Zito is currently an underachieving school. Zito does not begin teaching their students to read until the 1st grade. The teachers currently are not allowed to teach the students to read because of test scores. I absolutely loved my sons teachers last year though.

Although my daughters second grade teacher is fantastic, its sad that she is the minority. This school is absolutely horrible.

This is the worst school my kids have ever attended. The safety of our children is unfortunatley in the worst hands possible. Discipline would have to be compared to boot camp. I will never recommend this school to anyone I ever meet.
