This school shows to much favortism in academics as well as athletics.They give out stuff to peole that dont even work for it out of the pity of them... Some of the teachers are just judgmental and some of the coaches are just careless.

Mt. Zion High School is the BEST! I have been a teacher here for the past 19 years and couldn't imagine teaching anywhere else! The Faculty is great, the students are great, and I am truly blessed to be a part of all the wonderful progress, academic and athletic!

My sons grades were awful and failing when he entered Mt. Zion and within the first semester he had a complete change in work ethics and his grades have soared. By the end of the year he had achieved the presidential honors award certificate. The staff has been very comunicative and understanding. We are very pleased with Mt. Zion HS. and are confident that our son will graduate with pride this year.
