About Summit Shasta

U.S. News National Best High Schools 2019 Badge

Founded in 2013 after a group of parents approached Summit Public Schools about opening a Summit school in their community, Summit Shasta is a free, public charter high school located in Daly City, California. Summit Shasta serves a diverse group of students from nearby Peninsula communities including South San Francisco, San Bruno, and Pacifica. There are no admission requirements and all students are welcome.

In 2017, Summit celebrated its first graduating class. Since then, US News & World Report has continously ranked Summit Shasta as one of the nation’s Best High Schools. In 2020, Summit Shasta celebrated 100% of its graduating class being accepted to a university or college.

The Summit Difference

Our promise is that Summit students will be prepared for success in a 4 year college. But beyond this, Summit students grow as happy, kind, independent and curious young adults prepared with the habits and skills they need for success in life.

Summit students spend their days solving real-world problems and building the skills of self-direction, collaboration and reflection – critical for college and life success. Our curriculum is based in proven learning science and supports development of the whole child.

We founded our inaugural school, Summit Preparatory High School, in 2003. Today, we are proud to operate some of the best public schools in the country serving diverse communities throughout California and Washington states.
