It was such a breath of fresh air walking into an environment with caring individuals. My son will be starting at this school after I had been trying to get him out of another school for months. I look forward to a fabulous year.

Regarding Summerville Advantage Academy: I highly recommend this school to anyone willing to invest in their child's education. It is a state of the art learning environment staffed by caring teachers and overseen by highly professional administrators. The curriculum is rigorous and deep. The events and activities are fun for all, times we will remember for years to come. We especially loved Halloween. This was our child's first school, and our hearts will always belong to Summerville. Thank you so very much. You guys are amazing! In kind, R.D.P.

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.
