    "Most of Mason Prep's teachers are above and beyond what you could ever hope for in any school. The family-style, nurturing environment is unmatched in any school across the Lowcountry. Students are well prepared for high school with the exception of one subject - Science. Until the 7th and 8th grade Science program begins to improve, Mason Prep students will suffer as they attempt to excel in high school. Instead of testing on "critical thinking skills," the science teacher needs to test on science knowledge so that these children will be prepared for high school science. MPS students are not prepared for advanced high school science. Hopefully, administration will understand the importance of proper teaching and testing, and insist on improvements in this area. Otherwise, this school is unsurpassed in every other subject!"

    "Mason Prep School (MPS) offers an exceptional learning environment for boys and girls. The headmaster (Mr. Kreutner) is outstanding and the education is second to none. The school does an excellent job of promoting self confidence and teamwork within and across the grades. The environment sets a solid foundation in education and good citizenship so the students can continue to excel beyond MPS. We are confident that we made the best choice when choosing schools."

    "Mason Prep is one of a kind. We have an amazing principal and incredible teachers all of whom are committed to the individual success of the children. Rigorous academics in a nurturing environment equals WIN WIN for my daughters. We couldn't be happier with our choice of MPS."

    "I absolutely recommend Mason Prep both as an alumna and a parent of a first and third grader. Miss. Mason founded the school based on important fundamentals, such as: a democratic structure in which students elect a 'city council', an overall excellent standard of education, the importance of volunteerism, the power in working together and a well rounded curriculum . Students from day one are greeted by name. Teachers reward good deeds, behavior and skills via 'The Nice Knight', 'King of the Day' and special recognition during assembly. Older students are paired with younger students as 'pen pals'. Miss. Mason knew the importance and power of good manners and a hand-written note. Most of the staff have advanced degrees and have been with the school for many years. They go above and beyond to encourage and motivate each student. 7th and 8th graders learn how to volunteer. Parents are highly encouraged to participate and the PTO runs like a small business. If you like the feel of a small, nurturing, welcoming school that will fully prepare your child academically, emotionally and socially...Mason Prep delivers value and results."

    "As a parent of a Mason Prep graduate, I can't say enough about this school. The teachers are excellent, committed and dedicated. Many have been there for more than 10 years: this speaks volumes. It is a rigorous academic setting with attention to the most important fundamentals of education, good citizenship and leadership. Each grade-level teacher works diligently to prepare each child for the next grade to follow. As a result, the students are incredibly well prepared as they move upward and into high school and life outside of Mason Prep's walls. The new leadership is strong, forward thinking, approachable and on top of current trends in education, learning and policy. The education your child receives at Mason Prep is the best in town and most definitely the greatest value in a friendly competitive independent school environment. But perhaps one of the most endearing and important qualities Mason Prep offers is a strong and sincere feeling of "family." My child's friends from elementary school and their families remain our closest friends, many years after matriculating. We feel so fortunate that we chose Mason Prep and would do it all over again if we had the chance."
