Summit Public School - Shasta Campus Reviews

Honestly, I really loved Shasta the minute I arrived on campus my freshman year; however, things have changed in the three years since.

For the first couple of years, you really felt heard as a student if the vast majority agreed with you. Workshops? You got it. More study time? Mhm! Since the new head of Summit Schools took over, we as a community have not felt acknowledged or respected as students because of how ignored our complaints have gone. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE this school and everything it has to offer. The teachers actually listen to you and help you whenever and wherever possible, but the heads of Summit (all schools) don't help.

Academics are amazing and I feel I'm ready for college as a Senior. Here, I found many of my passions and have grown as a better, more confident individual. Every student can find someone they trust and something they love about the school.

I was surprised how Shasta wasn't just a college prep school. They really value relationships between teachers and students, which is particularly seen through their mentorship program. The staff are young, and for the most part, passionate about the subjects they teach. Office hours are highly encouraged, and teachers care about your non-academic life. As for the curriculum, I want to highlight that there aren't many courses to choose from-- apart from electives, you don't get to choose your schedule like at a normal high school. The arts program is limited and if you are interested in band, visual arts, or theatre, you will have to join/start a club on your own.
Shasta is not your typical high school. I do not say that to be cliche or anything but when you look at each aspect of the school, nothing close comes to it being a typical high school. We use Chromebooks, instead of pen and paper, our graduating class only had around 90 students (not because they did not graduate but because our population that just that minute), my middle school campus was larger than the Shasta campus, and the facilities were literally portables. But looking back at it now, I would not change my mind on the school that I went to. Sure there were flaws with this small school, there was no band and barely any arts, and the lunch food was mediocre at best. But even with all these shortcomings, the teachers and the students there made it worth every second of it. I have made so many memories and become close with everyone in my grade, something a lot of other high schools do not have the luxury of having. They did something that truly was different, and I enjoyed it.
