The teachers of KIPP: Summit were some of the most supportive, caring people I've had the honor to meet. The care they put into each student really set each and every one of us up for high school. Expectations were high, and teachers set up students to meet the challenge. While the school was fantastic academically and supportively, I would have liked to see more experience outside the classroom. Funding for the school is limited, and is therefore put less into field trips and activities. However, the amount of time and care each teacher puts into the school is unmatched anywhere else, and outweighs the lack of funding for field trips and extra-curricular's.

During my years in this middle school, I have acquired a lot of information in various fields. The teachers are relatively nice even if you do not know the teacher personally. The school also has long hours due to their high emphasis on education. However, there is also a lot of time spent on activities throughout the year. May Day Play Day, for example, is an event in May when kids get to have fun after the stressful California Standardized Tests. A flaw during my time there was the strictness. My grade was required to walk in lines from class to class, which is not efficient since some kids might need to use the restrooms between bells and others might need to talk to a teacher after class. After transitioning from this middle school to high school, I was not used to the system of walking freely between classes. It caused confusion since I was so used to the "walking in lines" system at KSA.
During my time, the dress code was extremely strict. You only had the options of khaki pants, black shoes, and a KSA t- shirt. If a student did not have a belt or were out of uniform, the student will have to get their missing gear from the lost and found or their parents, which have to drive back to school in order to drop off the gear. Later on, the staff relaxed on the dress code. Denying privileges is an extremely common punishment. This, in return, causes an uproar among the students. One day, a teacher felt disrespected and requested a silent lunch. Later, the silent lunch evolved into assigned seating for HALF the year. What kind of middle school makes students sit in assigned seats and stay silent during lunch? This only causes an increase in misbehavior and hatred towards the school.
