About the organization
What if all students graduated high school with the knowledge, skills and habits they need to lead a fulfilled life? This is the question that guides our mission at Summit Public Schools.

We operate 14 schools serving over 4,500 students in the Bay Area and Washington state. 100% of Summit graduates are college-ready and Summit graduates complete college at double the national average.
We need exceptional, diverse, and mission-aligned teachers to join our team to help prepare our students for a fulfilled life. Join us!
The role of the Expeditions teacher is to empower students to discover and deepen their passions, as well as serve as a mentor to a group of students they will follow throughout their time in middle and high school. We believe that connecting to one’s passion is crucial for success in college and a career, as this allows students to make better choices about “best fit” colleges based on an understanding of the course of study for possible careers. They can begin college with a career goal in mind that is connected to their passion, and can immediately apply their decision-making and self-direction skills to continuously set and achieve goals. With their own passions and fields of study as expertise, Expeditions Teachers execute this vision by doing the following:
Summit Expeditions teachers design and teach a high-quality, challenging, project-based curriculum that guides students towards explorations of potential passions.
Summit Expeditions teachers facilitate learning experiences which lead students through deep exploration of fields of study connected to potential majors, hobbies and careers.
Summit Expeditions teachers design and guide students through real-life experiences in the field, through guest speakers, field trips, and other connections to community groups.
