Summit Senior High School Reviews

Summit High School administration cares about their students and takes the time to work with them and help them develop. The school itself is very involved in the activities for the students . The parents are involved in fund raisers etc to help the school out.
I feel that Summit High School truly has prepared me for the college process through its rigorous academic courses and testing procedures. Also, the amount of clubs, activities, and sports offered are endless. There are so many ways for students to become involved at the high school. Not to mention these activities are all very welcoming and friendly no matter your grade, age, or gender.
Summit High school has done an amazing job preparing me with for my future. The education system has always pushed me to do my best and help prove to myself that I can always be greater. If you are willing to look for it you'll find that there are a lot of brilliant staff members that will support you in your journey. On top of the amazing resources that the school provides, it is very aware and caring of the students well being. For example, during the pandemic the administration as a whole have been very involved in the students mental health. They constantly send emails regarding contact information for people who can help, they take surveys in order to hear from the students and stay updated, they have also done a great job at not overloading the class schedules. Over all they have been an active part of our lives as we move through this change.
Academically Summit is very highly ranked but there is much to be desired when it comes to student support. There is only one councilor for over 1,000 students to go to for mental health and many on the staff don't attempt relationships with students. The school also has a habit of only allowing the same group of students to participate in leadership roles and clubs and activities and blocks out the rest of the School. There is no sense of community.
Through my 4 four years at Summit High School, there has been little to no complaints. The school is well funded, the food is above average, the class size is usually relatively small, and the sports and clubs involved with the school have shown that the teachers and coaches here are devoted to their students and athletes.
summit high school is a place that offers many opportunities to their students, the amount of electives are endless and range from a variety of feeds from architecture to even film studies or psychology. summit high school is not only a challenging place but one that helps you grow and get better. sometimes it is too challenging and students can feel challenges by other student academically or athletically I some cases.
Summit High School is overall a very friendly place and the teachers are especially helpful and knowledgeable. Theater, debate, and sports are what the high school is best at.
I like summit high school. I’ve enjoyed my three years here, and am so far enjoying the fourth too. I feel like I’ve gained a lot of knowledge and had many opportunities to grow and change.
I enjoyed my experience at Summit High. I played sports and was involved with other extracurricular activities.
I didn't have a great experience at Summit High School. The administration targets certain students and gives privileges to certain people over others. The sports teams are the most important thing in their eyes, and the people on the teams can get away with anything.
Summit High School is a wonderful school. It is a great school to send you child and know that they're safe. It is my experience that this make sure our children a willing to learn in every aspect of the school system.
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.
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.
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 highschool has a lot of opportunities for the students, whether it be electives/classes, or clubs, or sports. It also has easy access to technology, as every grade has a chromebook and has free access to the internet and printer. The teachers overall care about the students and want them to apply themselves so that they could go to a good college. Their curriculum is also above a few schools in new jersey.
Prepared me for college in more ways than just academics. Got great grades, and prepared me for college social life as well, so the transition after graduation was made much easier.
Summit High School, like any other school, has its pros and cons. At Summit, I received a very good education and learned a lot. However, the social aspect of Summit is not the greatest. All the sports teams and the musical groups dominate the social aspects of Summit.
