I can say the administration at this school is not the best. It’s not a lot of student participation with certain things that involve the actual students. Like the students have no say, in the school at all. And the fact the Mount Zion has such a bad record, no teachers want to teach there, it’s like our education not being taught thoroughly cause the teachers not even passionate about teaching. The environment that this school is horrible, the school hasn’t been rebuilt in years. So the ceilings look horrible, walls look nasty, gym is falling a part. I would like to see a change in the staff and just the environment itself, because Mount Zion has the potential to be something great if people put the time and effort into making it that.

Mount Zion High School is great! The counselors are always willing to help, the teachers are always able to tutor you if you need help, and the atmosphere is a positive one. Of course Mount Zion High isn’t just all around amazing, so things that could really improve the school would be: clean the bathrooms more often, serve healthier options at lunch, and offer students free parking. If these changes can be made it would really put Mount Zion High Scool on the map!
The honors and AP teachers are great! They really care about the students'success. However, there was only so much that can be done with the limited resources given at this high school.
