The largest high school in Ohio and located in a suburb of Cincinnati, William Mason High School creates big opportunities for each of our 3,500 students to lead their learning, find their niche, and hone their passions. MHS students are securing patents, starting businesses, serving others, and speaking out.

Students Leading Their Learning
Students engage in a strong college-preparatory curriculum that includes 24 Advanced Placement courses, a student-run school bank, a student-run school store, student-run media outlets, and internships. Students learn outside the classroom in over 70 clubs, 27 athletic teams, three yearly theatrical productions, and a plethora of art and music offerings.

Students Creating a Safe & Inviting School Culture
The Say Something Campaign was fueled by our students and is now part of our school's DNA. Students take seriously their responsibility to keep our school safe by reporting anything that could cause harm to a student or staff member, and have shared information that resulted in avoiding tragedy and saving lives.

Students Changing the World
Whether through a school-wide lip dub video that helped raise over $65,000 for cancer research, the male student athletes who mentor male students with special needs, the nationally qualifying speech and debate team who worked without an adult coach, or the Mason African American Students for Change leaders who organize our month-long Black History Lecture series, student leadership is on display in every facet of MHS. Our students tackle issues large and small that make our school, our community, and our world better.
