"Where can I pursue my full potential?  
                            Where can I prepare for college and life?"                 

Our Beginning:
In 2010, hundreds of San Jose parents rallied together for a public school option with a path to college.  They discovered Summit Public Schools, a network of high-performing public charter schools in Silicon Valley.  The parents committed hundreds of hours to planning.  In the fall of 2011, Summit Tahoma opened its doors to 100 diverse San Jose students.  

Our Success:
Summit Tahoma is a unique public high school in South San Jose.  We provide a college-ready, personalized learning environment for 300 ambitious, diverse students.  100% of our graduates from 2015 and 2016 were accepted to 4-year colleges.  We are tuition free and open for enrollment in grades 9 - 12.

Our Mottos:
This is our school.
College for every Thunderbird.
Leave no Thunderbird behind.
Everyone grows everyday.

    THE POWER OF EXPRESSION: A 12th grade Political Activism project, a 10th grade Genius project, and the Advanced Acting performance

    Students have reinvigorated our campus the past couple of weeks with the power of their voices: public interest campaigns, new recycling bins, public art, and outstanding performances.  The inspiration continues with 9th grade Persuasive Speeches next week.

    Parents, your voice counts too!  We truly value your feedback.  Please take 5 minutes to complete our short parent survey before Friday, June 2.  So far just 22% of our families have completed it.

    While many students are working hard to complete their courses, we're also pausing to celebrate the end of the year with a number of fun school events.  Next Friday, June 2 from 3:00 - 7:00 PM we transform our campus to "Summitchella", a music festival with good music and good vibes.  We have a full lineup of student performances.  The event is free and all students and families are welcome.  We'll have food trucks so bring money if you'd like food, drink, or desserts.  (Parents could also stop by the food trucks when they come to pick students up.)

    There is a lot to celebrate as we wrap-up the year!
