Our Principal

Welcome to Summit High School!

As we move forward with a school year like no other, our focus will still be to ensure:

  • every student is finding a way to feel connected,

  • every student is being challenged by new learnings and experiences,

  • and every student knows they have someone on staff to support them.

Summit High School is part of a greater alternative educational center.  We share a campus with Horizon Virtual School and Horizon Home School, Horizon Opportunity school for 9th and 10th graders and portions of the district’s Special Education program.  Summit High School offers educational opportunities through a continuation High School and independent studies program which is available for grades 11-12.  Families opt to attend Summit for a variety of reasons.  In many cases, the traditional comprehensive schools may not be a fit for their particular educational needs. The educational programs are rigorous and relevant in accordance to California state standards and to prepare the students to be college and career ready.  Our school is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).

Our teachers and staff are dedicated to providing excellent educational experiences for our students.  The programs include traditional classrooms, flexible learning, distance learning and blended learning.  The teachers at Summit are uniquely qualified to work with students who choose Summit as their school of credit recovery.  We are committed to providing the finest educational opportunities for our students and families.  Our highly qualified and talented staff make this possible.

The strongest predictor of student success is the quality of their teachers.  Summit teachers take PRIDE in creating caring relationships with their students.  Active participation from parents, educators, community members and business partnerships will help ensure we develop highly successful students.  While there are structured opportunities to develop these relationships with all stakeholders, we encourage you to get involved with the school.  If you are interested in volunteering or looking for ways to make positive contributions to the school, please be encouraged to step forward.

I look forward to serving our students and families.  Our students deserve the finest education possible.  Summit is a place where your child can feel whole and enjoy their education experience as they work towards graduation. If your child has struggled with their education experience, Summit is the place to regain the desire to get up in the morning and accomplish great successes.  If you have questions or comments regarding our program or your student, please do not hesitate to contact us.

On behalf of our staff, Welcome to Summit High School.
