It was blessing to go through the Summit Public School district. I was very lucky to have teachers who were passionate about their work and coaches who were committed to athletic excellence. I was also fortunate to have excellent resources, including the ability to perform advanced scientific research, at my disposal. Most importantly, however, my experience in Summit was enriched by my fellow students. They were intelligent, caring, and committed to making a community-wide impact.

Being part of Summit High School has inspired me to keep fighting for my dreams and never give up. With Summit's community support, availability and school spirits it is really hard to end up in the wrong path. From dedicated, full time teachers to recently updated facilities Summit has everything to offer that a student would wish. Updated and modern libraries provide students with the most in what is out there when it comes to researching. Summit's dedicated law enforcers provide Summit students with the security and calmness needed to succeed in class. Summit's supportive community is also always out there to help those who need the most.
Summit has a great public school. The equipment in science classrooms works great. The teachers want to see you excel in the classroom. They are always open for extra help. They also push you harder. The work is challenging but worth it.The thing that brings it down is the people. There is a "bubble" where people in Summit never leave. As there are many wealthy people in Summit they assume that is how the whole world is. They parade around with the luxury goods. As teenagers, we all want to fit in. By not being able to afford certain things it can affect us negatively. Overall I know Summit has helped me become a better person.
