    Since the new school principal was hired the school has gone downhill. The student feels as if she is taking away from the school. Assemblies are not engaging and are usually thought of as a joke. Not many students are involved with the school and new students feel as if it is a bad environment for making new friends. Every moment seems to be uncomfortable here. All the teachers are great people however the faculty (all but Holler) do not relate to the students and almost treat us as young kids instead of growing adults.

    I am a senior at Summit and have been here since Freshmen year. The education is engaging and interesting if you take A.P. classes but can lack charisma in standard classes. However the student body is somewhat arrogant and snobby. Most everyone is nice and approachable but most come from affluent families and are constantly feeling entitled. If you are not from a wealthy family it may be slightly difficult to fit in. The administration is inconsistent. We recently got a new principle who is very unpopular with the students. In the first months upon arriving she instated a strict dress code and began cracking down on the dances. Overall Summit provides a good education but can feel suffocating I suppose like any other high school.

    I did my homework and noticed this school has a new principal who start this year in July of 2012. In the teacher's opinion is she must better than the last? Hoping for the best might move here next year. Going by the test scores and hope for the new principal I'm rating a 4 star.

    This school operates in a very loose atmosphere. The kids are allowed to come and go as they please just about and miss school are every event under the sun which compromises their learning. The principal calls teachers on the carpet for any and all student complaints and gives very little support to teachers. He teaches the kids to complain to get out of work. The staff argues and competes with each other. The students seems to only do what they have to to get an "A" and nothing more. I would not send my child to this school.

    Summit is not all it's cracked up to be. It's located in an affluent area of town and the students have a sense of entitlement. They are allowed to skip classes for numerous outside activities. The principal does not have strong leadership skills-does not support the teachers and lets the parents and students persuade his decisions. The teachers are excellent.

    Administrative staff teachers counselors coaches are to lead by example providing a school atmosphere fair to all students however parent's income determines student treatment and the opportunities your child will be provided. Not a good life lesson for a developing teenager to be learning. Equality is a big issue here.

    Earned Oregon's top rating "Outstanding" on the 2009-10 Oregon Department of Education State School Report Card. Only 37% of Oregon schools earned the same rating statewide.

    I am a local family portrait photographer and I have been most impressed with the seniors from Summit that I have photographed. They come from hands-on families that are really involved in their children's academic extracurricular and social activities. The children seem joyful mature accomodating and well-adjusted. Keep it up Summit Families and Faculty!!

    Summit rocks! I love this school! sports are awesome and the teachers are great. I have a 4.0 And play lots of sports which tells me that my teachers have really shown me how to spend my time wisely. We have lots of clubs and a great student council that really tries to get us all involved.

    Pretty good school in a great area. I love attending this school. Once our field is completed our sports facility will be one of the best in the state. Great extra curriculars and teachers. Tardy policy and school schedule is a little inconvienient but still good.
