    "Curriculum is set town wide, so same for all 13 schools. The student body is amazing- super super bright, diverse, interesting kids and families from all over the world. Income level high, but as a family solidly in the middle, we all feel warmly welcomed. Our house is smaller, car more beat up, and vacations less exotic, but no one cares in the least. The building is rundown like all public schools in US, and boys are expected to adhere too much to the "sit still and don't make fart jokes" mentality that plagues all elementary schools because all the teachers are women. Other comments are correct, principal focuses on social - and very bright kids will find some subjects not challenging enough. We've found workarounds with after school groups and projects, and my kids have so many peers who are equally academically talented that they benefit a lot from those friendships. These kids, like their folks, are the future nonprofit directors, CEOs, and MIT professors of tomorrow. Amazing non clique PTO with working and nonworking moms and dads very involved."

    "I guess this would be a great school if you are wealthy but for us low income people, not so good. This school consists or spoiled kids (what 5th grader needs an IPod touch, iphone, and ipad???) who's parents feel entitled just because they have money. Really pretentious parents who block the drive way with their BMW's while they chat each other up so no other cars can get by."

    "Mason Rice is an outstanding school, with a great sense of community, perfect teachers, and the best principal. We are so lucky to have our two children there! Cannot wait to have our youngest there, as well."
