Summit View Independent Study School Reviews

By a Current Student on

Summit View is amazing.It's a very good school and every teacher cares for the success of each of their students.they may be tougher on some to push them into graduating.The teachers are good role models.They are all kind.The work load seems a bit overwhelming at first but I prefer doing work at my own pace then when i went to North.The teachers dont stress you at all. They encourage you to work toward graduation.Summit View may be associated with "the bad kid" school but most of the students I have seen are hard workers. This is not for you though if you are not discipled enough to do the work on your own. You would need to be focused and willing to give up a few of your weekends.But it is good practice for college.

This school is the best. The teachers are amazing, and actually care about each student. I regret having moved out of this district. I doubt will ever meet a teacher a nice and helpful as Mr. Hill. The aides were terrific too. Hopefully we find our way back and my daughter can go back there.

I attended Summit View this since February of 2009 it is a great school my teacher was a lot of help. I am graduating this year a year early. This school has been a great thing for me, I came intothe school credit deficient or with a lack of credits and year later Im ahead and graduating. This was a goodchoice for me but it might not be if you think you can slack off doing well takes dedication.

I attended Summit View my freshman year through my Junior year. I thought it was a really great school. I wished I would have stayed at North tho.

You choose classes you want to take but you have to take them all. I took my English class with Math and when I finished a years worth I went on to Science and an elective and so on. You get school books from their library and when your finished with a class you turn in the books and you can start on another subject.

Every classroom has about 5 teachers who have their own desk area and an area for a student or two. You get assigned a teacher and a day and time to have your "conferance". Each week you turn in your homework, take a test and do more homework. Every time you finish an English class you write an essay. If you recieve a high score you don't  have to write any more essays the remainder of the time your there. They have Classrooms to help you in math, science, a computer lab etc.
