Summit is a very welcoming school environment, and I enjoy going to school there. There are a lot of clubs and activities to be involved in. We even have a fishing team! I love all the activities I can do at the school; however, I think there needs to be more real world education. Williamson County is in its own bubble. I am fortunate to receive a very good education, but I think Summit needs to have some more classes to prepare students for the future--- to teach us street smarts and how to be prepared for life.

Switching from Independence High School to Summit High School was one the best decisions I ever made. The entire experience of being in the first graduating class of Summit High School was an amazing one. Our sports weren't the best, simply because we were made up entirely of sophomores playing senior students and varsity teams, but our school spirit never failed our school. Summit is filled with the best faculty, students, and parents. Summit makes each student feel as if they belong and are involved with a community. I made many new friends and formed extraordinary bonds with numerous of my teachers at Summit. Summit provided me with an amazing high school experience and got me ready to leave for college. Go Spartans!
I moved to Williamson County after my freshman year. I was used to diversity and seeing all different people from vastly different backgrounds. Summit, to me, is like a bubble. It keeps in the upper to middle class elitist children who have not been exposed to the reality of the world. They seem to not understand the diversity. They don’t seem to get that not everyone has mass amounts of wealth or that ones parents can afford to do everything for them. Summit is a great school and it’s academics pushed me and prepared me for college but the culture of the school follows one of a private school. Many cliques all compiled with tons of new students does not create a welcoming feel to the massive school. I would recommend Summit to a parent that wants their kid to feel safe and feel motivated to learn and get ready for the next step. On the other hand, if a parent wants their kid be open to diverse cultures and a range of social classes then I would not recommend this school.
