Zachary High is a great school. It is apart of the Zachary Community School District which has been Louisiana's number one public school district for thirteen years. The administration and faculty work hard to ensure that their students have all the resources needed to be prepared for college or the work force. For more advanced students, Zachary offers higher level courses such as Dual Enrollment and AP. The sports and arts programs continue to excel, and the various clubs support the community throughout the year. The people of Zachary take pride in the school, and it shows throughout campus and at public events. I am a senior at Zachary. I moved here my Junior year. I was very nervous because I didn't know what to expect. However, I have been welcomed with open arms in all of my sports and clubs, and my teachers work with me to ensure that my gaps in education from my previous school are filled and that I am able to learn the information. I am grateful to be a Bronco.
Zachary high used to be just a school I go to, but this year I’ve noticed it’s been more than that. They’ve given us, the students, countless opportunities to become successful & prepare for reality after high school. For instance, I am taking classes at the community college during my senior year right now & Zachary High is paying for it all, including the book fees, & I am not the only student taking advantage of this amazing opportunity to be ahead. All the faculty & administrators will do as much as they possibly can to help you with your academic & overall needs beyond what their job description includes. Zachary High invests in providing as many programs, duel enrollment classes, after school help, & sports. I believe I’m extremely lucky to attend Zachary High and have amazing teachers to prepare me. Being the first go to college & graduate in my family can be frightening for me, and I probably would not be ready to go to college if I didn’t attend Zachary High.
