I'm a parent and I have to said that if your planning on enrolling your kid in this school think twice I have been block 3 times on this site, so much for free speech. Summit has been my son worst nightmare for the past 2 months he's been bulling and intimated Not by students but by the people that supposed to care for him at school, all started because I didn't agree with an unjustified action taken against my son. Since that day this 2 ladies staff members have made my son and my life miserable. They have show there true selfs to my perspective thy are immature, not educated what so ever and mental issues, that is the type of persons they have to watch over our kids, my son had never been to any principal's office I have never received calls or complaints from any school that he attend on the past...very sad this is the people that deserves to receive pink slips!!! I have reached my brake point and for my sons well been its best to not return with this kind of people... My advise do your research and listen to your kid good luck..

i am a student there and this school changes your life in the best ways. The teachers are actual credited students and they have real life experience. I'm a senior there and i have been going there for about 2 1/2 years. They teach you so much and when you leave you will look back on the school years and see that it is the best school that there has been built. They also help you with your outside life problems the whole staff is like your 2nd family.

Without a doubt, the most progressive high school around. REAL teachers, with REAL world experience molding students into critical thinkers that understand high school is the first step into "life".  Actions have consequences at this school and discipline problems are exited, not shuffled around the campus.  If you care about your child's future, enroll them now, I hope the make the cut!
