We are Summit
Summit Schools is the only accredited, private, independent, non-parochial PreK-Middle School in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. For over 20 years our students have excelled because of our high expectations, our multi-sensory approach to teaching and learning, and our attention to the individual needs and gifts of each child. Families select Summit Schools for their children because they value personalized education, an educational approach that aims to customize learning for each student's strengths, needs, skills and interests.
Summit Schools is committed to preparing our students to work in an evolving, information-centered, global community of the 21st century. Enriching educational experiences, our attention to mindfulness, and our appropriate use of technology empower our students to affect positive change in our local community immediately.

"When I first came to Summit I was nervous, but students were nice and teachers helped me learn. I like having a small class and calm work environment to learn. We do projects that let me research, create, build, and learn how to solve problems in our community. I also love our homemade lunches, different learning opportunities like roller skating, yoga, swimming, ice skating, and after-school camps." – Sofia, Grade 3
