Uplift Summit International Preparatory - High School Reviews

160 reviews
All Categories
The teachers were great but the administration did not listen to student concerns or ideas. Student morale is low because of the lack of extracurricular activities and programs. The teachers are well qualified and are sympathetic to student concerns. They are more connected to the students than the administration who do little to bring activities and morale boosting events to students and do not enforce their school ideals and rules very well. Overall, their outside image does not reflect the problems and troubles the administration has and the lack of morale the students contain. It is basically an average high school with overpriced uniforms.

My experience has been good so far. I enjoy the rigor of the classes I take and the help with college applications have been great. I really feel like I am being challenged with the IB program and that when I finish college will be a breeze. One thing I want to mention is that I feel communication between administration and the student body could be better but I know the people in charge are working at it so I am not too worried. I am excited to see what the school has in store for the years to come!
Summit is a charter school focused on giving minorities the opportunity to go to college. This school offers IB courses, AP Courses, Higher level, Standard Level, PreAct/PreSAT, Copious tutoring, and college preparation for free. They also have amazing teachers that immerse themselves in the profession. The small school also means you know everyone, ad aren’t just a number both teachers and students. In addition, it’s charter status makes us very diverse. Asian, Hispanic, African, and even gendered and sexually diverse. However with so much emphasis on academics we like elsewhere. The only sports we have are volleyball, basketball, and cheer. We don’t have a band or choir. The games get little turn out and overall school spirit is low due to such a small school population. There’s low club turnout clubs like Creative Writing, Korean Dance Club, Dungeons and Dragons as they are niche and only 3-6 people join. Overall, summit is meant for the extremely academically inclined.
