Summit Tahoma

Enroll at Summit Tahoma

In 2010, with so many of our children falling through the cracks, hundreds of San Jose parents rallied together to find a public school option that ensured our children would have the opportunity to go to college. These parents discovered Summit Public Schools, a network of high-performing public charter schools that serve Silicon Valley’s diverse communities. The parents committed hundreds of hours to doing whatever was needed to ensure Summit could open in San Jose. In the fall of 2011, Summit Rainier and Summit Tahoma opened their doors to 200 diverse San Jose students and now serve over 750 students in East and South San Jose. Around half of these students come from low-income families. This educational option is changing the trajectory of their lives and preparing them to be contributing members of the 21st century workforce.

Summit Tahoma’s charter was authorized by the Santa Clara County Board of Education. Our accomplishments include:

  • 99% of 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 Summit Tahoma graduates accepted to 4-year colleges including CSUs, all of the UCs, and private schools such as USC and Yale.
  • In 2017, and and 2018, US News & World Report ranked Summit Tahoma as one of the nation’s Best High Schools, and Washington Post ranked it as one of America’s Most Challenging High Schools.
  • A world-class teaching faculty from the nation’s top teacher preparation programs, including Stanford and UC Berkeley.
