Otis A. Mason Elementary School 2

For four years running, someone at the school has reported our family to DCF apparently for an issue that we are dealing with in concert with them. They are VERY aware of the steps we are taking, but have extreme difficulty in communicating with us what they are doing. We have often received less than 24 hour notice of meetings. We have loved the teachers that our children have had, but the administration leaves a lot to be desired.

My daughter has attended Otis Mason for two years and I am extremely impressed on how dedicated and well prepared the teachers are. My daughter is an over achiever and the teachers keep her challenged at her ability level even though some of the kids are learning easier stuff. The school won a $100,000 grant from Target last spring and it allowed her to go to a 2 week summer camp on zoology the school organized. It's a pretty amazing place.

At first I was hesitant about public school but this school os top notch. it offers a ton of extracurricular activities and the teachers are phenomenal. We have been involved in the school for three years now and would not go anywhere else.

My daughter really loves this school and feels right at home. She loves the after-school program! She is a bright student and apparently that is noticed as she is brought to other classes to read to others sometimes and gets to 'help' the teacher occasionally. I also see quite a bit of parent involvent.

I, too, am extremely impressed with how courteous the safety patrols are in the morning. I also like the school a lot even though it's larger than my daughter's first school and I don't know many of the other parents yet. However, the extended day program has been a wonderful service. I was nervous about my daughter having to be 'stuck' in an after school program that may not encourage her to do her homework and that may be boring for her (just watching TV). I was happily turned around when my daughter expressed how much she enjoyed the program and I was able to get to speak with the coordinator a few times to see how much they really care about the kids.

I am so impressed with this school. My son started off the school year at Crookshank and I was really discouraged in the lack of compassion I saw for the students there. So, I had him transfered to Mason and I think it was the best decision ever. My son is happy, the teachers and principal are incredible and I really feel that when I leave my son there for the day that he is being cared for in the best way possible. Which is very hard to find. I'm a stay at home mom and when he went off to school I was really afraid that I would worry about him all day long but with this school that isn't an issue.
