I have been a part of this district for over 8 years and I have found it is a very good district to be in. I feel that it is making good changes to accommodate the ever growing community and with new additions on all the schools, there is room for more people to come. I would like to see the finished remodeled Sumner High School and the new schools in Tehaleh before I go to college. I had a great time though High school and running start and I feel it the district has inclined academic and is a place everyone should go.

Sumner offers the IB studies which seemed to be a bonus but in the end was not beneficial. The work was challenging but the support/teaching was not. Looking back on this now as patents, we would not recommend this for a child who may be in sports or other activities or holds a job. Too much!
I was in the sumner school district K-12 and I quite enjoyed my time there. I think that the schools I attended had very interactive and thoughtful staff. I think most of what the schools lacked was diversity and awareness of diverse cultures, I think that the school district is on its way to be much better and I hope it is.
