I love the school spirit and how everyone comes together to make such a great school! Every department and different groups of people are equally supported from theatre to football etc. Something I would change about summit is giving the teachers deeper background checks and more extensive interviews to make sure they will treat all students equally no matter their race, size, sexuality, religion, gender, etc.

I recently moved from Los Angeles and attended Summit. Overall, Summit has an amazing sports program, and a decent academics program as compared to other schools in the area. However, I have attended Summit for 3 years now and I have yet to meet a genuine friend. Summit is the most cliquey school I have ever attended. Nobody reaches out to meet new people, and most of the people are close minded and lack perspective. Everyone has a different experience, however talking to other people who attended Summit, we all agree that the student body, which appears to be friendly, makes new people feel as if they are unwanted, so the complete opposite of being friendly. The lack of diversity supports this in addition to the un accepting culture in Bend to people from out of state, especially Californians. Overall, the poor student body out weighs the academics and sports benefits.
Summit is very competitive in both academics and athletics. Although I do feel very prepared for college and satisfied with my social experiences, I wish Summit High School offered more diversity and better math and science programs. All of the literature and writing teachers are top of the line and have very supportive, interactive, successful classes. However, the science classes seem underfunded and like they do no have the teachers or equipment to support and teach kids who love subjects like biology and chemistry. The same thing can be said for the math department, classes like Algebra and Statistics are not fulfilling at Summit. The teachers are very kind and helpful and do their best to help students succeed. Summit provides students with many job shadowing opportunities, extracurricular activities , sports, and clubs. It is a very well rounded school as far as academics, athletics, and music programs go.
