Zumbrota-Mazeppa Senior High School Reviews

Zumbrota-Mazeppa Senior High offers an astoundingly diverse range of subjects for its size. My graduating class is less than 90 students yet extracurricular include track, football, softball, wrestling, FFA, NHS, Students Against Destructive Decisions, competitive theater, choral, and band groups. Classes are in diverse fields, especially in language arts, and I have been encouraged to augment my education through online credits that are added to my transcript. Counselors are responsive to requests for aid, and have assisted me in large quantities of short notice scholarship paperwork quickly and efficiently on multiple occasions.

Pros:
•ZMHS does a good job of accommodating to students as individuals.
•The academic success in the ZM District is above average and has been ranked a Silver School by USA Today.
•There is never a shortage of staff that are willing to help the students. We have
counselours, paraprofessionals and Special Ed. teachers who commit to helping each student.

Cons:
•The School district in general is growing rapidly. The administration tries its best to keep up with the sudden increase in student body, but there is an obvious stuggle. And even with the growth in the school’s population, their is very little diversity in race, religion or background.
•Teachers in the ZMHS math department do not commit to their work as teachers and students often struggle in these classes.

In all, if you value academics, sports, availability to technology in school, ZMHS will be a great choice.
I like how close everyone is at school. Because we are in a small town, we know everyone and can carry a friendly conversation with anyone we bump into. I'd like to see more programs be encouraged within the district, like FCCLA, Speech, PSEO, choir, band, sports, etc.
