We hope you enjoy your time visiting our school website. Summit Intermediate is one of two intermediate schools in the district. We educate fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students from the Nixa community. Summit is located on the east side of Nixa on N. Cheyenne Road. Our current enrollment is approximately 525 students served by nearly 50 staff members.
The vision of Summit Intermediate School is to establish positive relationships between adults and children and to inspire a cooperative effort among family, school and community which motivates and encourages learning within a safe and secure school environment.
Summit Intermediate staff wish to reach students in varied ways. Through this endeavor we form a very important bond with students. We believe in the importance of parents and teachers working together as a team to recognize and cultivate student talents, while celebrating their differences. Curriculum, instruction, and assessment are guiding factors in educating your child and staff members will actively engage all students in the learning process through critical thinking and problem-solving.
“Summit, The PEAK of Success!” is our school slogan. This year we will continue our journey with Positive Behavior Intervention Support and Character Education. To share our school-wide expectations for behavior, all classes are taught effective lessons on how to Practice Safety, Encourage Respect, Act Responsibly, and Keep Learning. These expectations keep students and teachers accountable to help each other learn and be successful from the classroom, to the playground, to the cafeteria and beyond. Students learn how to properly communicate with their peers and teachers in normal daily and challenging situations. When students are caught modeling expected behaviors, they are recognized with a signature. Individual students and classes are able to redeem signatures for various character confirmations such as Eagle’s Landing, Student Store, Choice Day, Snow Cones with the Principal and much more. Ask your student about PBIS and encourage them to carry out their successes in all areas of their life!
