Summit Public School: Olympus will open in the fall of 2015 with 120 9th graders, growing one grade per year to a full high school by 2018. Summit Olympus will serve the diverse communities of Tacoma, particularly students and families in the South End, East, and Hilltop neighborhoods. Summit Olympus will provide a personalized learning experience to each and every student, giving all students the opportunity to achieve their academic goals regardless of their previous preparation and background. Summit Olympus is excited to match a proven academic model with the unique needs of students in Tacoma, as other Summit schools have done in new communities in California. Summit Olympus leadership will spend almost two years getting to know the community before the school opens its doors, soliciting community input on how to translate Summit's success in California to the unique needs of students and families in Tacoma.
