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.

My time at Summit High School can be described as decent. It's a clean, open school, that doesn't really make you feel uncomfortable. It's treated me well for the past four years, and I've met some of my best friends here. However, it does have it's flaws. The administration and some of the teachers can be really annoying and damage the experience of a high schooler. They typically don't know how to properly handle some situations, and can make them worse most of the time.
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.
