Summit Middle School equips students for high school and successfully navigating adolescence through a rigorous STEAM-based curriculum that develops both students’ intellect and character.  Nurturing relationships with caring teachers and peers create a culture of safety and respect to support student growth.  Our Middle School environment stimulates intellectual curiosity, independent thinking and creative problem solving.  Students develop social and emotional skills to become secure, well-adjusted young people prepared to make good life choices.

Highlights of the Middle School curriculum include:

  • Math preparation begins with differentiated instruction. Both advanced math and intervention opportunities are available. Seventh grader students study seventh grade math, pre-algebra, or algebra while eighth graders complete pre-algebra, algebra, or geometry.  
  • Science lab class
  • Separate language arts and literature classes
  • Social studies class
  • Spanish class
  • Sixth through eighth graders choose one elective per quarter to explore a new interest and broaden their horizons:
