together as a community of learners.
  7. The commitment to continuous improvement is imperative if our school is going to enable students to become confident, self-directed, lifelong learners.

The student will:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to gather and use information to solve problems.
  2. Demonstrate the ability to work independently and with others.
  3. Demonstrate proficiency in basic academic skills and be able to apply them in everyday life.
  4. Demonstrate the ability to set goals and to develop plans for achieving them.
  5. Develop an awareness of the diversity of other cultures and demonstrate respect toward all students, teachers, and members of the community.
  6. Demonstrate the ability to reason logically and think creatively and critically.
