Middle School

The Mason City School District continues to strive to provide the best possible service to meet the needs of our gifted students. Mason Middle School has expanded its offerings for students as they prepare for high school and beyond and to that end we have amended and expanded our service plan for gifted, effective for the 2012-2013 school year.

New for Mason Middle School 2012-2013

  • Mason Middle School students will have the opportunity to earn high school credit over the next two years. Course options have been revised in order for Mason Middle School students to have greater access to high school credit course options (i.e. up to 1.0 credit Spanish, 1.0 credit math, and an additional .5 credit in health, art, band, chorus, orchestra, and study skills). Some Mason Middle students can earn up to 2.5 high school credits before entering Mason High School.

  • Honors Math will continue to be offered for gifted students who qualify.

  • Gifted students are encouraged to participate in a variety of clubs and /or activities which will enhance their leadership skills and/or sharpen their academic passions (i.e. Student Council, National Junior Honor Society, WEB Leaders, a service organization - Helping Hands/Builders Club, Mock Trial, Power of the Pen, Math Counts, etc.)
