A Message from your Principal

Dear Team Zachry Families,


Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year to our Zachry MS Comprehensive and our Zachry Magnet School Families!


If you have driven by the school lately you are seeing the great beginnings of our new building as the old main entrance, admin offices and many classrooms are removed to make way for our new Magnet School Classrooms, Administrative offices and Security Entrance. The target for construction on this first phase of the Zachry Master Plan is August 2022! You are also seeing the arrival of 12 new classrooms in the 6 portable buildings that have arrived and are being set up. We will also be having our footbal field and stands moved and updated and this construction should be starting any day! Lots of excitement!


Please use our new Zachry Community Calendar click here to follow the happenings at Zachry MS/Zachry Magnet School this year! Here are a few of the upcoming events:


Monday, August 2nd we will have students returning to campus for our Band, Orchestra, Choir and Theater Fine Arts Camps. Also our Strength and Conditioning camp will be starting up again. Students will need to be dropped off at the E hallway/Athletic entrance off of Cliff Brier for all camps. Directors and our coaches should be sending you and your student more information.
