2018 Summit Community Survey Results

Every three years, The Summit undertakes a community survey as part of the accreditation cycle for the Independent Schools Association of the Central States. Feedback from the survey helps administration and faculty measure how well we deliver on our promise to bring out the best in intellect, character and leadership of every student. Parents surveyed in October 2018 gave The Summit high marks, and in many cases (denoted with a + mark), their ratings were significantely higher than the benchmark for other independent schools.

Q: The main reason I send my child to The Summit is...

A: The caring community and culture is unique and hard to find anywhere else. It is something that has been cultivated for many years and is not able to be duplicated easily by other schools. The kids are loved by everyone (parents, staff, administrators, teachers), and nurtured and challenged in just the right way to create thriving, confident, purposeful adults. The staff is entirely dedicated to helping each student become the best version of him/her self. We never tire of witnessing the deep, authentic commitment to our kids that this community cultivates at every opportunity.
