Mason City School District Reviews

Mason School District is a huge district, averaging at about 850 students per graduating class. You would expect a school this large to have a VERY large number of class and sports options. But I was disappointed to learn that MHS only teaches the standard languages (Spanish, French, German, Latin, and ASL) with the exception of Mandarin. MHS only teaches 3 of the top 10 most spoken languages in the world. And while the sports options are slightly better, I am still disappointed to hear that they canceled the gymnastics team. I was looking forward to participating in high school gymnastics but they canceled it. Overall good school, just would like to see more options for classes and activities.

The education system was excellent and had strong programs as well as amazing amount of class options. The school had a great sportsmanship and it's strongly inclined in sports, which is important for growing teenagers. This school offers a perfect mix of excellent education and many opportunities to get involved with sports. It also had many, many organizations and clubs for any interest children can have. Lastly i'd add the fact that the school itself was very big and genuinely beautiful building. However, I do think the board should take complaints about teachers more seriously. I've had many nasty encounters with teachers in my time at Mason and many other students had the same experience with those teachers too but when it's brought to the attention of the school that those teachers need to be dealt with, the school waved it off and nothing ever happened.
Mason City schools have been amazing! I have four kids and they are all different in their academic and social needs. The teachers at Mason have done an incredible job of meeting each of my kids where they are at academically. The vast array of sports and clubs have allowed my kids to get involved and create a tight group of friends in the midst of a large school district. I would recommend this district to everyone!
