We have both of our children enrolled at Mason Prep and its one the best decisions we have made as parents. Both are academically challenged and guided in principle, but equally as important, they are genuinely loved and cared for. Its a warm and loving environment; perfect for our family.

Two of my three children attend Mason Prep (third one will soon), and I honestly could not be happier with our experience. The teachers and administration are so caring and engaged with not only the students but also with the parents. The teachers understand the needs/strengths/weaknesses of each child and work hard to maximize each child's potential in a non-stressful way that would otherwise make the kids lose confidence. At the same time, they let the kids make mistakes and do not shelter them from occasional let-downs and failures. In short, the school produces well-rounded and well-educated kids that are prepared for the next level. I can honestly recommend the school without hesitation. It feels like family. Randy
