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.
Summit Public School: K2 (Summit K2), a 7-12 school, opened in Fall 2014 and serves students in the southern region of the West Contra Costa County School District. Summit K2 opened with a class of 100 7th graders and will add a grade level each year. Like other Summit schools, Summit K2'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.
