Why Everest and Summit?

Twelve years ago, a group of parents in Silicon Valley came together to re-imagine the public high school experience, and Summit Public Schools was born.

Today, Summit Prep and Everest are public school options for highly-motivated, college-bound students who thrive in a small, nurturing environment.  Our teachers are highly-qualified, passionate, and caring professionals who are dedicated to knowing their students and helping each one to grow as students and as people.  Our graduates emerge not only college-ready, but as thoughtful, contributing members of society.
