Mason City High School Reviews
Mason City High School is in a great small town, with 800 students. We have lots of after school activities and sports teams. Hockey, basketball, softball, baseball, soccer, golf, swimming, volleyball, cross country, track and field, football, wrestling. The hard part is our school is the largest in our area. We have to travel to Des Moines, 2 hours each way. Mason City is competitive with the small schools around us, but not within the capital of Des Moines. We play for the love of our sports!
As a freshman, the first day of high school can be intimidating. It becomes even more intimidating when you're a freshman who just moved halfway across the country. After all the typical rumors that come with being the new girl, a few still persisted into the later semester. The problem had only continued to worsen the more I tried ignoring it, so I had to take different measures. I contacted the Dean of Students and had told him about my on going situation, including texts and online proof. The only actions the school decided to take was to talk to the girl(s) on the opposite side of the situation; worsening the problem further more. These problems continued well into my junior year with little to no repercussions. Constantly having to worry about my well being at school made me feel unsafe at an establishment I spent much of my time at and affected my learning process. Student safety should be a top priority for any school and Mason City High School is lacking.
Some of the teachers care about your education. However you will find that most teachers are pushovers and are more preoccupied with making themselves look better.
