Welcome to Summit Everest! We are a free, public charter high school serving students grade 9 to 12 in Redwood City area, California. There are no admission requirements and all students are welcome. Our mission is to prepare diverse group of students for success in college, and to be thoughtful, contributing members of society. At Summit Everest we believe 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.
Summit students receive consistent, relevant, and personalized support seamlessly integrated into their school day as they drive towards their academic and personal goals. Every Summit student has a dynamic Personalized Learning Plan and is able to access all of the learning tools and resources they need at any time.
Summit students are self-directed learners. From the day they arrive, Summit students are encouraged and coached to develop the different facets of self-directed learning – Challenge Seeking, Persistence, Strategy-Shifting, Response to Setbacks, and Appropriate Help Seeking.
All Summit graduates meet or exceed four-year college entrance requirements. All Summit students demonstrate competency in college preparatory course work in five core subjects and the visual arts.
Every single student is known by every faculty member, and teachers continuously collaborate to ensure students have the feedback and practice they need to become empowered learners. Every Summit student has at least one adult mentor and coach, who individually supports them to set goals and make a plan to achieve those goals.
