Middle School Student: The Project School students work on year-long housing, sustainability project

At the Project School, it’s not uncommon for a Lowe’s gift card to be dropped off at the front desk, power tools to be in the mailbox, or parents to offer up a 12-passenger van.
Yearlong service-oriented projects done by seventh and eighth graders have been happening for years, and Tarrey Banks and Scott Wallace, who co-teach the seventh and eighth-grade classes, said parents and community members know that whatever they donate will be put to use for a project at some point.
A reputation has been built, Banks said. He hadn’t even left the showcase of last year’s project before people were asking him what the next one would be.
This year, students are working with clients to design and build auxiliary backyard structures, such as playhouses and studios.

Parent: Summit is an overall great school. They have a great pickup/ dropoff plan if everyone would follow it. The only thing I have issues with is that they don't deal with bullies well or at all!
