Summit Everest

Enroll at Summit Everest

Opened in the fall of 2009 with a founding class of 9th graders, Summit Everest serves the diverse communities in Redwood City. We believe that every student is capable of college success, that it takes character and academics to achieve that success, and that serving others is part of the joy and responsibility of success. These three elements are evident in everything we do, from project time to basketball practice — for every student, every day.

Today, Everest is among the top public high schools in the nation. In 2015 and 2018, US News & World Today, Everest is among the top public high schools in the nation. In 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, US News & World Report ranked Summit Everest as one of the nation’s Best High Schools and Washington Post ranked it as one of America’s Most Challenging High Schools. Last year, 100% of Everest’s graduates were accepted to at least one four-year university, joining the ranks of many successful Everest alumni.

Summit Everest is authorized by the Sequoia Union High School District as a tuition-free school that is open to all students. As a public school, enrollment is open to students in grades 9 through 12.
