South Summit offers no drama classes. They have a very nice theater and even a "Drama Room" but neither are used to teach drama. Any students that want to learn drama must meet after school but are restricted to less than two hours and not every day (There are no such restrictions on the sports programs). Students participating in the theater group are frequently mocked by other students, their costumes and sets are not able to be locked up during the school day and are often scattered and ruined. By not teaching theater they are missing out on a way for students to learn to work together with others to combine their expertise in several disciplines into one united project. For example, theater teaches physics, geometry, algebra, shop, painting, writing, history, drafting, reading, speech, choir, electrical, computers, band, graphic design, social studies, dance, multi-media, lighting, costume design, project management, and English just to name a few. It also teaches collaboration, discipline, and confidence.

South Summit High is a very poor academic school. There are teachers who literally assign word searches for homework. The teachers are more concerned with sports than they are with providing a solid education. The mathematics and science programs are a joke, with no true preparation for calculus, deductive logic, or analytical thinking. The English programs are even worse (see word search comment above). The History classes are the only things near redeemable, but even these are not worthy of preparing a teen for even the most basic introductory university courses.

South Summit is the best school in the state! It is full of friendly people and kick butt sports! Almost all the sports teams place in state every year.

The high school seems to be an extended middle school. The lessons are not hard, and my child has had less homework over her high school years than my elementary child. Its a great school for sports but not for academics or arts.
