Welcome to Summit School

My favorite part of every day at Summit is watching eager students being stretched to learn and grow into their best selves by our expert teachers.  A close second are the high-fives, fist bumps, or shouts of “hey, Mr. B!” I get to hear each day from students.  They are a reminder that nurturing relationships are the heart of the partnership between Summit educators and parents to support our students’ intellectual, social and emotional development.  These relationships help us equip students with the knowledge, skills and values they need to thrive in the classroom–and in life. Experiencing learning as a joyful process of discovery is a hallmark of the Summit Experience and prepares them for a future that will be filled with rapid change and continuous learning.  Taking on problems with creative and innovative solutions will be essential to the future—one that starts now. We look forward to connecting with you to share next generation private education at Summit School!

Go Sabrecats,

Mark Bistricky, Head of School
