About Our School
Summit Hall is a collaborative and respectful community of students, families, and staff dedicated to developing the potential of all students in order to achieve academic excellence. The Summit Hall Elementary School mission is to educate and nurture our students so that each child becomes an individual of character committed to effective effort and prepared to face the academic challenges of middle and high school. In our community, the students and their families bring a wonderful mix of cultures, languages and experiences that enrich all our lives. Our goal this year is to have staff, students and parents work as partners to build on our phenomenal academic accomplishments.
We hope that parents will be able to come to school and want be involved in any way they can. Our collective efforts are what make the difference and contribute to our success. We hope you find this site useful. Please let us know if there are other services or links you think we should add. I look forward to seeing all of you and celebrating our students' accomplishments with you during the school year!
We are a CHARACTER COUNTS! school located in the wonderful city of Gaithersburg, Maryland.
Our school, built in 1971, is home to our more than 600 students in grades Head Start through 5th. We are also fortunate to have one of our county's original Linkages to Learning sites at our school, combining county government agencies and MCPS programs to assist both our parents and students. We have more than 75 very talented staff members dedicated to making our students successful. Summit Hall was named for the large, antebellum Desellum plantation, which became one of the first commercial turf farms in the United States and is now part of Gaithersburg's sprawling Bohrer Park.
