I like all the different choices of courses that I have. Something that I would like to see change is teachers and staff being more aware of the behind the scenes bullying and meaness that goes on with students, teachers, and coaches. Teachers and coaches are supposed to be there for support and encouragement, not to make things harder for you.

Too much favoritism and not enough one-on-one time with students who need it. The teacher involvement could be reviewed and refined. The variety of sports offered is great, lots of school pride and spirit, and the music program is definitely one to appreciate. These high school students involved in the choir work on college level stuff and deserve recognition. The Speech/Drama department deserves more recognition, however. Because it also plays a big role in kids' lives who don't necessarily like to sing or play sports or do academic decathlons. It's another way to express themselves. All clubs and such deserve equal recognition amongst the school.
I thought that the Mason City Community School District provided pretty solid education, had friendly teachers, and many great students!
