    My daughter is an eighth grader this year and has been at this school since fifth grade. She has a good group of friends and overall has had an excellent education here. All of the students use personal laptops in the school (you can rent one or use your own). I gave teacher quality only four stars because some teachers are better than others but you will find that at just about any school. The highlight of this school is the music program!

    Zionsville Middle School is an outstanding school with committed and well-qualified teachers. There is a low student to teacher ration. Parents are highly involved. The student population excells academically with 95% of the total student population passing the ISTEP test. The school provides a safe learning environment. It is 4 star and blue ribbon school. It has wonderful facilities. We have been exceptionally pleased with the staff programs and educational opportunities ZMS offers!

    My 8th grader had an awful time with this school. The teachers and staff were very rigid even if you have resource time. Zionsville Middle School is cheap too---it only hires young teachers and so there are very few experienced teachers. Zionsville is growing so quickly most of my kid's classes had teachers with less than 3 years experience except for band. The number of kids in each class are maxxed out too. The Parent Connect online assignment stuff seemed helpful but teachers never put assignments on before they were due.

    I'm in 8th grade at the midle school and i have a learning disablility and have ADHD. while this school is ranked number 1 in the state of indiana it works very hard to help its students and only recrutes the best teachers and staffs. this school is a great place to send a child. it is better then almost 70% of privet schools in indiana they are great at teaching and they have a bunch of programs from all there students from spanish french and german club to back packing club to the softbal football and track teams. they help their students succeed. i can't picture myself going to school anywhere else.

    My child has ADD/Hyper Activity Disorder. He has difficulty in making friends and joining in. I feel that the school spends more time on the children that well keep thier ratings high rather than making sure that all children are a success.
