Summit has a complete program, featuring foreign language (Spanish and French) beginning in 6th grade; four levels of English; math from pre-Algebra through Geometry and Algebra 2/Trigonometry; inspiring science and social studies courses; motivating classes in health and physical education; and creative electives in music, the arts, and technology. Summit is a caring community of peers who take on leadership projects, are active in school and community service and take pride in being scholar-athletes. Summit's rigorous curriculum is designed to prepare students fully for demanding courses in high school while it also fosters skills in self-directed learning, creativity, and life-long passions and curiosities.
