    This is our first year at ZWEST and I couldn't be more disappointed! Our teacher doesn't bother to return e-mail! I have tried to go up the chain of command and havn't found the accountability that is expected in Zionsville.

    We moved to the area in January 2008. My son entered 5th grade @ ZWest and we couldnt have been more pleased with the school teachers and curriculum. We had heard Zionsville Schools were a 4 star rating now we can personally confirm that! Looking forward to another great year in 08-09.
