To be perfectly honest, the education here is top quality. The English and History departments are flawless, Math has strong teachers, and the Science is fine. Even though the education is great, most sports are on par with the level of excellence. The people are your typical small-town Midwesterners but are for the most part a jolly bunch. The school spirit and opportunities are abundant and most of the teachers seem to genuinely care for the students.

I think that Mt. Zion is a great high school, with amazing teachers and students. Mt. Zion has taught me a lot and is preparing me for many wonderful out-of-school opportunities.
