Summit Preparatory Charter High School Ratings & Reviews

Summit has powerful core values that are heavily practiced. They strive to prepare this diverse group of students for success. 100% of those who graduate are accepted to a 4 year college. The energy the staff gives off is amazing. Its a small community where everyone works together.I, as a first generation student, had no idea about college. Summit made sure we understood the steps to take so we feel ready for the college world. They had us volunteer for our junior year, take SAT/ACT classes, take multiple AP courses, take AP tests, work in groups, and much more. I had a beautiful journey that I am very grateful for.

I am currently a Junior at Summit Prep (2015) and I feel like the system of the school is refreshing and I have a very high academic rigor with all of my classes. All of the Upper Class teachers are top notch and people have to understand that even thought 9th and 10th seem easy there is a lot of work in 11th and 12th and I can believe that I will be prepared for college. I would also like to back up the special Ed team at summit because I have dyslexia and they are very understanding. They especially pay attention to special Ed students and the whole school is involved and they believe EVERY student can take AP classes and pass the test and be ready for college. That is my two cents.

Summit's approach seems idyllic, & is refreshfing in many ways, but also falls short . On the plus side: project-based work & student mentorship. If your child is a solid to high performer or comes from a well performing middle school, they may not be challenged. There is no tracking in this HS: kids at all levels are combined (even special needs). My child has expressed that classes are catered to the lowest commmon denominator. Students have Chrome books and "self learn" from Playlists. My child has shared that teachers don't spend much time teaching in class, andmuch of their time is online. Teachers are well educated, but for the most part are very young. Summit's goal is to have every child prepared for college - it does not differentiate student's preparedness based on drive, talent, intelligence, etc. The student will self-learn and self-differentiate themselves based on how may "playlists" they accomplish. There are little extracurricular opportunities, no PE, and limited sports teams. There is little school spirit & parental involvement, and Summit administration continuously struggles with building a cohesive, involved parent community. .

Summit's students use Chrome books and teach themselves from Playlists, Summit calls this "self learning". Teachers are no longer educators helping teach students. They have become web hosts who tell students to "Google it". It's likely this is why they have such a high turn over rate with faculty. Summit's Special Education Program is one of the worst I've experienced. They really don't have a program other than offering special ed students support class time. Special ed students are forced to take the same AP classes as the rest of the student body utilizing the self teaching method. Teachers have little experience helping these special needs students and are often uniformed regarding their IEP (Individualized Educational Plan). Instead of helping special ed students and their families, they deny and deceive. Its all about the mighty dollar. Summit harms these special children by causing anxiety and depression. If you try and fight back they get their lawyers involved. Shame on them for treating special needs children and families in this way.

The small class size, and personable teachers helped my freshman son start the year feeling very safe and excited to be at Summit. He was eager to dig in and give it his all. Then we hit an obstacle. At the beginning of the second semester, he became overwhelmed, got sick often, and started missing school. I sent a note to Ms. Pak, the school s Director. I received her reply within a couple of hours, and agreed to attend a meeting the next morning with her, all of my son s teachers, and my son. Ms. Pak made it clear that she cared about every student and asked my son to explain to everyone what was troubling him. After listening to him, each teacher shared his/her perspective, personal challenges, suggestions, and steps each of them would take to help him through. Wow! He bounced back, and is thriving again. I think Summit has bright, engaging, and driven teachers. I am thrilled to see the experiments they have the courage to take. I understand not all will work.
