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.

Though a small campus, the students and teachers are lively and ready to learn and teach. The students are diverse and friendly, and the teachers are wise and committed to their teaching.

The curriculum differs from other high schools. Class time is spent on the projects that test us on how well we can show important skills such as formulating a theme, selecting evidence, and discussion. The content knowledge comes from the Summit Learning Platform, which shows our whole year's worth of work that we study and master on our own. And hey, if you are a star student, you can even take sophomore classes your freshman year!

The Summit schools have the mentorship program, where students are assigned a mentor for all four years. I formed deep friendships under this system. My mentor was someone who I could go to whenever I needed advice, to vent, or just to chat.

I do not regret coming to Shasta. Coming here has actually made me eager to come to school every day!
What drew me to Summit Shasta was the idea of a more personalized learning platform, where students could go at their own pace. For instance, on the Summit platform, you can go ahead in the playlists and additional playlists if you work hard and pace yourself. Though, it can be difficult to do this while staying on top of all project work. However, there have been some issues with disciplining students, or the slight lack thereof in some cases. I do like that we have a rally on the first Friday of every month, to help get the students excited, and have the different grades compete in competitions to earn spirit points. I also like that we have mentor groups, which help build community, and Friday PLT to work on everything we need to. Although, they will likely be getting rid of Friday PLT next year, which is making many students reasonably upset.
