Four Summit high schools--Summit Prep and Everest, located in Redwood City as well as Summit Tahoma and Summit Rainier, located in San Jose--were recognized nationally as some of the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report in May.
The U.S. News rankings include data on more than 20,500 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on student performance on state assessments and how well they prepare students for college.
Summit Prep was ranked as 136 in the nation, 16 in California, and 47 among charter high schools nationwide. Everest was ranked as 212 in the nation, 31 in California, and 72 among charter high schools nationwide. Both schools earned a gold medal.
Further south in city of San Jose, Summit Tahoma was ranked as 266 in the nation, 43 in California, and 87 among charter high schools nationwide. It earned a gold medal. Summit Rainier, also located in San Jose, was ranked as 777 in the nation, 129 in California, and 164 among charter high schools nationwide. It earned a silver medal.
Summit Public Schools operates eight public charter schools serving middle and high school students in the San Francisco Bay Area. This year marks Summit’s 15th anniversary. Making the U.S. News list is highly coveted and comes on the heels of announcement that 100 percent of the class of 2018 was accepted to college.
