Welcome to William Mason School

Welcome to the William Mason Elementary School! Our building is one of five elementary facilities that service Montville Township. We currently house a student population of just under 300 children, K-5, and approximately 60 faculty and support personnel.


Our educational belief embraces the notion that all children can learn and have that right. Here at Mason, we continue to work hard in creating and maintaining an educational environment that is both meaningful and exciting and that addresses the individual and collective needs of all of our students.


We are delighted that you have chosen to login to your school’s website. As you begin to navigate through the many options offered, you’ll be afforded access to an array of information, materials, and resources. From time to time, you may click on an area that is under construction. It is our way of updating and expanding the opportunity to better service you.  



William Mason School aims to provide its students with a learning environment that is safe, fosters learning and encourages respect of one another.  Parents will feel that their children are safe and they are seen as individuals who are provided with the opportunity to thrive in their social, emotional and academic pursuits.  Teachers will value the school community as well as their professional role within the learning environment.  The school community can be seen as an extension of their own family; priding themselves in being an integral part of the lives of children.

Days of Appreciation - Superintendent's Column May 26 Superintendent Dr. Thomas A. Gorman, Montville Township Public Schools

Days of Appreciation - One of the key foundations to America’s greatness is its public schools.  Allowing students access to a free and public education sets America apart from many other countries and gives all children the opportunity to succeed. The success of this education system is seen during the months of May and June.  The schools recognize student achievements of the past year, inductions into the honor societies are conducted with reverence, concerts showcase the results of many hours of practice, playoffs highlight the best teams on the athletic fields, and promotion and graduation ceremonies indicate the children completed the requirements asked of them and are ready to move on to the next level of life.

Sounds of Silence - Superintendent's Column April 2023 Dr. Thomas A. Gorman, Superintendent of Montville Township Public Schools.

Sounds of Silence - When driving down the road the other day, I saw a mother and daughter in a car approaching in the oncoming traffic lane.  I saw the teenage daughter smiling ear to ear as she was waving her hands and animatedly telling a story she was so excited to share.  The mother, who was driving the car, had a smirk on her face as she kept her eyes on the road and listened intently.  While I can only guess that there was music on in the car, I could see that neither was on their cell phone and they were conducting an age-old ritual called verbal communication. I could not hear what was being exchanged between the two of them, but I could tell it was one of those pleasant moments shared between a mother and a daughter...

District Enrollment Analysis Update - May 11, 2023 LOGO Montville Township Public Schools

Elementary Enrollment Reflects Community Growth - Montville Township Public Schools are highly desirable due to outstanding results including high test scores, a near-perfect high school graduation rate, 94% of students attending college, and consistently impressive ratings and rankings by various agencies. While much of this enrollment is attributed to increased birth rates, the recent demographic study also outlines additional growth from more people moving into town with families. Overall, growth will continue to challenge class sizes at the elementary level. At the May 9, 2023, Montville Township Board of Education Meeting, the Board viewed a Referendum Proposal Presentation, which was followed by a Financial Presentation. As mentioned in earlier letters this year, district enrollment currently exceeds capacity at the elementary school level. Elementary enrollment for fall 2023 is projected to exceed capacity by 149 students and will continue to grow.

Artificial Intelligence - Superintendent's Column March 2023 Superintendent Dr. Thomas A. Gorman

Artificial Intelligence - Superintendent's Column March 2023 - Once again, education finds itself on the edge of a new frontier with the announcement of ChatGPT artificial intelligence and similar type products just a few months ago. This new technology can compose music, detect cancer images, and write student essays. While still in its infancy, artificial intelligence will only improve in its accuracy and ability to assist mankind. It is not perfect but it is becoming unexpectedly human...
