Testing Day Details:


Drop Off: 3rd-8th graders should arrive, like a normal morning drop off between the school buildings, between 8:15-8:30. The first test begins at 8:45. No students will be allowed to begin testing after 8:45! Students will be directed to their testing classroom upon arrival. 

We are completing these tests over the course of two days. Students will have snack breaks throughout both days (not a formal lunch). Remember to send students to school with non-messy snacks and a water bottle.


Pick-Up: Parents should arrive to pick up their students at the following times:


4th-8th graders @ 12:15

3rd graders @12:50

4th-8th graders @ 12:30
3rd graders @ 1:00

Students can be picked up between the buildings where they will be supervised by teachers until parents arrive. Students need to check out with their testing teacher before leaving.

Testing is free and offered to Summit's 1st-8th graders. Students taking the ITBS through Summit must take the test for their current Summit grade level.


Students must register to take the ITBS test, via the form below, by Sunday, February 27th at 11:59pm. We apologize, but we cannot accommodate additional students after this date. 

1st-2nd Graders: These students take the ITBS test at home under the guidance of a parent. Summit orders the materials for these parents to use, parents return the materials and Summit submits the tests for processing, providing the parents with results in early summer. Parents pick up testing materials the week prior to testing, and must return them by Friday, April 15th. Please fill out the form below if interested.


3rd-8th Graders: The ITBS will be administered to 3rd-8th graders on Thursday, April 14th and Friday, April 15th at Summit by the Summit staff. 

High School Students: The PSATs and SAT will be given at Summit on Wednesday, April 13th. Go here for more info and to sign up.
