Fort Zumwalt R-II School District Reviews

Like most schools, there are clicks of friends, bad teachers, and some amazing teachers. When I went to Zumwalt I had a variety of classes, some were weighted, AP and some were just average classes. A lot of my teachers expected you to teach a lot to yourself, which with my experience from college so far it isn't exactly like that. There weren't as many academic resources as there are in college. I would say if my teachers were more passionate about their lessons, it would make me more motivated to learn. The resources with mental health and stability are amazing, there are amazing counselors and some great teachers that I feel like I could go to for anything.

When I first came to the Fort Zumwalt School District, while touring Fort Zumwalt West High School, I was told that the kids there were the nicest in the county.

That was the biggest lie I’ve ever been told.

Fort Zumwalt West is a typical high school. It’s got nice facilities, quality textbooks, sports and clubs, and while it’s behind on technology, it’s definitely better than most schools in other areas.

The problem is it’s quite hard for me to really engage with a school that has such a problem with black students.

I’ve had many incidents, from cruel run-ins with students and baseless accusations from teachers that made me dread even walking down the halls. Everyday is a battle.

My fear has prevented me from truly having the high school experience. I only wish that my next academic experience will truly allow me to rise to my full potential.
The Fort Zumwalt R-11 district provides students with every opportunity to succeed and fully prepare for the future. The safe environment allows students to flourish and grow not only in their academics, but also in their character. The teachers, counselors, and principals go above and beyond to make everyone’s high school experience significant and memorable. This school district provides an easy transfer from high school to college with its numerous preparation opportunities. The multiple clubs and sports teams in this district allow students to truly find where they belong and thrive.
