Mason Elementary is located in a diverse and multicultural area, and is also one of the main schools for the local Marine Corps base at Miramar. Normally I would feel at a school in this type of situation would struggle for identity and consistency. With that said, it does not. They have embrace their unique situation and admitted something special. From the teachers who actually teach to the principal who actually cares both about the teachers and about the students. I am truly impressed both with their attitude and with their successes. Mason Elementary is truly a great school!

The kids are taught to be tolerant of each other and their differences. I've seen a love for learning from the kids I didn't see before

Wonderful school. Love the new administration! The new principal has made wonderful changes. She really cares about the students learning and being engaged. She makes herself a presence in the classrooms.

There is new leadership at Mason and it is very evident! It is a very open and friendly campus. The teachers are awesome and my kids are turning into great thinkers. I love that they are preparing them for life. There is quite a bit of technology here as well.

I have two children who currently attend this school and one who moved to middle school. This year I have seen my child grow to love reading and writing. The atmosphere is happy and welcoming. The front office is new and has made a great first impression. The students are friendly and welcoming. The teachers are really focused on reading and writing. We love this school. My experiences with staff ha been positive. I am an active parent who isn't afraid to ask questions. Parking and drop off is an issue however it's parents who are not following the law causing issues. Looking forward to many more years.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

Seems the grade level teachers work as a team and plan as a team. You will see same things happening in the classrooms

Amount of homework: Agree

This year we didn't have much homework which was great. We had lots of family time. Hope this continues

They value team work, collaboration, and each other. Students talk about their issues and work as a team to solve problems

I sent my kids here because we came to a new military base and this is where we were assigned. The school is what you make of it. SOME of the teachers are great. I think the vice principal (she will be the principal next year) is extremely rude and not a people person. They also need to figure something out when it comes to parking so parents can walk their kids in without parking blocks away. The drop off/pick up zone is a big joke. The people running it think they are police officers, threaten people and over step their boundaries all the time.
