Amazing school! The staff is extremely educated. The academics are outstanding. The school is well organized. 5 stars!

This school is a reflection of what is wrong with American society. The level of entitlement and narcissism is unbelievable. The students are spoiled and are entitled to everything and they love to put others beneath them. The staff is lazy and rude, and they don't actually care about the students. Yes we do have a good sports program, but the other extracurricular activities are never recognized. The assemblies and dancies are a joke that everybody mocks. The teachers often favor athletes and popular students, and if you are normal they will not want to talk to you.

This school is terrible from stuck up kids, to bullying this school cares more about athletics than academics. Worse experience in schooling ever!

Develops character: Agree

New parent. I have been impressed with the quality of instruction and administration. The students not so much, way too much drug use and sports not academics.

Speaking from experience, Summit is the worst school you could choose for your child, unless you are extremely wealthy like 90% of the students and their families. The administration is terrible, and look the other way at students with real issues like bullying and depression. The attendance office secretaries laugh and scoff at students and the teachers have cliques just like all of the students. Students who attend Summit are ashamed for it; and assemblies, football games, and dances are a joke. Teachers favor students who are popular and usually athletes. Most people who get bullied at Summit transfer to Bend High, and everyone knows it.

Since the new school principal was hired the school has gone downhill. The student feels as if she is taking away from the school. Assemblies are not engaging, and are usually thought of as a joke. Not many students are involved with the school, and new students feel as if it is a bad environment for making new friends. Every moment seems to be uncomfortable here. All the teachers are great people, however the faculty (all but Holler) do not relate to the students, and almost treat us as young kids, instead of growing adults.

I am a senior at Summit and have been here since Freshmen year. The education is engaging and interesting if you take A.P. classes, but can lack charisma in standard classes. However, the student body is somewhat arrogant and snobby. Most everyone is nice and approachable, but most come from affluent families and are constantly feeling entitled. If you are not from a wealthy family it may be slightly difficult to fit in. The administration is inconsistent. We recently got a new principle who is very unpopular with the students. In the first months upon arriving she instated a strict dress code and began cracking down on the dances. Overall, Summit provides a good education but can feel suffocating I suppose like any other high school.

I did my homework and noticed this school has a new principal who start this year in July of 2012. In the teacher's opinion, is she must better than the last? Hoping for the best, might move here next year. Going by the test scores and hope for the new principal, I'm rating a 4 star.

This school operates in a very loose atmosphere. The kids are allowed to come and go as they please just about, and miss school are every event under the sun, which compromises their learning. The principal calls teachers on the carpet for any and all student complaints, and gives very little support to teachers. He teaches the kids to complain to get out of work. The staff argues and competes with each other. The students seems to only do what they have to to get an "A" and nothing more. I would not send my child to this school.

Summit is not all it's cracked up to be. It's located in an affluent area of town and the students have a sense of entitlement. They are allowed to skip classes for numerous outside activities. The principal does not have strong leadership skills-does not support the teachers and lets the parents and students persuade his decisions. The teachers are excellent.
