    "This school is unique in it's approach to learning. We believe that every student learns differently and the teachers give us many different options when working on projects and learning concepts."

    "The Summit School student body represents a significant range of cultures, ethnic backgrounds and religions. I would struggle to find a more diverse playground for my first grader in Springfield, Missouri than that of her current class. I also have found that the smaller class size (18 for lower school K-5) fosters a family like bond between the kids. The students know each other well and they offer each other support and criticism like a brother or sister might. I have found our children to be very blind to the ethnic/racial diversity in their classes."

    "The Summit offers a totally unique to the area education experience. Students are challenged to their highest potential daily in all subjects through individual and class instruction. The Summit works to build students proficient in creative thinking and solution seeking strategies, group dynamics, communicating their ideas through written communication and public presentation. As a professional in Fortune 50 company, I know these skills are inherent to all future success. I love that the kids are building this vital foundation. Daily Spanish language and integration of foreign language into mainstream topics and classroom logistics is impressive. Music program is amazing and very inspiring for young ears. Our kids enjoy identifying instruments they hear in popular songs and both have new interest in playing. I also really agree with the apparent philosophy that the 7 hour school day is basically enough time for kids to focus on their regular school curriculum. The Summit offers lots of additional resources for kids interested in after school work, but required homework is minimal. Our kids have time after school to enjoy a after school theater or music mini class, read a book and both participate in sports or dance without being burdened with hours of homework. The Summit is a young school - just 10 years old this year. The faculty has been very solid and consistent but the administration and leadership has changed over time. The Summit head of school, Rob Gronniger, started in August of 2014 and brings 25+ years of global education background to the Summit. He has a strong sense of the organization seems to be a good fit for the school. I am excited to see the benefits of his leadership in coming years as the Summit grows to reach it's full enrollment potential."

    "The Summit has excellent teachers. They have a progressive teaching style and curriculum with tremendous knowledge of the latest methods in education. The school offers teacher development opportunities for the teachers throughout the year. Plus, they self-educate and share information with the other teachers at regular meetings. They have great communication skills and teach in a way that is appropriate and makes learning fun and interesting for each age level."
