Overview, Mission

Summit School is founded on the belief that the education of children is the shared responsibility of families, schools and communities. We strive to provide a high quality, student-centered education program designed around compelling topics emphasizing the integration of the arts, science and technology. Our learning environment will provide for multi-age grouping in a collaborative community that celebrates children’s natural curiosity in their quest for knowledge, wellness and service opportunities on their journey to the summit.

Summit School is a public school of choice in the Central Valley School District. At Summit School our instructional model based in EL Education which was born out a collaboration between Harvard Graduate School of Education and Outward Bound. We welcome you to look at the expeditionary learning school model as presented in the following website. Following that are a few other websites from schools which are affiliated with this national award winning organization. We hope you are as impressed with this school design as we are here at Summit School.
