I love MCHS.. I couldnt imagine goin anywhere else.. I am getting ready to graduate in May of 2010.. MCHS has great teachers, excellent classes for all levels of skill.. (AP and Honors for the advanced students). The teachers care enough to help with your needs so you can progress. They work on improving many skills that you may need help with. The Adminsrative staff is great. There are many extra-curricular activities to choose from (FCCLA to Reading Club and everything in Between) I couldn't dream of a better school.

Mason County is one of the best schools ever. I moved here from a private Liberal Arts school and I never want to go back. Mason County offers many great programs and teachers are there to help us with whatever we may need. The parent involvement is great and all of the staff are great. Everyone is very commited to having the best school we can possibly have and I think they're doing a very great job. I would totally reccomend Mason County.

I have read some of these reviews and they are not fair. It seems a few disgruntled students are slamming the school. We have a wonderful school system, a principal who works hard and cares about the students, teachers who make home visits and help students who fail and wonderful advanced placements classes. MCHS is one of the tops schools in the state!

We have a wonderful school system. The teachers and administrators seemed to be working hard to provide a wonderful school. There are so many AP classes to take and my student can take college classes

Out of all the schools in the state Maysville-Mason County Schools are among the worst. As a former graduate of Maysville High School I believe that even after the consolidation between Maysville-Mason that they treat them like they are inmates. We are now enrolling are 4 children into the Augusta Independent Schools District in order to bring them what my husband and I had a small school setting. I hope that many do the same.

This school is one of the two top schools in the entire state for preparing students for college, according to a 2005 study done by the Kentucky Council of Post Secondary Education. To be among the best schools in the state some times requires tough decisions by the school's leadership. The school administration may not win a popularity contest, but the results speak for themselves.

As a graduate of Mason County I feel that the school system is a great one. The teachers are some of the finest in the state, and so many of them have helped me even after my time as their student. They cannot shoulder all of the responsibility. I was a self-motivated student and I had parents that were supportive of my activities and my school. This is a responsibility for one's learning that cannot be taught in a classroom, but it directly affects a students performance in school and his success in life. Mason County is not a large school, and many people would like to see every sport or activity available for their kids, but that is just not realistic. They do a fine job with what is offered and continue to improve. I think Mason County deserves more credit than what is presented.

Mason County High School is a great place to work. I am very honored to be a teacher at a high school that excels not only in the classroom, but outside of the classroom as well. We have outstanding teachers and great leadership from our principals and counselors. My child will go to school at Mason County and I will be very proud of that.

I personally don't like the way the school treats students. They treat them like they're prison inmates. They pretend to care so that they won't have to worry about parents complaining about them. The teachers, counselors, and staff are excellent, but having negative principals just seems to overshadow the good things.

Mason County Schools are the worst. The teacher quality, though, is pretty good, as well as the parent involvement. The actions taken by the principals are too harsh on the students for doing just a few dumb things. Overall, the school gets a F, and I advise all parents to keep their kids away from Mason County. To make it worse, the school has completely eliminated driver's ed from the school.

Mason County Schools do treat students differently. Mason County does have same very devoted teachers and other staff members. But with having such a negative principal its easy to overlook the other staff. When I went to college I wasn't prepared at all for what I was now enrolled in. More time should be used to prepare juniors and seniors for the rest of their lives.

I think Mason County Schools are the worst. Yes, they do treat students differently. They assume the children are just being rebellious. I believe these children have it the worst there because it doesnt matter how hard they try, they are labeled trouble-makers, rebellious, and defiant. I think the teachers and staff need to be educated on how to teach these children or make a classroom just for them and find at least one teacher who could teach them. They also treat honor roll students better. If there was another public school here I would remove my children from Mason County School altogether.

No one in Mason County High School gets treated better than anyone else, especially athletes. I know, I am a former athlete. The school is also not based on cliques. There are such things because that's how the students make it. It is just who the students are friends with, and who they prefer to hang out with. Those are some of the worst statements I have ever heard about this school. But I do agree that the teachers need to focus more on getting us ready for college. I went all through high school and barely ever studied, and now that I'm in college, I have to study a few hours every day. At the beginning of college I wasnt ready for that, and it slowed me down some. But overall, I rate mason county a B.

As a graduate of Mason County High School; I feel too much time was devoted to Portfolio Writings and end of the year CAT's testing. Many of my fellow graduates weren't prepared for the much different college life - needed more skills in actualy grammar, math, etc. Principal leadership needed much improvement; and the faculty isn't very experienced. Athletes are treated much differently and above all other students. The school has entirely too many cliques based upon income. Although class sizes are smaller; the classes are just too spread out because students are there for show and teachers are there strictly for monetary sums. Overall the school deserves a 'D'
