Zion Heights Junior High School serves roughly 400 students in grades seven, eight and nine and has several unique characteristics. In geography courses, students start learning the basics of geographic information systems (GIS) technology in grade seven. During their junior high school experience, they apply these skills to topics in a broad variety of subject areas. In addition to developing students’ technical abilities, this cross-disciplinary approach helps them identify spatial patterns that bring meaning to real-world issues at the local, national and global levels.
