Summit School (The) Ratings & Reviews

January 26, 2016 Submitted by a parent
There are almost no schools geared for bright students who also have a disability.My daughter was originally accepted into Columbia Secondary School-a challenging program,however she was regularly a victim of bullying and exclusion due to poor social skills,she also needed some detailed directions and help with executive functioning skills.Summit provides these and more in a non threatening environment.We highly recommend Summit and for the first time -my daughter is happy.

The teacher that wrote the comment that Summit students are better off in mainstream classes because of their cognitive levels clearly does not understand the requirements of providing a Free And Appropriate Public Education. This teacher speaks in ignorance!! It is very sad that an educator who should know that the needs of the whole child have to be considered in making educational placement decisions seems to believe that because children have average or above intelligence, that fact alone warrants placement in an inappropriate class where the child is unable to function or produce academically. Accommodating disabilities to foster learning IS APPROPRIATE!!! Throwing children with dissimilar disabilities in a 12:1:1 or 15:1 class is irresponsibIe and serves no legitimate purpose other than to save the DOE money in mis-educating disabled students. Worse, offering General Education with SETTS to children with dyslexia, CAPD and speech challenges is morally reprehensible!! Yet, the DOE does this to parents who don't know any better every single day. I have seen it with my own eyes. I'M GLAD THIS TEACHER NEVER TAUGHT MY CHILD!!!!!

I've never seen so much arrogance in one setting. I'm ashamed of being an alumnus of such a dismal place.

Authority, respect & structure go hand in hand with success! Something I learned from my parent who has always been actively involved in my education. That is why I respect authority & understand why schools like the Summit school require structure. Because it is a school for students with a wide-range of special needs, disabilities, OHI, ED, etc., obviously adjustments have to be made to fit each individual students needs. In the case of a student with a neurological disorder who has involuntary symptoms, a "system" like the one the Summit school has, based on rules with punishment or reward is ineffective just as it would be for students with seizure disorders. Two of my former teachers at Summit Upper school humbly adjusted. Hopefully their attitude rubs off on school leadership. I am very happy to say that I have found learning success elsewhere! So have others I know who used to attend Summit. Its interesting to read the review from a parent whose son has been attending Summit for 50 days, "My son does very well with structure & clear rules so this system really works FOR HIM."

My son has started The Summit Upper school this year. He is extremely happy in school. The teachers know how to lift the children's self esteem and teach the kids in the way that they learn best. There is a lot of positive reinforcement all around. My son does very well with structure and clear rules so this system really works for him. I speak to the staff often and they always address our needs and concerns. I have 3 other children in different private schools and they do not get the attention and guidance that my son gets in The Summit School. I think he is a little under-challenged, but for now its ok for him. He's getting a lot of skills in dealing with his anxieties. Once he is a little stronger, I will push for him to be in higher level classes. I think its important for the parents to be very involved in the school and speak with the teachers often to make sure the child is getting the most from the school.
