Bold Steps

Our community has shared many consistent themes about what it values in its schools: high quality academics including a wide variety of Advanced Placement courses, engaging elective options in the arts at the elementary and secondary level, athletics, gifted and special education programming, diversity, world language offerings, and frugality.

In order to position Mason City schools for the future, together, we must develop the bold steps that are needed to achieve the vision.
