    I would never trade anything for my time at ZB! There are so many opportunities, you just have to take them. The culture and diversity is like no other and very different, but provides a real world atmosphere. Everyone only looks at the "negative" but there are so many positives, you just have ti be willing to see them. This is an amazing institution with some of the most caring and genuine teachers and staff that you will make lifetime connections with. Every place, school, and culture has its own problems. Take it from somebody who has actually gone to school here, I have succeeded! I am going to college to play baseball and getting a large academic scholarship. ZB is different, but it is more than worth it if you are willing to let it grow and love on you. If you are closed minded you will only see that of which you think you know. Don't listen to people that don't have first hand experience, because they don't know anything. Everywhere has their own problems, Zion is a family.

    I like the advanced classes that they offer here! The classes can be a perfect fit for anyone. I also love all they help/tutoring they offer,they offer help almost 5 days a week in the morning,during lunch,during study hall, and after school! What i wish changed is more school dances or activities, not going to lie but it gets a bit boring around here!
    The Staff cares about preparing students to head to the next level with their life goals. Whenever a student needs extra help or attention, there are many resources available for guidance. For the athletes, the aspect of being a student is always first. Some students need a "look up to," and there are counselors, deans, teachers, and coaches available for coping. One specific counselor sends out numerous memos regarding colleges, scholarships, and available resources in preparation for the next level of a student's career. These past four years have been very helpful for a stepping stone for adulthood.
