There is a great story by Summit Olympus’ own Community Teacher, John Levi in the Tacoma Weekly highlighting a recent shadow day for interested families.

Riley Molt is looking for a new kind of high school experience.

The ninth grader is hoping to make a change next year – he wants to attend a smaller public school that offers a personalized learning model that includes project based learning and a mentoring program.

He recently toured Summit Olympus High School in Tacoma with his mother, Jennifer Ressler. Riley had the chance to spend the morning shadowing another student and learning more about the public charter high school.

“I can’t wait for next year,” Riley said. “I really like the idea of self-directed learning. I’m excited about what I saw.”
