I love that this school has so much to offer students academically and socially. I have children with varying interests, and they are all able to find many activities to be involved in. I also love how well the teachers are willing to work with parents and students to achieve the students goals.
The best part about this school is its committment to building relationships with every kid. There are programs for all kinds - and the staff seem like they are always willing to work with the kids. Check out the graduation rate - above 95% for several years in a row. They are doing good things for kids!
This school offers a multitude of activities for all students--from athletics, to hands on robotics, engineering and wood/metalworking activites, to FBLA, ASB, drama, music, and others! It offers many different courses and college credit can be earned in high school upper division science, social studies, music, math and English courses. The current principal is highly supportive, as is district administration. For a smaller school, Zillah High School has a reputation of offering a lot to its students in a quality manner. It is also the home of the National Teacher of the Year for 2013!
This school is by far one of the best in the area. While they cannot offer a giant variety of programs, they are dedicated to the quality of what they do offer. The teachers are excellent and really do care about the students. The average class size is right around 26, though many I have taken are much smaller. Most of the students who go here have gone to school with each other for most of their lives and those who haven't have no trouble making friends. Mrs. Anderson and Mr. Charbonneau (Math & Science respectively) are exceptional teachers who make this school a great place to be.
This school is one of the best schools my child has been in. Their programs are great and the teachers are really focused about their students. I really recomend this school as one of your options if you are considering it.
i believe this school is over all a good school with the exception of the new principal. he is unfair and discriminating. i believe the school would function better and the students would improve with a new principal. ever since he has come to the school it ran down all the work that mr. mckay built up.
