This is a great school with many wonderful programs such as Band and Vocal Music that allow students to be involved as well as be in an environment to learn and grow. Great teachers and leadership to encourage kids to make it through challenging middle school years! We have really liked this school and even moved to get our second child into this one.
Amazing school in a great area. Very happy my daughter was able to attend Summit all three years. Many extra curricular activities to chose from, many class options to challenge her, and overall the other students were great kids.
Summit-teachers and staff play what ever game they need to-if you fit in there little click and come from certain families that they know have money in this area of Edmond-you will be very happy there/they are going to do whatever they have to to make there job easy-even tell your child they love them and give them cheap gifts and try and tell the child that they want a good repour with them-the teacher should never give a child a gift of any kind for any reason unless the parent knows and agrees-and then tell them it is something someone else did not want-no teacher should tell a child for any reason that they love them-it makes my child feel very uncomfortable and my child says herself that it is just a way of trying to get the kid to think that they can trust them-the school and staff have an agenda-I understand that they are trying to be there for kids that are being abused-but that is the wrong way to go about it-some kids see through it and don't have trust in them even more! I tell my child that she has the right to say no to any gift and to tell them that it makes them fell uncomfortable when they say they love them-it is a game to build false trust-
My son is in 6th grade and is ADHD and has other special needs and is doing very well. He has had a few issues and they were brought to my attention and fixed promptly. My son likes taking the bus and enjoys his classes and teachers. So far so good!
Summit Middle School is good school for bright, very independent, and self-disciplined, students who don't need a positive student/teacher relationship. There is a lot of homework (50 to 100 of the same math problems for example). Teachers at Summit use negative reinforcement (as opposed to positive reinforcement) which makes lower performing students quickly hate school. Warning: Don't let your children ride the school bus. There is no control on the bus and anything goes.....I mean anything. If you choose Summit, like many schools, you must commit to driving your student to and from school. In addition, as with many schools, if your child needs special attention like a teacher student relationship and not just a number, or your child has strong feelings, or has ADHD , or has ADD, or is a lab student this is not the school for you. They will hate school and perhaps not recover.
I think Summit is a great school. I'm going to be in 7th grade this year. Yeah, there are ups and downs but every school is like that. The teachers are great! And I have tons of friends here! I love it...at times. Hahaha. But I mostly love it.
