I have found all the students at Summit West treat each other like family. If someone is having a bad day it is not uncommon to see an older grade student helping a younger grade student. Very nice to see a family setting like this! The class sizes are so great and my child gets all the help he needs and doesn't have to fight for help! It is interesting to watch the dynamic in the school and how everyone helps each other and respects each other, no matter how old or what grade they are in. I have seen older kids share treats with the younger kids, or read to them or play boardgames with them. The atmosphere is so friendly and welcoming.....even with rules.
