What to Expect

Summit Public Schools is a leading public school system that equips all students to lead a fulfilled life. During your tour, we will do an overview of our history, the schools we operate in California and Washington, and our school model.

We will take a deeper look into our approach to teaching and learning — Summit Learning — which forms the foundation on which Summit’s successful schools were built, with its schools consistently ranking among the best in the nation. Historically, 98% of our graduates are accepted into at least one four-year college, and Summit graduates complete college at double the national average.

During your tour at Summit, we will provide you with:

  • A brief overview presentation of the history of Summit Public Schools and our approach to teaching and learning
  • A few classrooms to observe
  • Open Q&A with Summit staff

Tour attendees may look out for how students engage in their projects, what cognitive skills they are applying, and how teachers foster personalized learning in the classrooms.
