English Learners (ESL)
Destination District for International Families
Mason City Schools proudly welcome families from all over the world. One third of our students are from multilingual homes representing over 70 different countries and languages. Our learning community appreciates the rich cultural and linguistic diversity that international families bring to our schools. Mason City Schools staff strives to develop a culture and environment that embraces the wide range of student strengths, identities and needs. We are proud of and grateful for the strong partnerships with all of our families. Approximately 1,000 of our students with linguistically diverse backgrounds meet the criteria to be identified and served as English Learners every year.
