Mount Zion Community Unit School District No. 3 Reviews

Throughout the 13 years I have been in the Mt. Zion School District I have not had many things to complain about. The teachers and staff here at Mt. Zion are the best. They are always there to help you when you have a question and they are always understanding. While I have been in Mt. Zion I have created friendships that I hope will last a lifetime! Some of the things I would change about Mt. Zion High School is that I would allow students to have a longer lunch period. I always feel rushed when I am trying to eat my lunch. Overall though, I would not ask to change very many things about the Mount Zion Community School District.

I like the academic excellence that Mt. Zion demands. It is one of the most academically competitive schools in central Illinois. There is no doubt that the students at Mt. Zion will be ready for college. The wide arrange of classes insure that every student will be able to pursue the path that they want. And if a student doesn't know what they want to pursue, Mt. Zion provides above adequate classes for every general area of academics. Above all else, Mt. Zion’s teachers do an outstanding job of preparing students for life beyond high school. The school also sets a new standard for school safety.
Mount Zion High School is a great school to go to around the area. The teachers and staff are very respectful and the facilities at the school are nice. I have had a great experience with the Mount Zion School District. The staff really care about each student's education. I like that everyone cares to see each individual succeed in everything they do such as school work, sports, etc. I would change the issues that go on in the school. Some people think that the more money you have, the more superior you are. I would make sure that no one is "below" people because of money. Overall, Mount Zion School District has a very respectful staff and cares for each student's education.
