Summit High School continues to build an environment that focuses on student-centered learning while facilitating a culture of academic success. At SHS, “Everyone Belongs, and Everyone is Capable of Achievement.”
Students, families, and educators have a shared responsibility for the ultimate ability of their students to demonstrate proficiency in academic standards and to meet the expectations of a prepared graduate (SSD Graduate Profile). This includes social emotional competency building, completion of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Personal Project, career exploration, post-secondary planning, personal financial education, and ongoing demonstration of the SSD Graduate Profile.
As an International Baccalaureate school we encourage students to explore different ways of learning while understanding their individual strengths and limitations. Teachers and staff at SHS take pride in developing caring learners who positively reflect our school and community.
In an effort to cultivate student success, a variety of pathways exist to ensure postsecondary readiness for every child. Included is the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program, highlighted as the most rigorous academic pathway, a variety of Career and Technical Education opportunities aligned with relevant career clusters, as well as numerous concurrent enrollment courses allowing for earned college credit. Students may focus on one specific program or blend different courses together to create a meaningful learning experience that will ultimately prepare them for 21st Century success.
