As a military spouse, it is difficult to know what a school will be like before choosing to send your kids there. We moved to the DC area a year ago, knowing no one at Mason Crest, and we continue to be amazed by our good luck in stumbling upon such a fantastic school. The 3 principals are always visible, know every student, and cultivate a professional, positive, and loving culture among their staff. The student population is diverse, which creates exactly the environment I want for my kids.
For the past year, I have been a substitute teacher at Mason Crest. At first, I was concerned that maybe it wouldn't be as amazing at I thought it was, once I saw 'behind the scenes.' But it has surpassed my expectations, and my kids and I have loved being there every day.
The teachers and wonderful support staff really do meet the needs of EVERY kid, and it's a privilege to be a part of this award-winning school.
We can't say enough good things about this school and are lucky our kids attend here. Mr. Butler, Ms. Kerr and the outstanding teachers at Mason Crest are wonderful and care about the kids so much. They also communicate well with the parents. 5 stars.
Strong academics, wonderful teachers that work as a team to best find the perfect fit for each child, and the administration is fantastic! Mr. Butler and Ms. Kerr are always out of their offices finding ways to engage students and are very personable and welcoming. The staff and educators make families feel like part of the team. This is truly a very special place and we are so happy and privileged to have our children attend here. There is a reason that everyone who works here is smiling all day long, they are supported and know how special a place this is.
This school in only two years of existence is making a name for itself. It is one of the best schools in the area and having traveled extensively with my family I would say in the country! The teachers are fabulous! They take the team approach to helping all students. The PTO is welcoming and actively seeks support for the school. The office staff is as friendly as they come. They make you want to work there! It is a friendly and welcoming place and my older daughter who did not have the pleasure of attending Mason Crest says it is like Disney World for learning! To give this school a 5 would be a disservice! The Administrators Mrs. Kerr and Mr. Butler are extremely visable and are very willing to share their vision of Mason Crest and how it functions as what the call a professional learning community. We had friends move from private school to come here. Amazing Atmosphere to learn and thrive!
Absolutely the best. Brian Butler is a wonderful principal who is engaged and really cares about his students. He gave us a personal tour because we moved to the area just before the school year started. He knew the names of all the students we passed in hallways and classrooms. Front office is very helpful and friendly. Communication between teachers and parents works well. Our child loves to go to school every day. Needless to say, the school is brand new and thus they have the newest technology, great gym and library, as well as art, computer, and music rooms. So glad that our child can go to this great school.
Where do I start? The Administrators are simply the best! They know the students and call them by name, they care about and support the students outside of school, they expect excellence in their teachers, they support the PTO 100%, they support and address parents concerns in a timely manner, anti bullying atmosphere so all students feel safe and I can go on and on and on about how great they are. The teachers are much of the same, fantastic! The PTO is like no other; you'll want to get and be involved! This is where you want your children to go! GO MASON CREST TIGERS :)
Mason Crest is absolutely wonderful, not only in terms of strong academics, but also excellent teacher involvement, support and leadership of the outstanding Principal and Vice Principal, and amazing after school student and family events that celebrate learning and inspire a strong sense of community. Mason Crest is truly an awesome school.
This is a new school and it's amazing. The Principal is phenomenal, warm, kind hearted, energetic and talented. The teacher staff are mostly young, energetic and devoted. I'm so grateful that my kids studying here.
