Battle Ground Public Schools invites the community to tour Summit View High School on Thursday, Feb. 2 from 3 to 6 p.m. Visitors will be escorted by current Summit View students, giving the public an opportunity to see the school in action at its new location in the CASEE C building at 11104 NE 149th Street, Brush Prairie. Students, parents and community members interested in the Summit View program are encouraged to visit.
Summit View provides an individualized learning environment that encourages academic and personal growth and prepares students for the challenges of the future.Their mission is to provide educational opportunities to students whose needs are not met by traditional high school programs.
“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.
