    "I am a student at Mt.Zion high school and it is in fact a horrible school . Not all but very many of the teachers do not care about there students they don't care if you don't understand or anything else . They're basically there just to sit there and do power points all day . Mt.Zion is completely overrated . The principals aren't bad actually they are great It's just the teachers that are horrible . Going into Mt.Zion I was excited they made it seem to me like it was a great school but in actuality once you get there and see what it's really like you'll want to leave within weeks . I did everything in my power not to attend Mt.Zion again."

    "I think this school and this school system has made great improvements, there have been some issues in the past years, but the administrators have really tried to make all the necessary changes to improve the quality in Clayton county for our kids. I had two daughters graduate from Mount Zion High and they both agree, there were good points and bad points. Overall, they both were top ten percent graduates, one year apart and they both went on to go to college. This school was not bad to me. I also think they have an excellent magnet program. We were satisfied overall with this school."

    "As an eleven year employee of Mount Zion High School and in reading these comments over the past few years - I believe there is a little truth in every comment and quite a few exaggerations. Mount Zion got a bad reputation more from the media than the truth. Moving forward - Mount Zion has made leaps and bounds, and if you dig a little deeper, will find that Mount Zion since 2003 has consistently grown upward. All high schools have problems and issues; however, if you ask those with negative comments how involved they were in school activities or volunteering or making regular visits, you may find that they were not an active part of the school community. It takes a village - and our village within the building has pulled together and made a stand. We are constantly having to weed out many non-residents because given a choice, parents would rather their child went to Mount Zion than their zoned school. I've heard this firsthand. We've had a strong principal for over 4 years. Now, we are under new leadership (again); however, 2011-2012 is looking promising. The strength of a school is based on the commitment from the community. Ask yourself, how can you help?"

    "What a joy it is to teach at Mt. Zion High School! I'm a veteran Educator, but new to Clayton County Schools and am delighted to discover that the school system is so much better than the media would have you believe with the negative press. My administrators are extremely supportive and most professional. Love my classes: my students are cooperative, polite, and engaged! Dr. Heatley has hit the ground running, quickly establishing a precedence of leadership and commitment to raising the proverbial bar for excellence. No, I am not a paid promoter - just a happy teacher with a positive perspective!"
