  • An innovative and integrated curriculum, coupled with small class size and high teacher to student ratio, enables students to experience academic success.

  • This instructional plan incorporates best practices, which are based on current research, and is re-assessed on an ongoing basis.

  • At Summit View, students are given the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential, prepare for post-secondary education, and experience success in the workplace.

This school has been the best for my son. His self esteem rose after the first week! The teachers are well aware of how to help these kids succeed with new technology and different teaching techniques. The art classes are terrific. The yearly musical is amazing and there is a verity of after school sports.
