The Summit Preparatory School's Full Profile



The Summit Preparatory School says

The philosophy of The Summit is that each child has his or her own individual gifts and talents. Our responsibility is to help identify each child's gifts to reach their highest potential.

We also believe that each child develops at his or her own pace. Learning is not a race to see who gets there first, but an individual process in which children must be nurtured, supported, and challenged to do their best.

We believe learning is natural and should be an enjoyable experience.

We will help our students experience the JOY of learning and the satisfaction of accomplishment.
