South Summit High School is an amazing school for only having 400 students enrolled, and having a limited budget. The teachers are amazing and with smaller class sizes it is much easier to connect with teachers and other students. I enjoy attending every day!

I love the fact that it is such a small school that you have the opportunities to participate in multiple things at a time. I have heard from many of my teachers who have attended bigger schools that it is not optional to be in all drama, tapestry/choir, band, and be on the swim team. I was involved with all of these at the same time, and I cannot imagine going through high school without participating in these extracurricular activities. I would, however, like to see some improvement with something. The class scheduling system, for example, (ten classes total: five a day and ten on Friday) makes it a little more complicated to accomplish many of the classroom tasks that need to be completed each semester. It would be nice to return to a block scheduling system where each Friday would switch off which five classes we would be attending.
I had a great experience at South Summit High School. I participated in sports, on the yearbook committe and was manager of the drill team and volleyball team. I think my high school was a great school to attended. We have a small student body so people know each other and we also have opportunities to participate in many sports and activities.
