What is Summit View High School?

Summit View High School is an alternative accredited high school. The program is designed to provide flexibility to meet the unique needs of our students. As a mastery-based program, students meet one-on-one with teachers in their offices, rather than in a traditional classroom setting. During this time, students will complete labs, take tests, ask questions, review homework and receive new assignments. The majority of the students’ work will be done off campus.

Summit View is an incredible place to be for several reasons. First, as you can see from the statements above, we get to think a little out of the box in how we help students learn. Our curriculum is adapted to each student and the teachers excel in explaining content in 1 on 1 settings. Next, we get to spend our time focusing on the student learning. We don’t offer sports, or assemblies, or even have bussing. We don’t get distracted from the main reason we are here, which is to help prepare kids for what is next in their lives.

At Summit View we are not going to be ‘victims’ and will not focus on things that are out of control. We will be relentless in getting students to progress in their education. Students are taught and encouraged to persevere through challenges. This is seen in our R.I.S.E. acronym, which is shared frequently (Responsibility, Integrity, Success Mindset, Excellence).

Student Expectations

  • Students will be assigned two sessions per week to attend school and meet with teachers.
  • Students are expected to meet with each teacher twice a week to turn in work, get help on assigned work or take assessments.
  • All courses are designed to be completed in 12 weeks as opposed to 18 weeks at a traditional high school. Students will be enrolled in 4 courses at a time, as opposed to 6 at a traditional high school. This allows students to focus more effort on fewer subjects.
  • Our students are held to the same graduation standards as a traditional high school so the diploma they receive is the same as the diploma every other student receives.
