Fort Zumwalt South High School (FZS) is in the Fort Zumwalt School District in Saint Peters, Missouri, United States.

In 1987, FZS was the second high school to be founded in the Fort Zumwalt District (after Fort Zumwalt North). Its students are mostly white middle class, although the small minority population in the area is growing. There are many extracurricular activities offered, including basketball, soccer, swimming, volleyball, football, marching band, choir, National Honors Society, and other sport, academic, and arts activities. FZS participates in the A+ program.[clarification needed]


The school started out in 1987 with a little over 400 students and dramatically increased to over 2,600 by 1998 making it one of the largest schools in the state. When West High was completed, the student population went down to around 2,100. Enrollment increased to 2,300 students before subsiding to around 1,400 with completion of East High.
