Summit Academy Secondary - Canton4

This is a great school. My son was in multiple public schools and had failing grades until I put him here in 2009. I found that it was how the teachers were handling him. He didn't understand most of the work, or how it was explained, and teachers these days seem to want kids to fall in line and not need any additional explanation. When he would ask questions, or get behind, he somehow ended up in the office multiple times a week. He is a very intelligent child. He is now the peace maker and gets almost all A's. This school helped build his confidence. They let go things that were not a major deal, so they could focus on how they could help him. The school is a lot more out of the box. They have martial arts and basketball. They also offer the children into early college in Junior and Senior High, and this way they can transition into public school with still having the help of Summit teachers. They have the absolute best teachers and they have no tolerance for teachers that are not there for the best interest of the students.
