    I have two children that attended Zion from preschool through 8th grade. The teachers are terrific and very supportive. I always felt welcome on campus and enjoyed helping out in my child's classroom. The sports program is terrific especially for a small school. My oldest child is now in college earning a degree in civil engineering. Zion did a great job of preparing my kids for high school and college.

    After moving to California in the summer of 2011 I enrolled my children at Zion. The large class sizes at the public schools were not acceptable to me. I wanted to find a school that would help my children thrive. I have a preschooler and a first grader. I could not be happier with our decision to send our children to Zion. My kids love going to school there! I love the small class sizes and personal attention they receive. It is truly like a family. The teachers staff and parents are dedicated to providing an outstanding education to the students.

    This school focuses on reaching the whole child--heart soul body and mind. The faculty is dedicated and caring. The school climate is warm and nurturing. The campus is beautiful. We are so glad we enrolled our children at Zion this year! They love it and so do we!

    What a great school. We have been at Zion as a family for over 10 years and have seen many changes through the years. All for the better. I credit Zion with giving our children a very strong foundation to build upon. The moral values that are taught along side the strong academics have been instrumental in shaping our childrens attitude in life. Our oldest child has since graduated and is on to a public high school with great success. I can't help but attribute the good study habits acquired to the personal attention received throughout all the grades but particularly through middle school when a little push was needed. The middle school science teacher and program is superb. Our second child continues on at Zion and we have seen a great deal of both personal and academic growth fostered here. The new principal has really cultivated a strong sense of community amongst the staff and families. I have never seen a group of more dedicated teachers who REALLY care about your children. The small class sizes have really allowed for personal attention when needed. I can't say enough about Zion. It is a great place to be. I will be sorry when our youngest child graduates.

    After moving to Fallbrook in 2001 my husband & I enrolled our children at Zion. Our children have flourished over the years under the care of Zion teachers and staff. We are in awe of their dedication to each and every child. Our son is now attending a public high school and earning a 4.0 GPA and our daughter continues to excel in middle school. We are so grateful for the strong foundation they have built while at Zion.

    I sent my son to this school and felt very disappointed the teachers were very racial i pay up all fees needed and donations that they were asking but bec. were mexicans and all the kids and teachers were white we felt like we were not treated right. Teachers doesn't pay attention to our needs my kids feels the same right now i am happier that i transferred my son to a different school who treated my son equally. If you are asian or hispanic think again before enrolling your kids on these school there are much better schools than this place

    I have had both of my sons at Zion since Preschool after moving to the area from Los Angeles. It has a safe and positive environment with teachers that care a great deal about their students. I have a California teaching credential and want to ensure any parent that Zion not only covers the standards but reaches above and beyond. I keep an eye on the standards and have never seen any dumbing down at Zion. There was an issue a couple of years ago with the writing curriculum not being up to par but the administration remedied this asap. Don't forget parents it is your responsibility to ensure that your child is getting the proper support educationally and that means working with your children at home not just expecting teachers to do it all. This is in response to the first reviewer...simply incorrect information!

    Following up on August 23 2007 Post. Since school has changed Principles and Have new teachers things have got much better. Don't get me wrong the school staff are very loving and provide the best education they can. The school is just not setup for children with learning disabilities. I also feel the curriculum is a little behind the public school system.

    I have three children that have been at Zion. Two of witch are still there. My oldest is now in High School with all honors classes 4.0 Top of the class. My two younger children are thriving as well at Zion. After being at Zion our standards have been very demanding of the High School. Every school is a good school. It is what you and child put in and what you take out. Zion is definitley the best stepping stone to a great education and Christian morals. There was one review that was not so good but if you read it closely the courts picked Zion as well. Great job teachers an staff keep up the good work.

    My child attended pre-K and is currently in 1st grade. We came back because of safety concerns in K at Bonsall Public School. We are very happy and see a huge difference in the moral of the teachers and staff which makes for a very positive learning experience. We are pleased with the academics spirituality and moral teachings. The Principal is wonderful and very hands on. The children are highly supervised which increases safety and minimizes bullying.

    Our two children have been at Zion for the past 6 years. This is by far the best school in Fallbrook. The staff exhibits the highest standards of christian values and educational excellence and their love of the Lord is obvious on a daily basis. Our kids have just thrived at this school year in and year out. Each teacher has taken the time to know and love them as individuals and have become like family members to us.

    My child has also been at Zion since preschool. I didn't want my child to go to the public schools in the area because of them not being very good. The school was great for a few years until I learned that she had a learning disability. A educational plan was setup and the school said they could meet her needs. It has been a constant fight to make this happen with very little success. I know what your thinking just put her in a different school. I can't I am court order to leave her there because her mom lives in fallbrook and I live in temecula. My son goes to school in temecula and I couldn't be happier. He also has a learning disability and I couldn't be happier with the school district. Their LD is not sever. Word to the Wise pick a different school.

    My son has been at Zion since preschool and I have been very happy with his education. The teachers foster a Christian atmosphere teaching the students about making good choices. There is a dynamite math and science teacher in the middle school. My son enjoyed the youth group trips student council and the basketball team. The administration really works hard to make Zion a fine school.

    The best private school in our community! A great focus on the individual student. Class size is low (ours is 15)(2 of the same grade level). Great focus on good christian values (but not over board).
