Our PreK program is housed at Zachary Early Learning Center. Students then progress to Northwestern Elementary School. This school serves students in kindergarten and first grade. Students then move on to Zachary Elementary for second and third grade. They then move to Copper Mill Elementary for fourth and fifth grade. Middle school students attend Northwestern Middle for grades six through eight. Zachary High School, the district's only high school houses, students grades nine through twelve.
