Summa International Schools (SIS) is an education management organization that specializes in ​personalized learning implementation that is inclusive of all learners.  We believe in practitioner-based leadership that models instructional expectations in the classroom, with proven results.  Schools that serve diverse student bodies require highly skilled leadership, and here at SIS, we recruit and retain strong professionals who care deeply about the quality of their work. 

As an experienced general and special needs educator for the past 9 years, I have experienced first hand, the benefits of personalized learning within a 21st Century classroom.  Scholars can grow 3 years or more in one school year, if we are implementing a highly differentiated classroom with fidelity.  At SIS, we believe that excellent instruction across classrooms creates true equity for our scholars.  

SIS will be home to private, public, and home & nature schools because we believe that the style of the school changes with the scholar, but the level of rigor and quality instruction remains the same. As colleges and universities, SIS seeks to host a diverse body of students to allow for equitable education for low income students, along with scholarship opportunities.  With vision, we embrace our journey and power ahead.  

Join us as we expand our team and help educate the children of the world.  We are not only committed; we are ready.
