On behalf of our SkyHawk faculty and staff here at Summit High School, I would like to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year! Whether you are a returning SkyHawk or new SkyHawk, we encourage you to become an active participant in our campus community. We are extremely proud of our exemplary and rigorous academic course offerings. At Summit High School, our faculty and staff work tirelessly to foster a culture of high expectations, top quality academic programs, and a commitment to continuous improvement. This year’s theme at Summit High School will be “SOARING HIGHER.” This year our faculty and staff will be engaged in implementing Common Core State Standards, expanding our Advanced Placement course offerings, as well as utilizing research based instructional strategies that yield higher levels of student engagement, learning, and critical thinking.
Our continued success is contingent on a collaborative and committed effort from all of us (Faculty, Staff, Students, and Parents). I invite parents and community members to become involved in our parent committees, Coffee with the Principal, Parent Workshops, and our Parent Center. With your involvement we will continue to work collaboratively to ensure the best educational outcomes and experiences for your children.
Summit High School’s Orientation dates (Business Days) and the tentative date for Back to School Night are listed below. During Orientation, students will receive important information such as; class schedules, textbooks, and ID cards. (Freshmen Orientation goes by last name).
Please note that our first day of school will be Thursday, August 7, 2014. Our last day of school will be May 28, 2015. Our regular day schedule begins at 7:40 A.M. and ends at 2:30 P.M. It is extremely important that you commit to arriving everyday ON TIME! Being punctual and being in school every day will ensure that you get the very best education here at Summit High School! Enjoy your summer, be safe, and we will see you on August 7th; “SOARING HIGHER” through hard work, commitment, and respect.
