  • Things have changed so much over the years at Zanesville High School. So many kids are not learning, they are being passed without having absorbed any information. I have yet to come across a teacher in this school that isn't in denial about how poorly the students are doing. When a teacher's class average is a C- or a D- then something is not working. There is entirely too much talking, and acting out in class- not enough discipline. VERY POOR communication with parents. The district very rarely puts grades or assignments on the web page- most teachers never even submit them. I am envious of other districts that have ALL their kid's grades and assignments posted. The attitude of teachers at this school is that if they want to learn they will, and if they don't then that's their loss. These are KIDS! If the majority of the kids don't care about learning then the majority of kids will continue to not care about learning. Kids look to their peers for examples and advice so often. It is the school's (and the parent's if we could get some communication from the school) job to let the kids know what is expected of them and to follow through with making sure the kids learn. Stop teaching only the "easy" kids who happen to be blessed with the maturity to get past the group and actually have the desire to learn. It is the school's job to teach ALL the kids!!! The future of the Zanesville community depends on it!

  • I have fond memories of my educational experiences at ZHS '68

    I feel that the teachers and college prep. courses did their job in getting me ready for my years at Ohio U.

    I am 57 years old and I could write in detail, my happy memories of ZHS.

    I've made it a point to drive by ZHS many times when I've come to town to visit. I am proud of ZHS. I just love to look at the building to be sure it is still standing. It is important.
