Monthly Update from Dr Keltner

Parents and students:


As we end this school year, we’ve been honored with a number of exciting events and achievements.  Most importantly, in the midst of some uniquely challenging times, we’ve made a school year happen for our students and we’ve done it well!  On top of all the great accomplishments we’ve witnessed, this past week US News & World Report released its annual Best High Schools in America rankings and once again the Bulldogs are in there!  FZS has been named in these rankings each of the past seven years.  You can see the complete listings at 


The definitive salute to our students’ success is witnessed at our commencement exercises, held at 4:30 on Saturday afternoon, May 29, at The Family Arena in St. Charles.  Commencement marks a milestone in FZS history and is a great celebration of our graduates’ accomplishments during their four years with us.  I’m excited that we will once again graduate a class of seniors who are ready to step beyond high school.  It’s a fantastic time as we recognize our students for reaching the final milestone in their secondary educational experience.


I appreciate the outstanding work done by each of you during this school year – your diligence and effort as parents and students have played major roles in the success that is an everyday occurrence at Fort Zumwalt South, evidenced this year in ways that are stronger than ever.  Best wishes for an exciting finish to this school year, a relaxing summer, and a renewed strength next fall as we continue to build upon our tradition of excellence at FZS.
