Cities We Serve: Ahwatukee
The distinctive PreK-8 private school education we provide at Summit School draws families from a wide circle around our campus. Since we are located just eight minutes from the heart of Ahwatukee, many of our students and families from right around the corner call our school community their home. Read about what makes Ahwatukee and Summit School great places to be and take a copy of our Parent Info Packet with you today, as well. It has a helpful overview of all the wonderful opportunities for your child here.
What Makes Ahwatukee a Great Place to Live
It might be easy to let Ahwatukee’s proximity to Phoenix and its many amenities overshadow the vibrant life and opportunities here. However, local residents and visitors quickly see the remarkable quality of life and wealth of things to enjoy in Ahwatukee. Community events (including an internationally recognized annual chili cookoff) abound and our community is bordered by South Mountain Park, the largest municipal park in the U.S.! Boasting more than 16,000 acres, outdoor enthusiasts will never run out of opportunities to enjoy hiking, horseback riding, and fun in this tremendous natural preserve.
Ahwatukee offers the best of small-town living along with easy access to the nearby international airport, shopping, museums, cultural attractions, and Phoenix’s world-class entertainment venues. If you are new to the area or considering a move here, we can’t wait to greet you and your family as new neighbors!
The Difference at Summit School
Of course, every school culture and curricular focus is different and we invite you to get to know more about ours at Summit School. One core value we can highlight here is that we foster “Intrinsic Motivation” in our students. When you entrust us with your child’s education, he or she is going to become an enthusiastic, curious student who simply loves to learn.
That will make a huge difference for the rest of their lives but it’s amazing to watch our visitors see what a difference it makes in our school community right now. When kids are excited to come to school instead of dreading it, it has a profound impact on learning, peer relationships, and overall student success.
