Fort Zumwalt R-II School District Reviews
Fort Zumwalt School district gave a very safe, normal high school experience. There were many clubs, sports, and other activities that got you involved. The quality of the resources and facilities that were attainable by students were great, a lot better than other area schools. There were also many opportunities to take part in weighted or college credit courses. One thing that also stood out, was the school’a ability to make it a mental health conscious environment. If there could be something changed, food would be my first thought. Although there was an effort to be made for healthier food options, the quality was lacking. Also, the variety wasn’t very good either in the past year. Another thing I would change, is the importance placed on each athletic program. Not surprising, football would get a lot of attention so it would be nice for other sports (and activities) to get equal recognition.
For the past twelve years, I have been a student in the Fort Zumwalt school district. From kindergarten to now, my senior year. We moved to Missouri right before I started kindergarten and ,I must say, I am very lucky. From start to finish, the teachers, administration, and staff have done everything in their power to ensure a brighter future for their students. There are many programs in place to help ensure that. With English not being my first language, I had trouble in school. Because of this, I was place in ESL, English second language, which allowed me to receive the extra help I needed learning the new language. This helped me not fall behind my peers. After only a few years, I was where I needed to be and was able to graduate from this program.
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.
