The information on great schools is not current! The 2010-2011 school year is the second year in which Mason has been SAU89, serving students in grades K-5. During middle school and high school, our students attend Milford. Mason is not part of Mascenic Regional. It would suffice to say Mason Elementary is a hidden gem! The teachers are passionate about their work. The smaller class size allows children to receive attention & be challenged, and communication is easy. All school staff, not just primary teachers, are recognized for their important roles. Our students curriculum is enhanced with specials that include music, French, art, PE, and computer lab. Let's not forget food services- real homemade food is offered. Plus, kids have outdoor recess at a beautiful playground. This year we have a drama club to include actors and artists. Mason is not large enough to support its own sports teams, but parents can easily access sports through neighboring towns. If you are considering a move to or within NH, don't overlook this great town with a great school that is continuing to grow and improve.
I have two students enrolled in Mason Elementary School. The school has been a positive place for both of them. My oldest child attended Milford Elementary before coming to Mason and she prefers Mason over the larger school experience she had in Milford. my youngest has only attended in Mason, and his class is one of the largets in Mason history. Many people believe that as a small school, Mason is lacking in resources. This simply isn't true. The quality of education my children are getting is second to none, and they have ACTUAL math, not that 'new match' that other schools are teaching. I can actually help my kids with their hoework again, I highly reccomend Mason Elementary School to any parent that wants their child to have a strong education.
