    Mason over all has an excellent school system. Western Row is amazing my son loves it there. He moved into the school in the middle of school year and gelled very well within a few weeks. The teachers are very helpful & great.

    We recently moved here from a Southeastern state and the difference in the quality of schools is colossal. I didn't realize how backwards/underdeveloped it was till we moved here and my kids actually began enjoying being in school and learning. Warm knowledgeable teachers that actually like children lots of enrichment programmes enlightened counsleors that implement programmes that have a healthy positive focus...a mirror image of the school system we were in previous to Western Row. Highly recommend the Western Row and MECC.

    I am an ESL Aide at Western Row. It is a very open minded school. The teachers--my fellow staff love to teach and can help students achieve.

    It is the best school I could choose for my child--although large it feels like a family. Every one is smiling and saying hello. The children in the halls seem happy and the general attitude that you feel when you enter is positive!

    Teachers and administrators are great and my child is getting a great education. However the support of special needs kids is a little lacking. Especially when a child is active in fundraising for their disease or disability.
