Summit Senior High School Reviews
School administration is slightly inadequate. Lunches and food offered general are pretty bad quality. I personally can recall a time when my friend found mold in his fruit that he was about to eat. Security guards eat in the bathroom hoping to catch students vaping, peek over closed doors in the bathrooms. Some bathrooms get locked because there is only 2 guards so school believes only 2 bathrooms should be open during lunch. Some teachers were very hard to work with and administration refuses to cooperate in changing the teacher even before the school year started, even though for some people they do.
Summit High School is among one of the best! The school offers great academics and opportunities to grow as an individual during ones four years. Compared to many public school Summit excels in all aspects including but not limited to academics, sports, college readiness and rigor in academics.
The school has a good environment and the teaching is more or less very good. The only issue, for me at least, is that some of the teachers are very unlikeable and the way they teach makes it very hard to learn much of anything. And it's not just my opinion either, many upper class men to I've talked to and my friends tell me the same thing about a few teachers. Other than that the students are very nice and most of the teachers are quite friendly and supportive. It's a bit expensive to go but that's because of the curriculum. Everything in summit is kind of expensive after all so that's to be expected. If you're coming here from another town I'd recommend you come during your freshman or sophmore year, because if not it might be a little difficult to adjust to everything since past freshman and sophomore year everyone more or less knows how things work or what to do. And you'll be completely lost. The school does a good job at making the freshman feel comfortable though.
