I am sad to see negative reviews about Summit. We have had such positive experiences. It is very family oriented and the staff works hard to foster positive strong learning environments often with kids who don't have always have strong family situations. The teachers/staff encourage learning beyond school and they will offer up great resources for parents to use outside of the school. The report cards are mandated by the state and apparently the person who said dismissal time is chaotic has never been to an elementary school ever. I did parent pick up for a year when my child was in Kindergarten and they never leave kids unattended nor do they allow kids to run amok. We have always had immediate response from Doug Waltz regarding issues. He is always out in front of the school before and after school and he is willing to talk or to set up a meeting to talk. All of the kids know him give him hugs and he knows them by name which is amazing when you consider the number of children who attend this school. Finally at the end of the day if you are not willing to be a strong voice/presence for your children you are not going to be happy with any school your child(ren) attend(s).
