Mason City School District Reviews

Academic-oriented environment, where some are very high achieving and motivated and some just not. Largest public school in Ohio, much diversity compared to other local schools, lots of opportunities but it can be easy to get lost in so many resources, people, and the building. Countless clubs and organizations and very convenient or easy compared to other schools to find people of your similar interest. Since there are so many people there is at least one that you share a similar interest with. People are friendly, generally a nice environment where lots of focus goes into academics but usually the trend is student well being nowadays.

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.
