Mason City School District Reviews
Review Mason City School District
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.
What I enjoy about Mason City Schools is how much the district has to offer for its students, from teachers willing to help students prepare for upcoming tests after school to the various resources and facilities available. I feel like Mason has prepared its students very well for college with its wide variety of Honors and AP courses, and its practically endless list of extracurricular activities. While the student culture could be stronger, it is quite a tight knit community that is welcoming to many kinds of people from all kinds of backgrounds. Overall, I have enjoyed my time in the Mason City School District greatly.
There was nothing that I didn't like growing up in the Mason City School District. I feel very blessed to have lived in such a nice and put together town. Even though there were about a thousand students in my graduating grade, everyone was extremely close and had their own spot in the school. Living in mason you were walking distance or just a short drive from any restaurant, sports facility, Kings Island, ice cream parlor, you name it. It was one of the safest towns I have ever lived in, you could walk around at any given time day or not and never feel off about your surroundings. It was a great community, and definitely a place and school district I would want my children growing up in.
