School Reviews

  • Recommended February 28, 2014 - This is my oldest son's 1st yr in Summit Academy Secondary High in Canton.Prior to that,he attended a public high school.My husband and I could not be any happier with this school! There isn't one single person at this school that doesn't have our son's best interest in mind.Everyone has been so helpful and kind,and the programs available are wonderful! Not just as far as academics,but for preparing our son for the real world as well.Our son loves his teachers,the principle,and all of the staff there.He is not angry in the morning when he gets up for school,and doesn't come home angry from school because he actually enjoys attending this school.He NEVER showed any interest in ANY after school activities before in his old school.Now,this year,my husband and I didn't know whether or not to pass out or cry when he came home from this school and actually asked us if he could join the basketball team!His grades are outstanding and we couldn't be more pleased.My only regret is that I hadn't heard of this school sooner!!!!! - Posted by Parent
