Welcome to Summit School, the Home of the Condors.

Summit is a bright center of Upper Ojai, and the smallest school in the Ojai Unified School District family.  Summit is beautifully-situated on three acres of land, affording our students lots of space to run and play. Our facility is used as an after-hours meeting space for the local 4-H in which many of our students participate.  

Our community-centered environment offers unique opportunities to build on individual student skills and to broaden academic achievement.


Summit has a caring staff, with teachers and support personnel who are dedicated to helping students reach their full potential.  I invite you to make an appointment to visit our campus by calling our office at (805) 525-3038.

Letter from the Board and administration addressing the safety of our students and, in particular, undocumented immigrant families.

Click to review the letters in both English and Spanish that were mailed on Friday, April 21, 2017 to secondary students' homes and placed in elementary students' backpacks.  The text was written in response to statements made about undocumented immigrants during the presidential campaign and soon after the election. About half of the school districts in the County have adopted such positions speaking directly to this issue.

Summit School Mission Statement

The mission of Summit School is to prepare our students for a continuing education and for successful social interactions in a unique, supportive environment.  Summit school has a long tradition of  providing a child-centered, educational program focusing on the education of the whole child and the recognition of each individual child’s strengths. Our unique size allows for a supportive and tight-knit community, and offers students the opportunity to develop academically, to reinforce respect of self and others, and fosters an appreciation of the arts.
