    A great school system with a sense of greatness who assumes that their success is the same as the entire community. The fees are horrendous as they think all families with children going to these areas can afford any payment. A prom dance should not be 65$ when years ago you could have gone years ago for significantly less. a student doesn't need 50$ worth of supplies for things the teacher needs and the student may not use. This is not a school, just like college, it's a business. It facilitates making money of every lower-middle class child who the school assumes can pay it and then get threatened when it can't be afforded. Walking across a stage shouldn't cost 50$ for a cap and gown either. Every student these ill-developed administrators see are just dollar signs. Once again, students should get their education from a school, not the business of Zachary High
