Introducing the Summit Learning Blog!

Summit Public Schools is ecstatic to unveil the Summit Learning blog, the new home for stories and insights from the Summit Learning community.

Over the past two school years, we’ve collaborated with thousands of students, parents, and educators at hundreds of schools to reimagine education for all students. Through the Summit Learning Program, comprised of more than 300 schools, 2,700 teachers, and 56,000 students in 40 states, we’ve witnessed countless school transformations, watched teachers flourish as leaders and mentors, and seen students harness their full potential to set and reach goals that will serve them for life. The free program gives schools the tools and resources they need to implement and tailor the Summit Learning teaching and learning approach in a way that’s right for their individual communities.

Through these collaborations, we’ve uncovered stories worth sharing with the greater education community. Summit Learning schools around the country, from California to New York and Ohio to Texas are equipping every student to live a life of fulfillment. These schools are utilizing 1:1 mentorship, real-world projects, and individualized pathways — self-directed learning plans through which students set goals and consume content in ways that are best for them — to engage all students in a personalized approach to learning and teaching.

We are proud to launch the Summit Learning blog to tell the stories of schools and educators across America who are implementing Summit Learning, including use of the Summit Learning Platform, our comprehensive curriculum, in-person professional development, and ongoing support. Our blog will feature:

  • Teacher and school leader tools and resources for enabling a personalized learning environment
  • Community-contributed stories and reflections from students, teachers, principals, and education thought leaders
  • Evidence-based best practices and actionable insights
  • Resources for and by Summit Learning families and parents
  • Partner school spotlights and insights
  • Summit Learning news and updates
