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.
I like the wide range of classes and extracurriculars. I like that no matter what you like to do as a hobby, there is most likely a extracurricular club or class for that. I also like how great the fine arts program is. It is well funded, organized, and very fun to be a part of. One thing I would change is to get rid of the clear backpack policy. I feel like it is pointless and everyone would do better without it.
