Business Advisory Council

Internship at West Chester HospitalThe Mason City School District is an important component in the economic engine that powers the Mason community. As a high-performing school district known throughout Ohio and across the Midwest for academic excellence, the Mason City Schools are a “draw” for both businesses and families.
