What People Are Saying About Jerry Zucker Middle School
"I am so happy that I sent my child to your school. I have never met teachers that care so much about their students. Zucker classes can be tough and it makes my boy better every day. I sent you a boy and soon you'll be sending him to high school ready to be a successful man. Thank you." ZMS Parent 1-7-2013
"Mr. Hilden is awesome. How do I explain it....he gives us hard work. Adult
work. But still treats us like we're kids. So we can make mistakes and not feel
bad and try again...and in the end we've done "real" work...adult work." 8th grade Honors student in Mr. Hilden's ELA class
"My son goes to Zucker and I think it is such a great school. I am proud of the way he is learning and the care of teachers and staff. I want to thank every one." ZMS Parent 12-16-2011
