Zeeland Public Schools Reviews
The Zeeland Public Schools system has left me starving for some diversity in a primarily affluent, caucasian, and religious community. Many of the administrative decisions and building projects were executed poorly, such as the construction of our path between buildings and the necessity of retrieving a pass from one office to bring it to the other office before one can attend class. In this time, an extra 20 minutes of class learning and participation is lost. The study body seems deeply enraptured in colloquial pleasantries such as social media, relationships, and being "popular." Any high school student is involved in these things, yes, it is simply that Zeeland has a lack of academic drive amongst its student body, emphasizing those traits. Teachers will gladly increase a student's score or final grade, which is unfortunate to those who have worked rigorously, and GPA's are grossly inflated.
I think the school does a good job at making kids feel welcomed in their classes. The students were very welcoming when I transferred into the school midschool year. I wish the teachers would give less homework, not saying that because I'm lazy but I'm doing an average of 3-4 hours of homework every night and it gets to be very exhausting. But overall the school is amazing!
The overall feel of the school is amazing. Everyone knows you and you know everyone. They offer a large selection of classes available to take, and allow AP courses for college credit. They work hard at bringing awareness to mental health and safety. They are a Be Nice school and work to decrease bullying and social stigmas. Most of the teachers are hard workers who are very passionate about what they do. One thing I would like to see changed is the relationships between teacher and student. Many times, the teachers have 600 students a year and have a difficult time connecting with everyone.
