""Summit School provides a challenging curriculum within a caring environment to help students develop their full potential."
The school must provide an environment that is physically and emotionally safe for children.
The school must provide appropriate stimuli for children's intellectual, aesthetic, physical, emotional, moral and social development in order to help them grow optimally.
The school must recognize and respond to the differences in children, their developmental timetables, their needs, their innate and distinguishing characteristics and aptitudes.
The school must help children develop healthy self esteem and respect for their beliefs, values, talents and achievements while they learn to value others.
The school must give children opportunities to care for other people and for the physical environment, within the school and in other settings.
The school must emphasize learning by doing and lead children to be effective in individual, cooperative and competitive activities.
The school must prepare children as they grow to assume increasing responsibility for their actions and inactions.
The school must work closely and harmoniously with students' families.
The school must cultivate its constituencies, keeping them well informed and actively soliciting their support.
Summit provides experiential learning at every grade level, and it is often these experiences that students remember most. We incorporate the arts, physical education and character education into the academic program. Visitors to our campus say they notice the warmth, eagerness and enthusiasm of the staff and students. Summit is a place where students grow intellectually, emotionally and socially and where they gain self-confidence, learn concern and respect for others and develop an understanding of global responsibilities.
