I transfer school three times during my high school career. This school is my last stop. There are many reasons behind this. First, the education that is provided to the students are superb. Before coming to this school, I barely know how to write and the teacher taught me how during his spare time. At a regular public school of some sort, spare times for teacher would be at home or going shopping. Second, I was able to create a bond with my classmates. Our class had barely 30 students so getting to know them and their life was not that hard. Lastly, the connection with the teachers. I texted my teacher about a clownfish, class, and colleges, he was gladly to respond in about ten minutes even late at night. At other schools, teacher usually don't give out their numbers for purposes but at this school it was different. Due to these facts I have fallen in love with this school and decided to settle down. I am now a graduate of Summit and will never forget the memories [both fun and sad] that it have given me. Please ignore the claims about carline, PTA, and other non-education related claims, we don't go for school for those things, we come to school to gain an education. Dos.

Commitment from teachers and staff to the education portion of School Life is amazing. The Road to College focus threads through all grades and field trips to colleges began this year, in our son's sixth grade year and our first year here. Communication outside that of directly with teachers, for lack if a better word, sucks. Parents are not spoonfed info and have to be resourceful. This is unfortunate, but considering the quality of education he is receiving, a burden I will muddle through. Sports programming is awful. They are moving from A to AAAA this coming year and given out experiences with sixth grade, I expect it will be a mess. Our son is an intense athlete, but that's not what we care about. We will peruse club sports to fill in the gap. Homework is intense, but he found a groove and achieved A/B honor roll the entire year. The new component of school, when constrasted to mainstream education, is that teachers are passionate about their subjects and seek out ways to transfer this passion to their students.

My school is Summit International Preparatory school. I feel it is an excellent school because my son has made tremendous progress since he started at Summit. He had speech and comprehension problems when the school year started. Now, he is speaking clearly and his comprehension is so much better. I owe it all to the work his kindergarten teacher Mrs. Ray and I have done as a team to get him to this point. All schools have their challenges (carline, PTA, etc.), but if that is your only problem with the school, then you really don't have any "problems". Academics are the most important thing.

Summit is an excellent school with the most dedicated teachers around. My expectation is to see growth in my children each year. Other parents posted complaints about disorganized school functions, PTA, carline, etc. I don't send my kids to school for those things. I send them to get an education and they are receiving an amazing education. One of the strengths of Summit is the amount of time the school takes to train their teachers and the ability to let under-performing teachers go. My kids have had life-changing teachers at Summit. Summit's expectations for their students are high. If your child has been at a different school for years, it can be an adjustment for them to keep up with homework and grades at first. I have three kids at Summit and the younger two have only been to Summit. I've watched families complain about the workload and pull their kids out. My kids rarely have more than 20 minutes of homework. I think that is because they are used to the rigor and have learned to to their work at school when given an opportunity. My sixth grader has 45 minutes every day to to do homework at school and rarely has to do any at home.

This is our first year at Summit. Educationally, it's been fine. My son has learned to read well and do simple math in kindergarten. Far, far, far too much homework is given to kindergarteners. I have been very disappointed with the amount of screen time, as pointed out by a poster below. PE should not be a platform for movie time. Operationally, the school is a disaster. Functions are poorly planned and executed. Parking is extremely inadequate. The carline is an absolute nightmare. Many of the specials teachers and administrators of the primary school have inappropriate expectations for behavior of kids this age.

Extremely unorganized. I don't think anyone there has any knowledge on how to run a school. I stopped going to any meetings or festivals because it's so ridiculous how No one knows what they're doing. If your child goes to the nurse, you don't get told about it. Hardly anyone follows the dress code but you Will get a phone call for having even nude nail Polish on. They lie about having smaller class sizes. My daughter has 24 students in her 1st grade class and there's No teacher aid. They show movies in art, music, and even PE Alot. They aren't educational ones either. I didn't choose this school for that, she can watch movies at home. I chose it so she could have a bit of a higher education. Teachers are great but can be disorganized too, I think the way the school is ran is to blame for that. I will let my daughter finish the year but this was a huge regret.

The school is poorly ran. The organization for events is always a disaster. For example, grandparent's day breakfast and the awards assemby. I also called one day because my daughter was going to miss school and they said that I don't have to call them if she will miss. I found that a bit odd or like they weren't concerned. However, I love, love, LOVE my daughter's 1st grade teacher. She is amazing. She's very dedicated to teaching and helping her students learn. I love the weekly email she sends out letting the parent's know what's going on for the week.

My son started going there this year and he loves it. The teachers are nice and are willing to help you with any question you might have. At first I wasn't sure about the school because I couldn't get any one to return my calls at first but I am glad that I stayed on it.

I have a 9th student and a 6th grade student at Summit. Kids at this school seem to have a tight bond. Teachers work amazing hours and the dedication is refreshing. Teachers are also always available to the student till 9 pm by cell phone. Curriculum is advanced and expectations are high. Positive atmosphere. A little unorganized, but inspected with the amount of stuff they try and fit in.

I never had a chance to find out about the school. My son was accepted and when I asked to have a tour of the school before going further, I was told they didn't have time for a tour. They politely said the adminstrators were too busy admitting other students. Guess that decided it for me. My son won't be going there if there isn't any more effort made than that to accommodate the parents.

Everyone who is saying bad things about this school is wrong maybe its your kid who does not work hard. I go to school here and my teachers are great the teacher there actually make school fun. i don't like learning but with the way they teach i just don't want to stop learning!! I love all my teachers and classmates. And parents that say that this school is not good then first look at your child and then say things about it because your child does not want to learn and you are blaming the teachers and the school. Everyone this school is great and i I give this school a 100!!!!!!

This is our second year at Summit and I couldn't be more content with the academic results. Luckily, my children are small (1st and 2nd graders) so they got to experience important skills early on. During the summer, my Kindergartener was able to read chapter books thoroughly and my first grader was telling time and working with currency, Most importantly, their self esteem and attitude demonstrate a sense of maturity at such a young age. The staff is friendly and maintains a profressional attitude at all times. Parent involvement can be better.

This school was the worst school that my child has EVER been to. The teachers just don't care. Two of my child's teachers didn't even have an education and they were teaching! He used to be a straight A student and fell behind a year from being in this school. Please do not make the same mistake as we did. I do not recommend this school to ANYONE.

Our first year at summit has been a good one. My son's kindergarten teacher has been great. She genuinely cares and is easy to contact if there are any questions or concerns. I agree that Summit is not perfect, but what school is. For those who posted complaints - did you ever bring these concerns to the director, or did you just sit and complain. If you are a parent with a concern about a teacher, it is your duty to let the director know - this school is here for your student, stand up for them. The school requires that each family do 40 hours of volunteer work at the school, but when I went to put in my 40 hours, I only saw the same few parents there every time. The people who complain the most are probably those who do the least. It takes a whole village to raise a child - don't expect to send you child to school and have the school do everything for you. Things that are challenging about the school: Hours: Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri ; 8:00am-3:30pm Wed: 8:00am-1:30pm No Buses: To pick your child up you must wait in a carline, and some of the parents are always trying to cut in line. Lack of Parent Involvement: It seems like a lot of the parents are not involved.

What a complete disappointment this school is. The left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, new teachers with out education degrees. No consistency from the teachers and no accountability. No true extra cirricular activities, sports or clubs. Teachers are demanding of the kids but don't deliver themselves.........................very sad that they have many families fooled.

It is important to note that those test scores represent the first graduating class. Some of the students scored very high on the SAT and some did not. That is why it is called an average. Texas overall had a low average SAT. Those students came to the school starting as 9th graders and all have been accepted to a 4 year schools. You have to start some where and the expectation is to see even higher SAT scores in the future. $6.4million in scholarships and grants is not a bad number for 22 students. What other school is the area can give you that?

My son hated school because he was not challenged in Public school. Here the teachers expect more from the students but also help them achieve those high goals. Everyone is involved from there Advisory teacher, the the principle, to the clubs leadership. Thanks, Summit

Summit has lofty goals but is far from reaching their goals. Go to the TEA website and you will find their SAT scores are well below average as well as their college readiness scores. Teachers and administration lack common sense. Their moto states that students are responsible for their own learning, which is the truth. Teachers are grasping at straws and do not teach well. Students are expected to teach themselves. If you are not a native Spanish speaker, your child will have a disadvantage in ranking and AP classes. Students are expected to forgo lunch, bathroom breaks, and sleep even with an extended school day. From experience, I would not recommend this school to anyone.

Summit is a great school. We've been a Summit family since it opened. The school recieved an "Exemplary" rating (highest in Texas) based on the results of required State testing. My 5th grader participated in the Robotics club with 6th and 7th graders. My 1st grader enjoyed Soccer and got PLENTY of math and science lessons, homework and projects. My 4th grader needed extra reading and math help and reicieved extra tutoring before and after school. The Administration makes an effort to inspire the teachers and students to excel. Certainly there are areas needing to improve, but each year it gets better and better!

My middle daughter had an A avereage at the local public school so I shouldn't have worried. I sat down to help her with her homework and she could barely get through her directions. I asked her teacher about it and she said my daughter was fine.Then a friend of mine told us about SIP. I went there with my questions and they had her tested right away. Turns out she has a learning disability and SIP does everything they can to support her needs.4 yrs later all my kids go there and I will never send them anywhere else.

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.
