Greetings Stevens T. Mason Academy Staff, Parents and Community, 

Welcome back to a new school year! 

We are incredibly excited to begin another school year here at Mason.  My name is Tara Turrentine, the new Assistant Principal. I served as an Assistant Principal at Dixon Educational Learning Academy for three years. My experiences also include: teaching, literacy coach, Title I Facilitator, and Curriculum Dean. 

 This year promises to be a year filled with great opportunities for all our students.  We will strive together to find ways that we can become better than then we have before! 

We embark upon a journey with a pledge to you, “This will be a year of engagement, meaning, and rigor in our classrooms combined with Project Based Learning, and extracurricular clubs and activities.” 

During the 2018-19, we will continue to build strong relationships with parents and students, to build the proven foundation of good work and continue excellence in education. 

Our vision here at Mason is that “We believe every child can learn”  

Our Highly Qualified Professional Educators and Support Staff are fully committed to provide our students with many opportunities.  

We look forward to a very positive and productive school year together!
