In 2000, A Group Of Parents From Silicon Valley Asked:

“WHAT HAPPENED?” WHAT HAPPENED
TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL?
AND WHAT CAN WE DO TO FIX IT?




WHAT IS SUMMIT ABOUT?

A Next Generation School

Summit serves as a model for how students drive their own learning to be successful.

WHAT DRIVES US?

Our Students' Success!

Summit schools were founded on the belief that every student can be prepared for success.

WHO WE ARE

In 2000, hundreds of parents and community members came together to reimagine the American high school. They wanted to create an innovative and replicable model for secondary education.
They envisioned one that achieves the promise of providing a high quality public education to every child, regardless of family circumstances or background.

In 2003, Summit Preparatory Charter High School was born. It did not look like, act like or perform like a typical high school – as a result, all Summit students were succeeding.

From there, the vision and the work continued. Overwhelming community demand led to the opening of Summit schools across the Bay Area. The need extended beyond high school, resulting in Summit's first 6-12 school opening its doors in 2013.

Today, Summit is a leading charter management organization serving the Bay Area's diverse communities. Through seven schools serving close to 2,000 students, we are realizing the vision of Summit's founders over a decade ago. In fall 2015-2016 we are excited to open our first two schools in Washington state. 

Summit Public Schools is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that will continue growing to provide a high-quality public school option to more communities.
