I went to school here for all my grade school years and kindergarden. This was one of the best schools I have ever been to and I would deffonetly recommend this school for your children. This charter school is really GOOD! And that's all I have to say. There is nothing else the nurse and principals and teacher were all nice my 6 years at Summerville were the best. No bullies at all and this school has top security. Has two days out of the week with PE. And I really did love it I got strait A's they did not pressure me at all but did help me become a girl who absolutely love school.
