Map of W J Zahnow Elementary School address.

Zahnow has been wonderful overall. We have not met or heard from other parents about a single Kindergarten teacher who wasn't adored both by students and parents alike. We expect the same going into first grade. Administration is professional and helpful and the nurse is a rockstar. Coming from out of state, we used Great Schools as a compass for where to relocate and we couldn't be happier.

I have two children at this school. It is very small and cramped. The teachers are horrible to the children. I have had many sleepless nights over sending my kids here. My child just informed me that she was vomited on today and I was never notified. Not even a courtesy note. If you are on the fence about sending your child to this school, heed my warning.

I have six children , 2 are graduated from Zahnow, 4 are currently attending Zahnow. I cannot tell you how many times I have recommended the school to others. I have never had problems that were not easily resolved, the Principal, teachers & staff are wonderful! Highly recommended!
