Initially, Summit Public Schools tried piloting a Station Rotation model of blended learning for math using Khan Academy. After a year of using that model, school leaders evaluated the data and realized they needed not only to blend face-to-face and online instruction, but to rethink the entire school experience. As a result, they pioneered a self-paced and self-directed learning environment in which they reimagined the roles of the students and the teachers, rethought and redesigned the learning spaces, and removed time-based practices that hindered personalized learning.
Everest Public High School, Summit Public School's second school, opened its doors in 2009 due to overwhelming demand for more Summit schools. Like other Summit Public Schools, Everest's mission is to prepare a diverse student body for success in a four-year university and to be thoughtful, contributing members of society. Summit's academic approach, which is fueled by a highly personalized blended learning model, has led to an impressive track record of success. Today, Everest is among the top public high schools in California, as well as one of San Mateo County's top 10 public high schools.
