Special Needs Students STAY AWAY from this School!! I am having one of the worst experiences of my life in this School started by my Child's IEP Not being met, and the Principal screaming at me, because my Child does not "Just deal with his issues on his own" and criticize my Parenting skills.. Please please stay away from this school, I am going through terrible moments.

if you have a special needs child DO NOT ENROLL THEM HERE! My child gets homework that is way over her head, she is in second grade and has kindergarten level reading and they still dont work with her on that. Everything is math, math ,math. If you show concern about your child they are very rude. They do not listen or care about what the parent has to say at an iep meeting... the list goes on. This has been so stressful i am considering pulling my child out and home schooling her . I have never seen a school that finds the children and their parents to be irritating, but this one does. Hopefully i can get her into a different school for next year.

I have three children that attend this school. From what i've seen there is a problem with bullying. When I addressed a issue about what has been going on with my child, she was very rude and cold. During an IEP meeting for my child she decided to play on her IPAD then try to come up with solutions to assist the team. I would not recommend children with special needs attend this school. The school is all about the money and not about the needs of the children.

The post from May 4th is disturbing to me! I have two kids attending the school for the last two and a half years and have had an enlightening experience at Mason. My third grader has weekly spelling tests, and yes, she brings home plenty of homework in multiple subjec areas. FYI There are several programs available for extra help...I guess you just have to ask! We have been given science and reading books for free, as well as computer software to help supplement lessons. My kindergartener has an amazing teacher and has steadily progressed throughout the year. Mason is an ideal environment for your child to learn and to THRIVE! The campus security has been tighter than previous years and I appreciate that. We will miss it when we PCS.

I am happy with this school. The teachers are excellent, the staff is top notch. I have no complaints about this school, I consider my family fortunate that my 2 children go there.

First of all they have no spelling tests at all and the only homework my son brings home is math homework . They have no reading classes for those who need a little help. My son will be behind his other classmates when we return to the east coast. I have never seen any books for science or history and he is in the 3rd grade.

The staff is wonderful from principal to staff to after school care. My first child attended Mason and now my second...my third child will definitely be attending Mason as well when he's ready!

I moved my daughter from Walker Elementary School to Mason Elementary school this year. My daughter is doing a lot better in 3rd grade now as she was almost failing 2nd grade. Her teacher Mrs. Martinez is fabulous and I have already seen vast improvemebts in my daughters school performance. Thank you Mason for having such a great principal and teachers who really care.

If you have a child with special needs or that receives special education services, I would not recommend Mason elementary. The principle does what is best for the school as a whole and ignores the individual needs of these precious children. You must be a strong advocate and be willing to fight for what should be automatically given! I am so sorry I chose Mason elementary for my son. The Teaches however are very good, kind and caring. I do have a child in 4th grade and she seems to be doing fabulously! Of course, she has no special needs! Unfortunately the special ed services lack and so does the principal!

Teachers there could afford to be a little more proactive without the principles instructions to do so.

We love this school. Our son has thrived in both kindergarten and first grade. They host many fundrasiers, and involve the parents as much as possible. I am very pleased with this school!

We are a military family in this area. Mason has been great. The teachers are awesome and really work with you. They help students who are in unique circumstances (dealing with frequent deployments or TADs) and help our children to grow and understand and be tolerant of others.

I am very satisfied with Mason Elementary.The teachers and staff are very much involved with the childrens education and well being. I am always helping out with my sons classroom.That way I get to see how his teacher teaches the class, and I get to help other students as well.My son's teacher is fantastic.She understands my son, and helps him with his behavior challenges. If you are looking for a school in Mira Mesa, Mason is a good one to choose..

Great school with many activities and teachers meet to discuss how to improve academics on a weekly basis.

My children's teacher have been excellent! I give top marks to the principal and vice principal. Even with a large student body, they have been extremely proactive making sure individual students needs are met. There is very low level of parent involvement in the PTA. The same dedicated core parents do all the volunteering year after year. One third of the families are military families so the student body is always in flux. This is a benefit because the children are more open to making new friends and there is less evidence of cliques. Not much extracurricular activities except the ability to sign up to learn an instrument in fourth grade.
