About MCS

Big Opportunities

Mason City Schools are BIG... and that means BIG opportunities for kids. Whether it's our award-winning STEAM labs in grades K-8, therapy dogs at each school, 27 AP courses, language offerings like American Sign Language, Mandarin and Coding, orchestra, band and theater beginning in 6th grade, or our state champion Ultimate Frisbee team, there's literally a class or club for every Comet - ensuring that each child is known and nurtured during their MCS journey. 
More than 10,000 Mason City Schools students are served by 650 faculty and 600 staff members in 5 schools.

Mason Quality

Close-knit, forward-thinking, and situated in a great location between Cincinnati and Dayton, we're recognized as a family-friendly, carefully planned, culturally diverse Ohio community that attracts residents and businesses.

Mason High School Marching Band has been recognized as one of the premiere marching band programs in the country - consistently ranked as a Bands of America Grand Nationals finalist.
