Everest Public High School 305 Main St, Redwood City, CA94063 An offspring of the Summit Prep Charter High School, Everest is currently is its second and is attended by…More 9th and 10th graders. As Summit Prep continued to grow, the Board of Directors and faculty felt that increasing the school's size would compromise the purpose of the small charter school. Instead, Everest was created in 2008. Each grade has about 100 students and continues to expand once the first graduating class receives their diplomas in 2014. Everest High is a public school, but students must apply by filling out an application. The simple application does not determine who is accepted. This is done by a random lottery system to reflect the diverse applicant pool. Everest uses the cohort modeling, where every student takes the same classes and aren't separated into advanced classes vs. lower level classes. The school is temporarily located in an office building and will tentatively move in the upcoming year.

One hundred percent of Summit Prep students pass the California High School Exit Exam and 96 percent go on to a…More four-year college.

Summit Prep was featured in the acclaimed movie "Waiting for Superman," in which the movie tracks five students through their educational journey, one of which is a Summit High attendee. Each grade level is limited to 100 students and the maximum classroom size is 25. Each student has a dedicated mentor, who mentors a maximum of 18 students and meets with each for 10 minutes a day and a two-hour session once a week. Mentors develop Personalized Learning Plans (PLP) with each student to stay on track to get accepted to college.
