This school is great. Its got a full history with being open for 100 years right here in Ojai. I find that the teachers care what is going on with your child. the staff is very nice and helpful. the only drawback is that there isnt really a GATE program here running. Which for the kids that need the challenge would be over the top with all the other areas of greatness here. they host outdoor family fun nights which makes it nice to get to see people in a different light so to speak .they love taking things outdoors and getting the kids going history events projects Halloween talent shows plays spring hunts . the school is just fun and when its fun kids like it and will learn faster and are more likely to want MORE. they also have a strong PTO group and host the Local 4H group meeting at the school. overall its very well rounded.

We moved to Ojai from the east coast this past summer. I researched schools online before choosing to send my son to Summit. It got a "10" rating from this site last time I checked and it sure has lived up to its rating! (I'm not sure why it isn't rated right now.) My son is in first grade having chosen to accelerate him past kindergarten and he's thriving academically. His teacher is amazing! She modifies the work to challenge every child in the class which is kindergarten/first grade. I don't know how she does it. The principal is amazing! I can't say enough great things about this school! In my opinion it's every bit as good as the fancy private prep school he attended for preschool last year. Send your child to Summit! You won't be sorry!
I've worked as a substitute teacher at Summit and I am very impressed. I am working on transferring my daughter from Mupu School to Summit.
