I love going to school at Mason County high school. Everyone is always helping each other out. The teacher's are very invested in the students and they always find time to help anyone who needs it. Our academic program provides so many options for our students. We have honors classes, advanced placement classes, and college classes in our high school which allow students to get a jump start on college credits. We also have many extra curricular activities for students to participate in. The athletic programs here are also great. The school is always supportive of our sports teams which brings our school closer together. Overall I feel that our school is amazing. It may be small and it may not have a bunch of people but the environment is very friendly.

MCHS is a great school that has amazing teachers and amazing programs. This school is very tech forwards with how each student gets there own chrome book to use for studies, and its great because the world as we know it is getting more and more digital so getting this exposure to technology use is great. This school also does not allow any form of bullying which makes this school a place for expressing emotions. Also our schools steam program is great as well, its a spin off of the nationwide stem program that includes Ag and just tackles several carrier pathways. This school is super cool and would recommend this school for anyone.
Mason County High School is, overall, a decent school. There is a large importance put on sports, and sometimes it overshadows academics. There are some incredible teachers, but like any school, they come with some equally unsatisfying teachers. Many of the clubs and extra curricular activities are top notch in the state. All in all, I believe this school needs some improvements structurally speaking; it is a little outdated. The faculty are generally ares nice as they can be. There isn't much of a bullying problem amongst students and everyone generally gets along well. Mason County High School is a good school for its size and location.
