I am happy to say that I LOVE Summit! They prepare kids for college, have extremely high standards, and are an extraordinarily safe school! There is no other school I would send my children to!

Summit Academy North High School has been awarded the status of being a "Top 5% Reward School" by the State of Michigan for showing the greatest gains in student achievement. If you want to hold your children to high standards and have them be prepared for college, then Summit if right for you! If you prefer to make excuses for your child, than Summit is not the best place for your child. Have high standards, choose Summit!

Summit Academy High School is the worse environment to place your child especially African American males. There are fears within some leadership and staff that lend itself to personal bias, lack of due process and or unfair/unequal treatment. We have experience as a parents that leadership at this school uses intimidation and discouragement based on their lack of experience outside of the high school environment. We believe that the High School Leadership has a mission which is culturally disastrous for Black males (If you allow it). This "School Environment" de-grates and diminishes hope, and the ability to become outstanding citizens. We have removed our child from Summit Academy North High School and he is on track to attend college this year despite the attempt to demoralize his character and culture. We believe that this experience alone has prepared our son for what the world of hatred and personal bias has to offer. We would never send a child to such an environment in which decisions about the livelihood of students are based solely on personal beliefs and false facts or accusations. This high school does not allow students to respectfully speak up about injustice.

This school is excellent!. The teachers communicate their expectations to the student and keep parents updated.

In the past, Summit was a great school. I've been with Summit from Kindergarten until this year, my senior year. I feel as if Summit is making some choices that are not really based upon parent's and student's wishes. There's still a great group of students and several excellent teachers, but I would evaluate all options before choosing to attend here again (mostly due to bad teacher hiring choices).

You will not find a better high school no matter how hard you look. The teachers all have a real attitude about making sure the students are learning what they need to in order to advance as productive adults in our community. Keep it up Summit!

I have to say as my child transitioned this year to Summit, I wasn't very impressed. Some teachers are not approachable. They use intimidating tactics towards the students especially when parents address concerns directly. Whats also alarming is that there are no academic counselors that monitors the students progression throughout there schooling. On the good side I love the school's No Excuses policy in which they offer before school and after school tutoring for students. Summit seems to be missing something. My wife and I are looking at other options.

I decided to pull my kids from Summit Academy schools because the teacher turn over rate in the high school is too high. I chose another school that has experienced teachers for my children.

I am a parent of a Summit 9th grade student. What I like best about Summit is the commitment the teachers show the students. Students are challenged and have every opportunity to get any extra help they need if they are struggling with a subject. Students are expected to show initiative to arrainge to get that help (ask questions, arrainge to meet with the teacher before or after school.) His teachers have always been willing to spend any extra time they need to with him. Parents can track their students progress through power school. District assessments may be a large portion of a students grade, but I have found that almost always my student 1. knows when the test will be, 2. has been provided with a study guide and 2. has the opportunity to retake the test. Caring teachers have made his transition into high school very smooth. Go Dragons!

I am a parent of a student that attend this of a school. They care more about the dress code and distrcrit test then they do about the students. My son went from an A+ to an F because of these. Please dont send your son/daughter here.

I loved this school at one time. I have had two children in Summit Academy school. About three years ago they started giving district tests that are teacher created to the students. The district tests are worth half of the students grade. They give six test s throughout the school year. My daughter went from a B to a F because of these tests. What the school does not realize is that other schools' district tests are not worth half of the students' grade. When they fail, it puts Summit's students behind in grade point averages when competing for university acceptance. My question is 'What happened to Summit's philosophy that everyone learns at a different pace? What happened to individualized learning? What happened to multiple intelligences?'

I honestly love this school I am a Summit Middle school Student, but I sure love Summit. I have learned so much and the teachers work with us, I like the dress-code but its not the teachers fault if the children do not get good grades, its their fault if they dont try. If they have their shirt tucked in then they wont have a problem with the teachers reminding them. The only kids that dont get good grades are the ones that dont try, I think Summit Academy is a great school for me, they teach me all the academics I should know, and I am in 7th grade honors, reading a US History book that my brother had in 10th grade at Romulus High. Go Summit Dragons!

I give only 2 stars based on quality of education only. Unfortunately, the majority of students at Summit are there because of problems in the public school systems, not for educational excellence. Summit seems to accept any student without considering previous diciplinary problems in the student's record. Summit accepts students from any community, including Detroit. This has led to cultural problems as well. While Summit does have a small percentage of high achieving, academic focused students, it has more than it's share of bad apples discarded from their public school system. Summit has a strict uniform policy, which as a parent, I am fully supportive of. I thought that this would give all children an equal opportunity to be judged as who they actually are, not based on what they are wearing. Unfortunately, this is not the case. ---end part 1----

Summit was actually enjoyable when Mr. Maci was the Assistant principle there, he was strict when needed to and a friend in need at the right time, Mr. Sorentino is just way too strict, One small infraction and he is after you with a nice 2 day In-House suspension and all. I Myself am normally not a bad student, but this year I've been sent to In-House at least 5 Time's for nothing, I never have gotten in-house until Mr. Sorentino has started to be the Asst. Principle here. He even expelled a good friend of mine just for Tardies, And all my friend needed was 1 and 1/2 credit's to graduate, Too strict for a Charter school like ours.

Summit Academy is an amazing school. My son started at the elementary school when he was in kindergarten and is now in 10th grade. I am a certified teacher in a public school and I do not feel there is any better option for schools in the area. The teachers have open communication with both students and parents. You can view your student's overall grades, as well an grades for individual assignments online. They have a zero tolerance for violence or drugs and students are expelled for these offenses. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

I came to Summit, straight out of a 'high quality' private school, with an extremely low level of self-confidence and self-worth. The staff, students, and coaches at this school helped me believe in myself and became an active involvement in my life and adademic quality, raising my over all GPA to a 3.87. I love this school, and i would never leave if i had the option. Yes, the teachers may be young, but that also aids in their ability to reach a level of trust and understanding with the students and create a comfortable environment for us. As for the new assistant principle, he has done wonders for the orginaztion of the school as well as the performance and security of the students. The atomosphere is very welcoming and you really have to be a student there to undestand it's greatness at the deserving level.

I sent my children to Summit hoping it would give them some better disciplne and GUIDANCE and I agree with Mrs.Johnson. The teachers do not know how to handle themselves! The principlas are to wrapped up in their self pity that they have no idea what is going on around them and there are way to many drug problems in the schoool! I pulled my children out of Summit before it was to late and I dont regret it AT ALL!

Mrs. Johnson, I am sorry to see your disproval of the school. There are going to be many changes in the up-coming year. A new addition to the administration is coming from Grosse Ile. Which, if I am right, is rated the best public school. Hopefully, your veiws will change. By the way you shouldn't be cutting up the teachers with your poor knowledge of the written English language. -a parent

Administration leaves alot to be desired. Principal and assistant principal very young. No support for parents if child is not doing well in school. Some of the teachers are fresh out of college and not very well with students.
