    I’m thrilled that my children have the opportunity to attend a school such as Summit with master teachers, small class sizes, amazing extra curricular classes, and exceptional project based learning. Joining the community in intermediate grades, we were welcomed warmly and openly. The administration communicates effectively and efficiently. Our overall experience with the staff, teachers, administration and students has been wonderful! The only “negative” I have about Summit is that they don’t have a baseball team, yet. I highly recommend Summit to families of students pre-K-8!

    Summit School has been an oasis in the storm of COVID. Everyone - from the administration to the support staff - has worked tirelessly to find solutions and support families through this turbulent time. It is crystal clear that the focus at Summit, first and foremost, is providing a warm, welcoming, supportive environment for every kiddo in their community. The teachers are beyond compare. Their care and dedication is tangible, whether in-person or through a computer screen. They adapt and work with parents to make each child is seen, heard, and supported. Sending your child to Summit School will provide them with a top-notch, character-driven, engaging education in a warm and supportive environment.
    I'm sad that this school has floundered so much and that my daughter will not return next year to this school. But it is time for us to move on. Leadership all around has failed this school. The leadership at this school is very toxic, a culture of divide and silence and cater to the Board members and their children first. The school sells itself as a school that is about the whole child, but their actions and policies often go against that. My daughter gets only 15 minutes to eat lunch and 15 minutes of recess only. In the year of COVID you would think she would have a lot of outside time. But this school also failed to implement needed resources for in person learning such as more outside time, hand washing stations, water refill stations, HEPA filters, swivel technology, etc. Instead I have seen a teacher beg on Facebook for classroom supplies to support asynchronous teaching, then Summit Cancelled classes multiple time to switch to online learning. School is Toxic and fake
