I've had my son a summit for a couple of years and I really have mixed feelings I think the teachers do pretty good with the kids and my son does well academically. I just don't like the bullying the swearing the stuff that just gets ignored. I feel like the school just lets kids get away with to much because they have problems they don't discipline enough and I don't know that my child is being challenged. I'd recommend this school if child just can't thrive anywhere else if they can maybe look elsewhere

My son who has ADHD will be a senior this year and has been at Summit-Parma since 5th grade. I can't imagine where he'd be right now if not for this school! Thank you!
Wonderful environment for my daughter with Asperger's Syndrome.
My daughter attended SAP for 3yrs & it was great for her self esteem but not her academics. I urge parents to remain informed & follow their children's education. Be sure that the material they are presented is grade level appropriate and that IEP's are being followed. I have experienced problems with academic content standards not being presented for the appropriate grade level. Do your research. This school is currently in academic emergency status! Our children with ADHD do need to be taught in more of a hands on manner that is why I choose SAP. If our children are being taught in this manner then why do the test scores not reflect that? The expectations for the children are too low & the children take advantage of that! All the children have so much more potential than what they are being given credit for by this school.
Best School for Children with ADD or ADHD This school KNOWS & Understands how to teach these children. I was VERY pleased with this school.
My son struggled or years in Public School- barely passing and being made to feel life a 'bad student'. Now he feel much better about himself and we don't battle over grades. He is getting good progress reportsw and has very small classes and all the teachrers now and reaaly work with him He has a lot of friends at school- plays basketball after school. he misses scholl sports but plays with the recreation department. I think he is happy and learning and thant's what it is about. He usually tells us daily what he learned at school that day.
