Purpose Statement

"Making Our Mark in the World: One Child at a Time"

Mission Statement

Masonic Heights' students acquire skills to become lifelong learners and meet the challenges of an ever-changing society.


  • All children can learn and enjoy success.
  • Children learn best when instruction is compatible with individual learning styles.
  • Students need real life skills.
  • Every child's success depends upon cooperation between school, home and student.
  • Students are responsible for their own actions.
  • Learning encompasses higher order thinking skills.

Our curriculum promotes skills necessary for students to excel both now and in the future. The curriculum contains performance-based objectives that are measurable and dynamically respond to the needs and abilities of our students. Research-based strategies are embedded in professional learning and are integrated and applied across the curriculum. Differentiated instruction is practiced in all classrooms and a comprehension MTSS (multi-tiered system of support) program is in place to support our students. A rich offering of special area classes is provided to all students daily. Enrichment classes and opportunities are provided for students who are meeting/exceeding standards.

New Interim Principal

It is with great pleasure that we announce that Mr. Dave Osterland has been approved by our Board of Education to be the new Masonic Heights' interim principal for the remainder of this school year. The search for a permanent principal will take place this spring. Over the next few weeks Mr. Osterland will begin to transition into this new role and we will select a teacher for his physical education classes. Dr. Lewis' last day as principal at Masonic Heights will be on December 21, and Mr. Osterland will start on January 7. Enjoy this video recording.

Walk to School Day

Masonic Heights students participate in the National Walk to School Day by walking through Tangletown to school. Walking is one of the best forms of exercise. It isn’t hard on our joints and feet like running and jogging but still gives us all the advantages.
