About SCE

summit cove elementary building front

Summit Cove Elementary is an innovative school by encouraging children to be active global citizens through transdisciplinary inquiry-based learning and focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. 

At any given time when you enter the recently redesigned Summit Cove Elementary the first sound you might hear is drilling and loud, excited children. You have just walked into the STEM space. During a typical day students are exposed  to design thinking, coding and sharing on a global scale. Or if you take a peek, some students are building robots, or sewing for a “client”. This is just a sample of the learning, collaborating and connecting that happens everyday here in Summit Cove. We are also well grounded in literacy and math development and social-emotional learning.“Excel, Engage and Explore”With an excellent staff, commitment to helping every child succeed and strong parent support, our school's goal is to ensure that all students excel academically, emotionally and are dedicated to be globally minded learners. We believe in meeting the needs of ALL students and providing the most enriching, positive educational experience possible while caring for the whole child.

Summit Cove Elementary is the hub of the community. The school serves the neighborhoods within Summit Cove, Keystone, and Montezuma; approximately 250 PK-5 students
