I'm a senior this year and based on my experience I MOSTLY look at this as a mediocre school. However, there are also both good and bad things about it PROS: Art classes are wonderful!! I had 2D art in 9th grade and it taught me a lot!! I had 3D art in 11th grade and take ceramics this year (both being in the same class room). 3D art & ceramics is by far the best class I've taken regardless of what some others think of it. I also like my 9th and 10th grade memories. Gym class in 9th grade left me with both bad and good moments, creating memories. Also in 10th grade I had memories but during the time I didn't even realize it!! It was mostly my biology and cooking class, one of the spirit week days and the bus ride after school leaving me nice 10th grade memories. I don't take JROTC here but heard it's great. CONS: I pretty sure other high schools are bigger and have a lot more. I also didn't participate in anything big (such as cheerleading and sports) that would leave better memories or make this school actually feel enjoyable. The students always talk when the teachers are trying to talk. Regardless of both the pros and cons, being at the school itself just feels average.

This school is absolutely amazing! I love it here! The teachers and staff are great! I especially love the chorus! I would recommend this school to everyone! I don't understand why it is rated so low, but it shouldn't be. The people who make it low just don't care. They make the school look worse than it is! I really like it here!

The only thing this school is worth attending is the JROTC program. Other than that I wouldn't recommend going there

What I love about ZHS is the JROTC program! Those teachers really care about the kids in this program. They keep them disciplined and make them work hard. I have had a few issues with teachers who dont want to show up for work everyday and it really causes problems with your childrens grades when they have a substitute every other day. Also some teachers like to just assign work and not teach it. Last time I checked that is why they are employed to TEACH! Or some teachers dont communicate with the parents at all via email after the parent reached out to them many many times. Parents that want to be involved are shut out by the teachers who dont want to communicate. All in all this school is ok and if it wasnt for ROTC im not sure my daughter would even want to go their.

The people who write these 1 star reviews make me laugh. It's like they had their own little social problems that had nothing to do with the school, and this was their only pathetic release. Since moving to Florida when I was in 5th grade, this is the only school I've actually loved. The programs here are amazing, with too many clubs to choose from (with club day every other Thursday, half an hour during school) The art and music classes are great, all with excellent, involved teachers. From all of the teachers I've met, none have been at all unfriendly or uncaring in the least.

Life is what you make of it. This is true about Zephyrhills High School. As with any school, it is not perfect. However, the tools are there if the students choose to use them. And, there is parent involvement...if the parents choose to be involved. I have been there during lockdowns - there is discipline. There are excellent choices and instructors for the Honors and Advanced Placement classes. Some teachers don't care, but most do and many are excellent. I also find the administration above average. I see that parents and students who have problems with the school, instructors, and administration already have their own issues and problems and do not want to take responsibility for themselves. It is a good school with staff proud to be called ZHS Bulldogs. I just wish the drop out rate was lower.

i think this school is worthless they teachers spend too much time worrying about who your talking to and what you are wearing then teaching you. Amajority of teachers won't even help you. If you ask for help they'll sit there and roll there eyes or start talking about something else and throw you off track. They don't know how to control thier classes so it's never quiet. Also the students just aren't that great.

I found that the school did have well educated staff. Though I did run into teachers that wouldn't do much in class but talk about their thoughts on life were, and how the government should be run. I found that there were many sports to choose from, and in fact have a great sports program. In my freshman year I couldn't stand the normal classes because of the discipline problems, kids had no real punishment. I understood though cause kicking them out wouldn't help our community, a school should help. When I went there , the principles tactics about dealing with misbehavior was poor in my opinoin. Seemed to be taken care of while I was leaving the school and is most likely being dealt with properly by now. My parents were never involved, I know few students parents were a lot, but for the most part I didn't see much.

I think that this school is terrible. Nobody is friendly and the teachers dont give you work and expect you to pass without helping you. I would much rather attend WCHS!

I believe Zephyrhills High School is a poor quality school. There doesn't seem to be any teacher involvement and the academic programs are lacky.

My son is currently a student at Zephyrhills High and is very happy. He has done the best of his entire school career. My only concern is that I wish the teachers would involve the parents more. I feel it would greatly improve the students chances for sucess.

This school had an amazing theatre, chorus, art, band, police explorers, football, weightlifting, swimming, diving, tennis, track and field, baseball, softball, soccer, and jrotc programs. The great teachers far outnumber the average ones. There are great classes for the above average students (honors and AP) and the below average students (remedial reading). I always felt safe at this school, I saw 2 fights in my 4 years attending. The teachers are helpful and most honors teachers treat the students as equals. There are many extra curriculars, a great library, and lots of new computers. The town of Zephyrhills is very nice and safe. It's mostly populated by newlyweds and senior citizens. We have a cinema 6, a bowling alley, a skate park, and the 2nd largest Super Wal*mart in the Florida.
