George Clooney is the native son of this fast-growing Cincinnati suburb, which ranked on CNN Money’s “Top Places to Live in the United States” in 2010. Residents enjoy small-town life with some state-of-the-art attractions — including the Lindner Family Tennis Center, two water parks, and Kings Island theme park (voted “best kids' area” in the United States for nine consecutive years by Amusement Today). A family town with 67.5% of its households containing married couples, Mason boasts a school district that earns a perfect score every year on its Ohio Report Card. Classrooms are new and up-to-date, with 4,600 computers in the district — one for every 2.6 students.
William Mason High School excels in multiple arenas. Although it spends $1,901 less per pupil, it is one of Ohio’s Academic Top Ten and a silver medalist on Newsweek’s list of the top public high schools nationwide. How does it do more with less? Enthusiastic student involvement may play a role. Students have reached state championships in numerous areas including the math team, debate team, girls’ basketball, and girls’ track team. The school newspaper and wind symphony are also among the state’s best. Graduating students have entered every Ivy League school and received athletic scholarships in a dozen sports. Contributing heavily to the success is a young, highly motivated faculty that includes two Ohio Social Studies Teachers of the Year.
