Zanesville High School is a good school. I have been a student here for almost 4 years and most of the bad days I have had, have not a thing to do with the school itself. The staff and student body is full of good people. I like ZHS because of the help the staff is willing to give. There has never been a moment where I have asked a teacher for help, and they have said ¨No.¨ The guidance office is also extremely helpful. Any questions that I have had about college or anything like that, they've answered to the best of their ability. The staff actually cares about us. That is very important. In ZHS I would like to see a few things improve. The amount of trash talk we ZHS students get, is unbelievable. I want to change the societal outlook on our school. I wake up and come to this school every single day, for 6 hours, and I can assure you it is not as ¨trash¨ as everyone says and or thinks. Overall, ZHS is a good school. I have had a great 3 and a half, almost 4 years here.

I love how involved Zanesville High School is, with each other and with their students. We have many different options when it comes to extra curricular activities including clubs, sports, classes, and activities. This school is in no way discriminative, and makes sure its students receive the best education and care. I am beyond proud to be part of such an environment.
Zanesville High School is a very divers fun loving school. They believe in "No Child Left Behind"; they will work day and night to make sure every child is safe and doing great in school. For children that need the extra help, the staff will provide different options for that child and help find out which one works best! The staff is the best part of the whole school! The campus is to die for.
