Mount Zion District and Curriculum
The districts for Mount Zion students maintains a rigorous curriculum with competitive classes so that students will have many opportunities for success and will also graduate with the skills and learning they need to be competitive, engaged citizens who are ready to succeed in our increasingly global economy. Engaged, self-guided learners are more likely to achieve success, not only in high school, but after graduation. To help achieve that, a wide variety of extracurricular activities are available for the students. Students who directly enter the workforce, or those who pursue post-secondary education should be equally ready for this.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mount Zion District Curriculum
Students learn critical thinking skills in humanities classes such as literary analysis and interpretation. They learn how to read complex texts and evaluate them for content, structure, and approach. They learn how to recognize an author’s bias and intent in non-fiction works as well. They develop opinions which they support with evidence and facts from their reading and from outside sources. They learn to write well-reasoned, analytical essays as well as communicate effectively in a variety of ways.
Science literacy is also stressed so that students learn to evaluate their opinions and observations of the world. Mathematics classes focus on a deeper understanding of how the math works and includes extended units in functions and modeling. Students cover fewer topics but study those topics at a deeper level so that students have a strong foundation of mathematical learning to work with. The hope is that students will take responsibility for and self-direct their own learning.

Chalk Talk: Why Is the GPA Important?
The GPA is a student’s earned grade point average in high school classes. Colleges use the GPA and the course list to determine how ready a student is for college. The course list is especially important because it tells which classes the student took and gives insight into how rigorous the student’s course selection was. A student who took very challenging courses but made a slightly lower GPA might well be a stronger student than one who took fairly easy classes but aced them, for example. The GPA isn’t a foolproof indicator of how prepared a student is for college, though. College and high school classes are different, and many students take college more seriously. But a GPA is a good start.
