The teachers are outstanding at this school. I have 3 children that attend and I couldn't imagine them being anywhere else. The environment is caring and supportive. With it being a small school everyone (teachers, aids, office staff, and students) are always looking out for each other and promoting Christian values. Teachers lead by their wonderful example and students are taught love and respect for each other. Teachers incorporate many different styles of teaching which keep all my kids involved and excited about school. They love going to school every day! Students also score high in overall test scores. This school is accredited, as well. I like that I feel my child is safe in the environment. Highly recommend if considering. We couldn't be happier.

Completely agree with parent who reviewed in Feb. The faculty strives for constant self-improvement, and encourages my kids to strive for their full potential as well. Music is a big part of the experience at Zion, and physical fitness is incorporated in daily life beginning in kindergarten. All these things are great, but mainly we love Zion because the focus of every day is the love of Christ. If I can't be with my kids all day to teach them and share God's love with them, I can't think of another group of people who I''d rather have them learn from than the Zion faculty.
