    "Summit is a wonderful place. My children thrive in this school. They are challenged academically and are excited to attend school every day. Summit teachers care and treat each child as an individual. I love this school and would not think about leaving to attend any of the highly rated Kyrene Schools nearby. What could the school do better to really earn the 5 stars and be the top private school? Well, communication from School administration needs to improve. The Head of School needs to be sending out a weekly message to the community to show he is engaged and on top of it. The School should do a better job of keeping promises about the curriculum such as Morning Meetings. When we first toured the school all we heard about was how many opportunities the children had to be on stage during school wide morning meetings. Well this year they seem to be lacking. The Pre-school also makes many promises about their Online tool to view observations about your pre-schooler but these website is rarely updated. The school even bought IPads to make it easier to update these observations but still the website sits empty."

    "This school has become the center of our children's lives. Our eldest began kindergarten at a highly rated public school, only to be bored and unchallenged. When we changed to Summit, he flourished. The climate is dynamic, the students aren't stuck in desks all day, they work in groups, transitioning to all kinds of special activities not offered at other schools (Spanish, art, laboratory science, technology, etc). Personal character development is stressed almost as much as academics, learning to respect others as well as yourself, and to always do your personal best. My children are thriving, and are truly happy and excited to go to school each day. I never worry for their safety or happiness when I drop them off in the mornings, and they greet me with smiles and stories about their day in the afternoons. Bottom line, I couldn't ask for a more well rounded education for my children. You truly have to see it to believe it, as the motto says. I only wish my own elementary education could have been as wonderful as theirs, and I'm grateful to be able to give this gift to my children."

    "We are extremely impressed and overjoyed with Summit School of Ahwatukee! What our son has learned in just a short month is proof in the pudding as to how stellar their curriculum is. My son last year went to Kyrene Public School and would continually tell me how bored he was every week with school. When my son started this year at Summit School of Ahwatukee he said "Daddy, I love my new school and i'm not bored'. When you are here, you feel like this school is truly part of your family. I was also impressed with the lower number of students to teacher ratio in the classes at Summit. I also like the philosophy at Summit that there is no ceiling towards learning for each student which enables the students to achieve anything they want to which you will be hard pressed to witness at Kyrene Elementary Public School. I also enjoy seeing the respect that each student has for each other at Summit which is refreshing to see. You can physically feel the joy of students, teachers, and parents. This truly is a gift to my child and will set him up for future success."

    "We recently moved to Arizona and had to choose a school for our children. Both of my children were very much involved in the selection process which we began online. We visited every school in Ahwatukee and the surrounding area. It was important to us that our children felt happy, secure and safe. Summit School of Ahwatukee promised everything we needed. It exceeded all of our expectations and continues to do so. Our children were immersed in a new and very different curriculum and they thrived in all subject areas and Summit School of Ahwatukee did an exceptional job in preparing for high school. This school offers a well rounded education where the academics are excellent with each class being delivered by teachers who have a passion for teaching. Their energy and enthusiasm develops a lifelong love of learning in the students. The students are encouraged each day to do their personal best. Our children have developed into confident, respectful and well rounded young adults thanks to the dedication of Summit School of Ahwatukee."

    "The middle school teachers are an extremely impressive group of seasoned professionals. We are so grateful to have them in our son's lives. He has been at the school since preschool and is now in 8th grade. We moved to Arizona so he could go to this school. The art and design program is internationally recognized. Summit is an extremely nurturing environment that requires high level thought of the students. The school create leaders and thinkers. Many of the students are also serious athletes in various club programs."
