Many of our school district's success stories are possible because of the support of talented people and organizations in our community. Our community continuously steps up to update our facilities and technology, and to provide rich opportunities for Mason students.
This year, Mason High School provided deeper opportunities for students to partner with area businesses through guest speaker/site visits, job shadowing, and internships at ABC Pediatric Network, Assurex Health, CMO Axis, and UC Health West Chester Hospital. By participating in these experiential learning opportunities, students increase knowledge, develop essential workplace skills, cultivate a civic mindset and explore career options through direct experience and focused reflection outside of the traditional academic setting.
Booster organizations, parent committees, and civic organizations like Kiwanis and Rotary invest heavily in our students - volunteering countless hours to coordinate musical, theatrical, athletic and After Prom events, recognizing student accomplishments, and ensuring that all students (regardless of economic ability) have the opportunity to participate in school activities and events.
In its eight years of existence, the Mason Schools Foundation has provided over $600,000 in grants to take students “above and beyond.” These funds pay for programs that otherwise could not exist, and often spur innovation as Mason pioneers take risks and try new approaches. In addition, volunteerism by our booster clubs and families greatly supports student activities and school goals.
The Taste of Mason, sponsored by Mason City Schools Diversity Council, showcases our community’s diversity, and encourages community members to enjoy exciting offerings from many ethnic, and independent Mason restaurants. At the Taste of Mason, guests sample a new dish, catch up with old friends, and get mesmerized by incredible talent from multicultural acts featuring our students and community members such as classical Indian dance, performances by the Mason Chinese School, Chinese/Vietnamese Lion dance, Colombian dancers, and Mexican folk dance.
