  • I Am Kelly Cano. Love this school, this is where it all began! The Teaching was a little bit easy but the way teachers would sit there and explain to you was the best.

  • This school sucks. They don't pay the teachers on time. My son's teacher (...) could care less about the students, while they are at the playground she just sits there with her stupid Ipod and lets the kids hit each other and call each other names. When you go to the (...) she is of no use either.
    One day a teacher attacked the (...) and drew blood. Nobody even called appropriate authorities. There are many students there who have severe behavior issues that the school is not able to deal with. And last but not least the school will likely close as of date. There is going to be a county meeting as to whether they are going to close the school or not.

  • I am displeased with the new Principal Dr.King.Many students in this school are trouble makers and bullies.This school doesn't have an active plan to excute when a student is being bullied..I just recently pulled my child out of Summit Charter..My child used to be excited about going to school,now she cannot wait until it is over.The teachers are no help also..I believe they are scared of the students.Some of the student there are violent and should be placed in another school,but they cannot afford to expel students due to the low enrollment.My child self-steem has suffered a huge blow..

  • There is no discipline in this school. Administration does not have the support of the board. Teachers are not paid on time. This school should be shut down.

  • I have 2 children in Summit right now. They have been there for the last five years. There were problems but everything is well now. We have a new principal that is just wonderful and all new teaches. We also have a new Board of Directors that is parent run. We are clearing up the mess that was made and the school is going great. Check out the new Summit. You'll like it

  • My child used to attend this school.Sometimes you may feel the grass is greener on the other side but sometimes it's not....This school have afterschool programs,many field trips,a sensory motor program,free transportation,and experienced teachers unlike the private schools....Which has no watchdogs...Yes this school had problems in the past but they are now correcting these issues....

  • My son attended this school in 2000, the day I pulled him from attending I walked in and found him locked in a closet. The teachers he had were not fit to teach snakes. The idea behind Summit is good the special area teachers were great, but it needed better staff and management.

  • "Orlando-area Summit Charter School must fix problems or close.
    Audit finds lavish spending by administrators despite heavy debt.The Maitland charter school paid four administrators more than $520,000 last year and, even though the school was deeply in debt, allowed lavish and uncontrolled spending by two of those administrators, according to an audit by the Orange County school district"
