William Mason High School switched from the trimester system in a semester system this year and each semester will contain two quarters, each consisting of roughly nine weeks. Quarters will affect sports eligibility. “The nine week interims will determine eligibility along with end of first semester grades and so on,” according to administrator Mr. Rompies. “Students will need to be passing five out of their seven classes to maintain their eligibility,” according to fellow administrator Mr. Distel.
National Merit Scholarships
Mason is one of the top achieving schools in the State. We have earned an A in all categories except Annual Measurable Objectives. Our student's work very hard and diligently thus making this school what it is today. "Rankings while often celebrated, don't tell the whole story. We're proud that our children are performing at some of the very highest levels in the state, but there is much more to a high quality education than what's measured on the state tests." said Dr. Gail Kist-Kline, Superintendent.
