Parent involvement is encouraged and welcomed at J. Mason Tomlin. The J. Mason Tomlin PTO is an organization that prides itself on parents and teachers working together to help meet the needs of our children. Some additional active roles parents play include helping out in the classroom or library as an aide, volunteering as a room parent, or chaperoning a class trip.

Academically we have a strong and challenging curriculum. A review of specific curricula and textbooks is completed every five years. Standardized tests are used to identify student growth, strengths, and weaknesses. Many incentive programs are in place to recognize student growth and achievement. Supplemental programs such as art, music, library, and physical education are implemented as a part of the daily schedule to help balance the vigorous academic demands. Speech, basic skills, Spanish, computer education, extensive special education services,  guidance counselor services, and career education are examples of programs that enhance and assist students in attaining the academic and social expectations set forth by the Mantua Township Board of Education.

Please feel free to call the school for additional information or a tour of the facility.
