    "I am sad to see negative reviews about Summit. We have had such positive experiences. It is very family oriented and the staff works hard to foster positive, strong, learning environments often with kids who don't have always have strong family situations. The teachers/staff encourage learning beyond school and they will offer up great resources for parents to use outside of the school. The report cards are mandated by the state and apparently the person who said dismissal time is chaotic has never been to an elementary school, ever. I did parent pick up for a year when my child was in Kindergarten and they never leave kids unattended nor do they allow kids to run amok. We have always had immediate response from Doug Waltz regarding issues. He is always out in front of the school before and after school and he is willing to talk or to set up a meeting to talk. All of the kids know him, give him hugs, and he knows them by name which is amazing when you consider the number of children who attend this school. Finally, at the end of the day, if you are not willing to be a strong voice/presence for your children you are not going to be happy with any school your child(ren) attend(s)."

    "I have two children currently attending the Summit and one that went their k-6. I am not satisfied with this school at all. The grading scale is completely subjective to the teacher. The principal is not easy to communicate with. The school holds back students. In K my child was provided reading material by a title one teacher and her teacher told us it was "unfair" that we were receiving additional reading material and it was to stop. Everything about this school is unorganized. I would suggest that you definitely try to avoid Summit if at all possible."

    "Leadership, order, discipline and structure are lacking in this school. Upon dismissal, kids are left to tend to themselves, they storm out of the classrooms uncontrollably . No one is directing kids to insure they safely get to where they need to be (in terms of transportation)! Because there is no superisson during lunch,Kids share food- which is not good because the kids could be allergic to whatever they are sharing. The extended care program in very unorganized, kids just run wild, no one is helpin them with homework, they can freely open the doors- this exposes them to potentially dangerous situations! Not pleased with this school."

    "I have always found the teachers to be great! They are kind and enthusiastic about teaching. Many are young and don't have a lot of experience yet but everyone has to start somewhere. They are intelligent and for the most part organized. The school is well kept and always clean. I would feel comfortable leaving my child in a filthy place. The staff are always friendly and inviting. I feel safe leaving my child with them. I truly feel that they would do all they could to protect my child. If there is one complaint I have, it is that they have too many children per classroom. They need more teachers to take the numbers down to 20 kids per teacher in a classroom. I think that would greatly increase their test scores as children would get more one on one time when needed. But this is not really Summit's problem but the districts."

    "Summit is a fantastic school with great teachers who are friendly, enthusiastic, encouraging, and intelligent! The children enjoy beautiful, state-of-the-art, sunny, bright facilities that include lovely art/music/PE/library sections. We love Star groups - the ability for my son to be challenged by separating out the kids into learning ability groups. The teachers and support staff including Mr. Waltz are easy to access, fun, friendly, and willing to help/make changes for the better. My son has excelled in this school and he loves it. Class sizes are amazing! We are proud to be at Summit and I believe there is a core group of parents/students who feel this way - quite unlike the one star rating below . Apathetic parental involvement would be my one gripe about Summit. Be involved in all aspects of your student s life and they will be challenged/not bored. If they redrew the lines for this school it has a huge amount of potential but a lack of stronger students to balance out the not so strong students.I could go on and on about how much we like Summit and the positive experiences we have over the past four years. Overall, we give Summit an A+!"
