Student growth and achievement are the foremost priorities of Zionsville Community Schools. ZCS follows the Indiana Department of Education curricular standards while incorporating a variety of educational philosophies and best instructional practices. The curriculum is designed to provide a well-rounded educational program addressing core skills and knowledge in all key academic areas, while allowing opportunities for enrichment, diversification, and remediation based upon individual needs. 
Each of the Zionsville schools provides a well structured, balanced, and challenging course of study for all students. Implicit in this goal is the belief that every student is capable of achieving a standard of excellence that provides the foundation for future academic, economic, and social success.
