Great school, great staff, a no nonsense but very very nurturing environment. I cannot express our gratitude in finding Summit. Mrs. White is an incredible administrator who truly understands the needs of these children. Her staff is so admirable: talented, capable, caring. Our son cannot wait to come to school every morning, bounding out of the house to catch a 30 minute cabride. How many typically developing kids are that entusiastic?

My 8 year old son has thrived at Summit in the past 2 years. The principal, Johanna White, is truly gifted. Not only does my son come home with 5 pages a day of work but he is learning socialization skills and how to choose healthy foods. Words can not express how much Summit has done for our family.

The staff at Summit has gone above and beyond in assisting my ADHD son. The public school system was getting no where and the staff and my son were all frustrated with the lack of progress he was experiencing. His improvement since attending Summit has been phenomenal.

This is a wonderful school. My daughter spent 3 years there before being mainstreamed. She is now a senior at a private high school and on high honor roll. She has come so far since we were told by the social worker at the public school that she may never learn to read or write. We don't know what we would have done without this school. She has fond memories and still goes back for visits.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
