Summit is a fantastic school for students and families. It consistently has more students make all-state band than any other in the area. Our Academic Decathlon team has placed highly in the state contest for many years. We have strong athletic and especially academic programs with teachers and staff who genuinely care about the school. We have a wonderful diversity of students, both ethnically and economically, like the real world, but everyone works together well. There are issues like at any other high school, but I do not believe that there is a better place for learning not only "book work" but also about the real world and how to work with those people who may be different than yourself. Summit was only 1 of 11 Tarrant County high schools to make the recent US News rankings of "Best Schools", no other Arlington or Mansfield ISD school made the list. Generally, negative things people hear about Summit are from those who do not go there or who look at the ethnic makeup and make assumptions. Summit is an Awesome School. Summit Love!

Love it... Everyone at the school seems to do their own thing not causing many problems with other students. I also like their dual credit classes they offer to get in college hours.

Mansfield Summit is a fun school! Everyone there just seems very chill haha. I came from Bowie High and moving here to MISD was a HUGE difference. They offer so much more programs and activities. Also Summit alone has more clubs to offer than some other high schools I visited before attending here. Another thing is the sports at this high school is just great. I plan on trying out for football next school year and maybe even Cross Country hahaha if I can handle it.

To the parent bashing me personally for my son's locker being broken into ( learned this later) and having IPAD stolen. I am paying this back, despite it being an economic burden. My son was not at fault, if anything I think it was interesting that the gym and locker were both locked, and it was still stolen-- and I was responsible .For something that have been their fault by the Contract you keep referring to.. BTW are you a Mansfield ISD employee? If so, then you should know as a textbook it should be waived in my situation. Interestingly enough that has been wiped out of the new "contract" for 2013/2014. By the way, you do not seem folksy when you write shoulda when telling someone "like it is". I can freely admit that my education was sporadic due to unfortunate child hood circumstances, but even I know that is improper grammar. In short, stay away from this school. I am removing my AP student at the end of this year. I will be leaving MISD. Good luck to those of you that stay.

In the year 2013, the only year I have had the "pleasure" to attended Summit High School, it has been the worse academic year ever. I moved from a nice community in California to a nice community in Texas in hope that I would still be going to a nice school. Summit is the exact opposite of what I had in mind, the kids smoke and fight all year long and instead talking in civil tones to one another they yell as if one is the other's parent. The children disrespect the teachers all throughout class and the teachers, more than likely, won't do anything about it. And as if the attitudes the children carry towards the teachers weren't bad enough now they give each child an iPad, the iPads were their (the school district's) worse idea by far. iPads are stolen all throughout the year and are a hassle for the teachers who have to yell to get the children's attention away from the iPads, in hope that once they have their attention they MAY be able to teach their planned lesson. Over all this school is an academic travesty.

Oh okay. My review was deleted again. Why you ask? Because the truth hurts. Apparently you can't warn everyone about this "school" if it doesn't benefit them. There are a ton of issues that people aren't allowed to know I guess. I never named names or used obscene language yet the truth is deleted. Okay Summit. Parents: Look more into this place before you send your poor child here.

To parent that has a child w stolen ipad first of all sorry-that stinks! But I suggest u opt out of something u know u can'tafford it. At each informational meeting option for your child NOT being assigned an ipad has been offered. Your child can do text books instead so shoulda considered that option-however you still are responsible for paying if they are lost /stoeln. By high school they must learn that they don't leave something laying around or it gets stolen-sad but just truth. My child has had $ stolen from her purse-her mistake as she didn't lock it-I didn't blame school. Not trying to sound harsh but if your student would have had his ipad with him at all times or LOCKED in a locker like they have been instructed to do it could not have been stolen. Tax payers shouldn't pay another $500 for the ipad YOUR child lost. Imagine if you got by with not paying & if everyone could just say they lost an ipad & sale or keep knowing they could lie & say they can't afford to replace. My advice-can't afford insurance then don't get ipad nobody else's responsibility-You also signed clear document about this & agreed to it as you yourself stated. Good luck :(

This is a great school; if your interested in being part of the solution, then they are happy to let you assist. The teachers work hard to do their best for the students. At any school, you will find rebels, but they also have excellent AP and Dual credit classes.

Have had a very bad experience with this school and its only my sons freshman year...bullies fill up this school...the kids dress like hood rats for the most part..my son has complained that the kids smell like smoke...I really wish I could take my kid out of this school...

My son has gone to summitt for the past four years. In the past year or two it has really gone down. It's obvious that a "certain" type of kid and parent attend this school, and it is really turned this school into the type of place you might not want to send your child. I have another son starting Summitt next year and from what my senior says about the kids and the classes, I really do not want to send him there at all. If you live in the attendance zone and can transfer out- DO. I do not think it will get any better, and if you do stay dont say I did not warn you.

My children constantly have to be subjected to teachers allowing children to attend class smelling like weed. Teachers don't really care about an education for the children. Just push the kids along whether they learn anything or not. These kids are our future leaders and they don't have a proper education. This is a very bad school. Constant food fights, fights in halls, inadequate restroom facilities. Unsanitary conditions. Staff has 'given up". The school lets the kids get away with too much. Do not send your child here.

Very disspointed with the teaching skills these teachers have. They are not concerned at all with teaching these kids, just passing them along in the system. Also, staff allowing children to boo a student the school sponsered for make a wish foundation. Also, at a pep rally for the young boy, the students were allowed to dance, act, and dress Inappropriately in front of this child. No staff member put a stop to this. boo a make a wish child that was at the school.

My older son graduated Summit this past May 06'... and my younger son is a freshman this yr. Honestly, we love it! Throughout the past years, when my older son attended, our experience was always a positive one. He was blessed w/ excellent & caring teachers... and the principal is super! Honestly, when we originally purchased our home in the MISD and we found out Summit was our home school, I was bombarded w/ different opinions(some good, some bad) as to what we should expect from Summit. Let me tell you... PLEASE do not believe speculation, rumors or gossip about this school. After experiencing Summit ourselves, I can now tell you... it's a wonderful school w/ a great staff, but most importantly, a super atmosphere for your child. I hope you enjoy Summit as much as we have in the past and as much as we will in the future.

Currently being a student at Summit High School, I have to say I'm real disappointed with it. I had to learn the hard way that this school is not the type of school you should send your child to. A few of the teachers I've had really did help me out, while a few others was completely opposite. I can't say that I'm impressed, I'm just completely disappointed with the quality with this school. The couselor I have really is helpful and she did help me out with a few of the problems I've been having. But, my assistant princible is a completely different matter. He completely ignored my request to see him. All in all, this school isn't one to go to.

My son began his high school years here. He will be entering his sophmore year. We moved from East arlington to be in MISD district.It has been harder academiclly but the teachers that he has had have been great in helping him catch up from his earlier years in a different district. Counselors and Administrators have all helped.

Tough school/district to enter into during mid-year. I found out at the end of the school year that my child would not receive credit for a class that was taken the first semester, yet passed the final? Nonetheless, my child's counselor was helpful in providing options to achieve this lost credit. My child has had a few things stolen from him at this school - so leave your valuables at home if possible.

So far so good, we moved from Boise, Id. in the middle of the school year and my daughter loves it. Staff very helpfull in helping us get credit for all her classes in Boise. Property taxes are alot higher here than else where in Texas but you get what you pay for. Money well spent, almost as good as a upper class private school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
