Summit High School continues to build an environment that focuses on student-centered learning while facilitating a culture of academic success. 

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.

“Engage, Elevate, and Support”SHS is proud to report a 97.5% 5-year graduation rate while leading most of Colorado in graduation rates.  As a result of student success, SHS has been named one of America's best high schools by U.S. News and World Reports as well as a GreatSchools College Success award.
