My child loves attending Summit West Independent School. They have rules but they don't come across like "rules" in the public school we experienced. The children are treated like humans and as my child once said, "they treat us like real people!". They allow the kids to have their emotions but to be aware of them and be respectful of everyone. I loved watching all grades participate in projects together over the years. The staff is amazing and welcoming. You don't feel put off having to talk to them and they are very real and understanding. My child will always carry with him very fond memories of his school life at Summit West Independent School and has said many times, it has been his favourite school.
