Summit Public Schools

Summit Public Schools is a leading charter management organization serving Silicon Valley’s diverse communities. It operates four high schools enrolling 1,200 students. Summit’s mission is to ensure that every student has the opportunity to not only attend - and succeed in - a four-year college or university.

Summit’s flagship school, Summit Preparatory Charter High School, opened its doors in 2003 and quickly earned the reputation as one of the best public high schools in the nation, according to national rankings by Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report. Since its founding, 96 percent of Summit graduates have been accepted to at least one four-year college or university.

Overwhelming community demand for Summit schools led to the opening of Summit’s second school, Everest Public High School, in the fall of 2009, as well as Summit Public Schools’ Rainier and Tahoma in San Jose in the fall of 2011.

Summit believes that every student is capable of being college and career ready and should have access to high-performing 21st century schools that prepare them for success in college, career and life. With the mission to transform Silicon Valley into the epicenter of education innovation, Summit is growing to serve 6,000 students through 14 schools. Summit’s schools form the nation’s first College Ready Corridor, transformative initiative spanning from South San Francisco to San Jose that will utilize the best of business and technology to create the blueprints for America’s future schools.
