U.S. News & World Report named three Summit Public Schools’ high schools among the top in the nation, awarding all three with gold medal distinctions. Summit Preparatory Charter School was ranked the 21st best school in the California and Everest Public High School was ranked 24th–putting both in the top 0.8 percent of schools in the nation. Summit Tahoma was ranked 67th in California, or in the top 3 percent of U.S. schools.
Congratulations to our colleagues and students in California for being ranked in the top high schools in the nation. This honor is a result of the hard work and dedication of the teachers and faculty to provide each and every student with the education best suited to meet their individual needs and to prepare them for success in college.
With our proven model, dedicated faculty, families and students we are on our way to replicating this success in Washington state. According to 2015-2016 end of year results we’ve already seen the following progress in Tacoma and Seattle:
• Founding ninth grade students more than doubled the national average for growth in reading, and more than tripled the average for growth in math, putting Olympus in the top third of schools in the nation in terms of math growth, according to the nationally normed Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment.
• Sierra’s founding ninth grade students outperformed the national average by 20 percent in reading and more than doubled the national average in math, per the MAP assessment.
Summit Public Schools are open to all students at no cost and provide a high quality, public education choice to our communities in Seattle and Tacoma. To enroll visit www.summitps.org/enroll.
