We love the school. Great experience and smaller class sizes allow for extra attention for each student. Faith based education and a strong character building program.

We have been connected to Zion for many years. Our oldest goes to school and our youngest is at Zion`s childcare. We love the family feel environment where all of the teachers know you and your kids. The smaller class sizes enable more attention for each child, but what I love most is hearing my child recite memory verses or tell me all about Jesus. We love Zion and would recommend this school!
