This School isn't that great students don't show much respect towards each other.Rules are broken on a daily basis.To top it off they're facilities aren't all that good,They have good sports teams but sadly some don't have a field to actually play home games,I'm just saying the football team that wins a lot shouldn't have to share the field with A.B. Miller High School.

Was worried about my child attending Summit based on information was reading and hearing. I have to say all of that has been false. The teachers here do utilize Zangle & return emails. My child-freshmen did state that it seems like rules are not enforced & that is sad when a student is saying this so that does worry-so I do wish that the Admin. team and security were on the ball with enforcing the rules. Dress code, hats and so forth.

I am a Student attending Summit High .... I've been attending this school since my freshmen year :) I have always had the most fun with friends and teachers at school, they always have great events like rallys, games and music on every Friday in the middle of the quad. Now being a SENIOR Class of 2012 I am glad to say that I will be graduatting in the best high school in the IE!!! Not only have we won CIFs for football and won Nationals with our chearleading team but we always make it far with all our other sports (crosscountry/track/soccor/baceball/softball/teniss/water polo ect..) Oh but it gets better than that we also always get first place in most of our band conserts, well for thoses that are into band and madrigal. Summit is just such a great place to be during your high school years from the great teachers that teach great topics to the amazing faculty. Summit is one place you'll never forget!!! GO SKYHAWKS!! class of 2012!!! "who's the best class and who's graduating??" ONE TWO THATS WHO!!! --Ana Barcenas SENIOR at Summit High

There are fights here a lot. And i hate it when every body makes a big deal about it . That is why i had to leave and went to Kaiser. So far its GREAT! The teachers are awesome and most students.

Summit HS is a wonderful school! My step-son is attending the school. Let's see how this year goes and I will be able to leave a more detailed review but so far so good.

i have been attending Summit for two years going on to my third. I was about to attend Montclair High School but had to move to Fontana. Compared with the work that my older siblings had to do in high school i believe that Summit could challenge us students a bit more despite how lazy we're getting. The teachers should not let the students boss them around&get disrespected. These past two years i kept thinking i was going to get a wake up call sometime, now that i'm going onto my junior year i'm thinking...why do so many people stress out about high school. but then again i'm not your average student. i like challenges&i haven't seen a single white hair. i really like the school, the teachers are great&REALLY help out. especially this past sophomore year.i'm glad i will be graduating from Summit High School in 2012. -Stephanie Z.

If the school is so great, why are the test scores so low? I would say the school is a disappointment at this point. Test scores are low across all groups. Have you seen a report where kids are getting accepted? The school needs some work--probably new leadership with a focus more than a typical public school.

This is neat - an opportunity to review Summit High School! My daughter attends there and I totally love the school and the environment for her! She started there in her Freshman year and now she's a Junior and I really love that she had the opportunity to enter this school is just the 2nd year of its existence! I think that new parents will like it, too! I give you a 5-star rating!

Summit is a growing school but already it has achieved academically. Many students as young as 15 are already being offered scholarships from California Scholarship Federation. Students can also choose from multiple extracurricular activities, not to mention activities during Lunch on Fridays (: Summit has a great community. Students with mixed personalities share a bond and there's no traceable cliques present. The teachers are very friendly and teach with fun methods. Summit Skyhawks is leading us towards the sky and to a successful future. GO SKYHAWKS !! 2011 !! (:

Summit High School is a new school and It has just finished it's second year. I'm a sophomore soon to be junior and I've been here all of my high school years. This is a great, freindly school and the enviorment is just wonderful. Summit High School has grown to become an outstanding high school and I am very proud to be apart of it' s growth.The teachers are so friendly and very helpful. Also Summit High has become a homosexual-friendly campus. Our school does have a Gay-Straight Alliance club and our campus is a safe place for that community. Summit High is here and we are the future and eveybody on this campus help each other out and We are ready.! GO SKYHAWKS!! 2010!!

I am very impressed by Summit High School. My family and I moved from Mission Viejo to specifically live in this area so my children could attend Summit High School! I am grateful about the parent-teacher support that exists at this School. Fellow colleagues and friends, are considering to move into this area for the High School! Both my husband and I are practicing professionals in the legal field and we are both excited and impressed about the possibilities this High School has to offer.

I am a parent and a teacher. I moved my son to this school from Etiwanda both to be with me and because I knew the principal, Mr. Andrus would be running a great school. I've worked at Etiwanda, Montclair and Kaiser. Summit is the best with Kaiser a close second.

Summit High school is a new school but its already great. I use to go to Summit for 10th grade and right now I am a junior and all though I don't go to summit now, I will return to graduate at summit high school. this school has the most amazing teachers who will sit there and take the time to notice you and also if you need help with personal problems theres a psychologist and counselors even teachers to always lend you their ear. I personally enjoy this school because theres not a lot of problems and plus they helped me improve my grades. so summit is a great high school. Go Skyhawks!!!!! '09!!!!!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
