Summit Public Schools’ mission is to prepare a diverse student population for success in college and to be thoughtful, contributing members of society.

Curriculum & Instruction

Summit K2 prepares students for college through personalized project-based learning, mentorship, and reading/math interventions. Students meet with their mentor, who helps them to build key habits such as time management and managing stress, three times per week. Teachers build critical thinking skills via a rigorous UC/CSU-approved curriculum, and specialized support is offered both in class and after school. All high school students also take a college readiness class.

The school also practices restorative justice to ensure all students are able to meet our behavior expectations and to empower both students and parents to be involved.

To build a positive culture, Summit has monthly rallies, spirit weeks, and dances.

The school communicates regularly with parents and families via weekly newsletters, TeamSnap, robo-calls, and mailers and offers a parent education series and a PTA. After school programming includes Boys & Girls Club, clubs, sports, and academic support.

COVID-19 Safety Information

As the pandemic entered our lives in the Spring of 2020, Summit committed to make decisions in the best interest of our students and the safety of our community.
