I am a 2019 graduate from Zachary High School and my experience consisted of an amazingly involved student body with teachers that sponsored many clubs and on-campus events. Both of which contributed to an unforgettable high school experience. In a classroom setting, my teachers were more than willing to answer any sort of questions about the subject of the day or advice that would help us outside of school. The administrators not only cared about our success at Zachary High School, but also our success beyond high school.
The school has dedicated staff and good college preparation, also the school has out of school activities which can keep you engaged with education and also out of school activities. College prep is a main goal for this school in regards of academics and education. Teachers care for their students and make sure that they can understand the concept of what they are learning day to day. If a teacher believes that a what is being taught is difficult they will make sure there students understand what is going on in order for the students success in that subject.
