Zionsville Community High School Reviews

ZCHS is a wonderful school for students of all interests and passions. The staff is friendly, knowledgable, and pushes students to do their best. Additionally, there are clubs, activities, and courses to suit anyone wanting to become involved in their school or community. The biggest issue I have with Zionsville Community High School is the toxic culture of pressure on students to do exceptionally well academically and get into the best colleges, because not all students thrive in that type of environment. However, I know that the faculty has the students' best interests at heart and simply want them to succeed.

The academics at Zionsville High School are INTENSE, but are also very preparing. With many college level courses offered at Zionsville many students from the school can graduate early or test out of college classes. One downside of the community is the lack of diversity. This is the only reason I am rating it a four star school. Because of the lack of diversity, it seems to me that a lot of the students are very sheltered and live in a bubble. Some determine that the bubble is good, while others determine that it is not beneficial (like me). Overall, the school is amazing if you are looking for advanced academics and a college readying public school.
Zionsville Community is truly a fitting name for my high school because it encompasses what it means to be a community. In my time at Zionsville, I have been surrounded by people who want to help me succeed. My teachers and coaches are dedicated to helping me reach my potential in the classroom and on the track. My classmates and teammates encourage me to push myself. They are always there to help me up if I fail and they celebrate with me in my successes. This community values education, athletics, and clubs, but more importantly, they strive to build character. I am involved in Kindness Rocks Club, which promotes kindness and inclusion. I am also encouraged to be a leader by example on my cross country and track teams. Organizations like National Honors Society promote volunteerism and supporting the less fortunate. This community teaches me to value character alongside achievement. I am truly blessed to call Zionsville my home.
