Welcome to Summit High School, Home of the STORM!

Welcome to Summit High School and the 2019-20 School Year!

As Summit High School rounds the corner toward its 20th year of operation, we are renewing our commitment to community, culture and safety. Last year we set a goal to improve attendance, improve freshman on-track rates, create a vibrant learning community and engage students and staff in conversations around equity.In each of those areas we made significant strides, especially with attendance.

As we lean in to the 2019-20 school year, we will continue our focus and improvement around the same topics as last year. While we may at times sound like a broken record, we will continue to push the importance of attendance. Your child’s presence in class, every day is the best method we have to improve social, academic and emotional connection to the entire school community. Attendance is low tech, incremental and easily measured.It keeps you and your student in the main flow of the school culture and allows teachers to know your students in multiple ways.

Another on-going target for Summit is school and community engagement. To us this means that students have opportunities to engage as well as the desire to do so. No matter what allows students to find their voice, identity or community, we are interested in providing that platform. We always hope the abundance of current opportunities welcomes kids to participate, but we are also open to any new ideas students or mentors have for connection.

Finally, as you have no doubt seen or heard, all schools in Bend-La Pine are seeing some remodeling to incorporate new safety measures. At Summit we started the year with our new entry way in full operation and we have since distributed photo ID to all students with the expectation that students wear these ID during the school days. Safety is as much emotional as it is physical and so we are also adding personnel to address student’s emotional well-being. We invite comments and questions as an ongoing process for safety improvement.As with any change we make, we can’t get better unless you share your ideas with us.

As the principal at Summit, I am inspired everyday by the students and families we serve. I look forward to another great year and hope to see you in the building helping me learn and celebrate with our great kids!
