“Some students simply need a different experience than what the typical high school provides,” said Renee Andrews, a counselor and teacher at Summit View. “Many of our students work full-time jobs, have health issues, have kids of their own or family needs to attend to that make the traditional approach to high school difficult for them to be their most successful. The program was created with these students in mind, and we’re proud of their success.”

 

Summit View students complete most of their assigned work independently off campus and then meet with teachers at Summit View at least once each week to turn in work, take tests and track academic progress.

 

Summit View serves high school students up to 21 years old who have unique and diverse educational needs. Independent students, working teens, at-risk students and teen parents are able to complete diploma requirements through a one-on-one instructional model and prepare for life after high school. Get more information about Summit View High School on the school’s website at svhs.battlegroundps.org or by calling (360) 885-5331.
