    "I've been with the school for 4 years. The school was great because the teachers care about each and every individual child and the community was tight knit. However over the last 2 years I have seen a significant decline. There is no leadership. Head of School does not regularly address the school community on various updates, issues and school curriculum, community events have pretty much disappeared and teachers are just maintaining. No one is sure of what the immediate future for the school holds and many are pondering where to go next. Hopefully a good group of people can hire a new head of school and be active on the board level to get this school out of it's decline."

    "We have been at Summit for over 6 years now and really appreciate the individual attention our child receives. The small class sizes allows for individualized instruction, not only because teachers can pay attention to each student's learning but also they can look at the whole person and tailor teaching accordingly. Practically all teachers know all students--not just in terms of their academic characteristics in their classes but what kind of persons they are in and out of their classes. Our child trusts adults because teachers trust her and convinced her that they can be trusted--which makes parenting easier."

    "I have been at Summit now for over a year after Rancho Solano in Gilbert closed last year. I toured charter schools, public schools and private schools for any school that would be similar since my kids loved it at Rancho. I'm so happy to have found Summit, it has a family feel to it and everyone is so friendly and helpful. While it is expensive I think it's important to give my kids a good foundation and love of learning if they are to excel in High school and graduate school. My kids love going to school every day and the teachers make learning fun. My kids love it better than Rancho and we will stay all the way until Eighth grade. My daughter is reading at three grade levels above and her math is a grade level above. I feel there is a great balance between academics and art, music and Spanish. Many of my friends think I'm foolish for spending money on a private school when we have so many great schools in Arizona, but we only have 18 kids in every class with 2 classes per grade level and they get so much more attention and one on one time from the teacher. I think that is priceless."

    "I have been sending my 3 children here for years with our youngest currently in PK. The PTO is ok. They lack accountability which has been going on for years. At Summit all parents are forced to pay dues for each child for the PTO. However funds are not spent for the preK and the younger K-4 students. Leadership can t make decisions and doesn't communicate them when made. This inability is because of the Country Club feeling that some parents report. It is true that prominent parents HEAVILY influence the decision making of the principal. The Administration also doesn't care about PK. The Pre-school is amazing and the teachers are doing wonderful things with those kiddos. The pre-school class rooms need an updating and Maintenance items are slowly taken care of. It s annoying because the school fund-raises constantly. People don t complain much because kids are only there for a year or so and then move on. But because I have now had my 3rd child going through PK I clearly see the lack of enthusiasm for this part of the school by the front-office. I do expect the leaders of the school to be the best of all the other school options."

    "Our three children are all new to Summit this year, and all are doing really well. Our children and my wife and I love their teachers. We are also very impressed with the academic challenges that the school provides and the way that it is presented to the children. All three truly enjoy school and look forward to the upcoming events this year. We couldn't be happier with the school and are so grateful that we have become a part of the Summit family."
