Summit School District gives students many different opportunities to their students. Students are able to talk to their councilors about future careers and will help students by providing them with the necessary books and information they need.Classes such as Personal Finance helps Juniors and Seniors get prepared for their future by learning about money management and how to apply for scholarships, FAFSA, etc.There are also technician and culinary classes which gives students hands on tasks that can help provide them for future careers
Summit School Districts’ food consists of pizza and unhealthy foods the majority of the time not prioritizing healthy lifestyles .Studies say schools should start around 10:00 because that is when the brain can retain more information,this would be very beneficial to all. Students are expected to be in class by 07:45 to learn for seven hours and go home or to our jobs and being able to finish homework before the next day.

I began Summit High School on August 2014 as a freshman and I have to say now as a senior graduating in 2019, it has been the best 4 years of high school! The staff is amazing, the teachers really want you to succeed and they really want you to do your very best. I can see that the school has a great team and it also has very good accommodations. The school has been remodeled to mimic a college life and it really did work. It gave the school a good look and it really does look like a college campus. The students there are very friendly and the majority of the school plays more than 2 sports. Overall, Summit High School has a great leading environment, great staff, and a fun atmosphere!
Growing up going to school in Summit County, I got to experience things I wouldn’t have experienced anywhere else. In my elementary school I got to speak my native language in class and still learn English in the Dual Language Program. This carried with me to High School. I’ve been able to be a member of the Pre-Collegiate Program, where first generation students have the ability to become college ready, of which was a wonderful resource for me to learn to apply to colleges, FAFSA, scholarships, something that my parents and I had no clue how to do. There are various ways for a student to get involved. Something I would change is the diversity in staff. Growing up in the Summit School District I only saw Caucasian educators, which does impact the way students of color: Hispanics, Latinos, African-Americans, view the education system and their ability to further their education after High School.
