Community

Everest’s vision for meeting our mission to prepare students for college, career, and life involves the support of our parents and community members. This is our school, nuestra escuela, and the contributions of every student, family member, and faculty member make our school stronger. Our most successful families embrace our values and beliefs, and actively engage in modeling our six core characteristics: respect, responsibility, courage, compassion, curiosity, and integrity.

We encourage parents to participate in school events for approximately 30 hours per year to meet other families and work together to support our entire community. These volunteer opportunities have fostered personal relationships between families that have led to a virtuous cycle of support and accountability for all of our students. We are so proud of how our community network continues to fulfill our mission to be a community supported program that holds high expectations for all students and families. 

Fundraising with the Everest Educational Foundation 


All Summit Public Schools are committed to operating on the state funding allocation. This is a non-negotiable, and we are extraordinarily efficient in "doing more with less." The modest revenues the school receives from the state of California do not cover our basic operating costs. For this reason, the Everest Educational Foundation (EEF), Everest's fundraising foundation, is asked to raise $200,000 a year to bridge the funding gap. 

Our success is possible with the generous gifts and donations we receive from our parents, alumni, and community supporters every single year. We continue to depend upon the financial support of our community members to provide our top-notch educational experience to our current and future students. Your donation is an important investment that ensures an equitable college-prep high school experience for all students.

As a mission-driven organization that places students at the center of every decision, we will never sacrifice the quality of our academic program as a result of budget cuts. We rely on our community members to come forward and financially support our mission to prepare all students for success in college, career, and life.
