Summit High School students have racked up some impressive academic achievements lately. U.S. News and World Report ranks Summit as one of the best in the nation. Looking at test scores, the school was put in the country's top 5% of high schools. Bend La Pine Superintendent of Schools says these recognitions are proof the district is doing its job. “Obviously, as a district we're really focus on college readiness. That’s one of our top goals. Under Lynn's leadership it's a little bit ahead of our other high schools, but not by a long ways. Summit Principal Dr. Lynn Baker is retiring after this year after forty years in education. He’s been Summit since 2004.
