Summit Middle Charter School

 

 About Our School

Summit Middle School, founded in 1996 as the first charter school in BVSD, provides a rigorous, academic curriculum that promotes high levels of student effort and academic achievement. As a multi-dimensional, public, school of choice, Summit is chosen by many families because they seek a hard-working, rigorous academic environment; they value a keen focus on learning skills, study habits and personal accountability at the middle-school level; they value a well-rounded education that facilitates personal discovery in academics, the arts, community involvement, and personal engagement in resolving local and global issues; and they believe in fostering personal integrity, leadership, teamwork and critical thinking. Summit is also the only middle school in BVSD to have been named a U.S. Department of Education’s Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, the highest national award given in education. Summit offers core subjects of English, science, math, social studies and world language, along with a variety of elective classes. At Summit there is no ceiling on learning, and creativity and scholarship are central to our school culture. Summit is a unique, vibrant, safe learning community where students are nurtured and challenged.
