I have a 5th grader with learning differences the public school system didn't acknowledge even as she fell behind grade levels. She is now at grade level in Math, exceeding grade level in other subjects and thriving! she will be able to attend any hs she wants. Thanks, Summit!

My daughter was in a public school for three years and did not thrive. She is in a school that celebrates her "can do's", is joyful and learning!

This school has been a god send for my two boys. In our experience the entire staff has exceeded all our expectations. Our 15 yr old is now at Trinity HS. Tour the school, meet the staff and decide for yourself. Your children will be glad you did.

Excellent school for my daughter with learning differences. Has made a huge difference in her academic success. Teachers and administration work with families to create individualized learning experiences as needed. Students are pushed to their potential, but not exasperated. My dd has made years of progress in just one year at Summit!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

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 »
