What Our Community is Saying
“Summit School has to be seen to be believed. It’s a veritable educational utopia comprised of passionate educators, engaged students, and a supportive community of parents. At Summit, you’ll find innovation without gimmicks. The atmosphere is very warm and positive as a school environment should be. If you’re able to send your child to Summit, you’ll be glad you did.”
“Summit School is unlike any school we have ever seen! When we started looking for a preschool for our daughter, all we knew for sure is that we wanted to send her to a welcoming, loving environment with a strong emphasis on learning and challenging her to succeed. Summit School far surpassed all of our expectations and opened our eyes to incredible programs that we didn’t even know we were looking for!!”
“We have been nothing but impressed by Summit’s small student-to-teacher ratio, the genuine caring and support of the teachers, and an academic program that challenges children to learn new things while still building their self-esteem. Our son has grown in leaps and bounds this year and the great program at Summit is a huge part of that growth. I am pleased to give my highest possible recommendation on behalf of the school.”
