Summit Public School: Olympus Reviews

This school preaches independence and self-discipline -but as a junior I can speak from experience that this is not the case. The staff is very supportive academically and emotionally, and although there is more work than the average public school, the content of the classes is relatively easy. There have been a few (unfavorable) changes to the school hierarchy and policies, but it's bearable. Be warned: this school is strict policy-wise, and they keep a sharp eye on their students.

I like that I can work at my own pace and that I get a mentor and mentor group that I can connect with on a deeper level than just academically. The fact that this school is all about college readiness, that has lots of events and opportunities given for college. My school is very diverse lots of different races and ethnicities to where no one feels left out. I like how it is a no-judgment zone, based on race, gender, gender identity and how you express yourself. This is a very good school because your junior and senior year they automatically give you AP college readiness classes. Which challenge and prepare you for the college lifestyle.
My school turned my life around, i am surrounded by people with the same goals as myself and adults who i can trust. the student ratio is a GREAT number giving students the attention they need, the teachers are young which makes them easier to learn to grow and understand how other students learn. Summit public schools are charter schools getting students ready for their near future whether its college or other career choices.
