I have 2 children in Mason Elementary! I love this school and so do my boys! I'm so blessed that I am in the attendance area for this school. The Principal Mrs. Klassen knows every kid by name and identifies their parents. I feel safe know my kids go here because I know the staff puts our children's safety as their top priority! Love them and am extremely grateful for all that they do for our kids! And now being an IB school, we are so lucky!!

5 of 10? No way. I have had 2 out of 4 kids go through Mason and just enrolled my kinder-goober. Mason IMO is no less than a 8 of the elementary schools in LISD.

The principal is great and knows nearly each student and parent in the school. Many of the teachers and other staff leave a lot to be desired. In my opinion, the children are least important in this school and I don't feel they are properly educated despite parent involvement.

There is definitely a sense of family at this school. We moved from California and are so happy with the environment. These people really care about your kids!

C.C. Mason is a place that truly puts kids first. Staff is caring and welcoming. The counselor has been wonderful with my pre-k student who was having some issues adjusting to school.

Great school! Committed to continuous improvement. The administration, teachers, and all staff have a terrific heart for kids and passion for education. They work to make a safe, fun, productive learning environment for all children. The gifted program focuses on creativity and my kids love it!! The buzz is that Mason is looking toward becoming an IB school.

My children attended Mason for 3 years. I loved every minute of it. The school administration is friendly and communicates well with the parents. My children loved going to school each day. The parent involvement is better than I had ever seen. We switched schools recently and my children are ahead of their peers at the new school even though the school is rated higher than Mason. I wish we could go back! :)

My child attends C. C. Mason and we have been extrememly pleased with the quality of learning she has received there. She participates in the school choir, and in two after school clubs. There is a better than average level of parental involvement and it has increased every year that we have been involved in the school.

All 4 of our children are enrolled in Mason also many of my nieces and nephews. My oldest started school in fall of 1999 and my last child just started PPCD today. The teachers are wonderful and academically great at teaching our children. I am very pleased with the security at this school. Most everyone knows me by name but one day a sub receptionest was there who had never met me and wanted my ID. I am so glad they are sure our children are safe. This is a great learning environment. thanks Joyce Hinton, mother of Julia, Samantha, Joshua and Caleb
