How We Got Our Name

High School Name Recommendation   April 19, 2010

Chairman Anderson asked the WCS Board of Education if someone would like to make a motion regarding naming the high school. The Naming Committee had submitted three names to the Board for approval. Summit High School was selected as the name for the new Spring Hill area high school.

Ms. Moore who was a member of the Naming Committee moved to approve the motion. The motion was seconded by Ms. Mills also a member of the Naming Committee.  Ms. Moore did address the significance of the name. 

"We wanted the name to represent an ultimate point," said Page High School Principal Andrea Anthony, who suggested the name.  "With this being a high school, we wanted it to represent a pinnacle of education."

How We Became the Spartans

The Summit High School mascot was chosen through a protracted process.  The Spring Hill and Thompson’s Station communities were afforded the opportunity over a two-month period to nominate their mascot of choice through the Summit High School website.  After tallying the nominations, the Rams, Spartans, and Stallions, received the highest nominations.  There were 50 different mascots nominated!  After much publicizing of the final three choices which included providing renderings on the website, there was a two-week period for voting.  It was a one vote per household for all families in the Summit High School zone and feeder pattern.  With over 350 families voting, the Spartans received over 50% of the vote!  Go Spartans!

Course Listing Established 2011

While the State of Tennessee requires certain courses be successfully mastered for students to receive a diploma, the process of selecting course offerings is much more in-depth.  The Williamson County curriculum team along with Drs. Anthony (principal of Page HS), Campbell (principal of Independence HS), and Farmer (principal of Summit HS) convened early in the Fall of 2010 to begin a dialogue regarding what courses should be offered at Summit in August 2011.  Additionally, site visits were made to schools around the county and state to gauge implementation and effectiveness.  The administration and faculties at Page High and Independence High also provided student enrollment data for particular courses so that students’ interests were taken into account.  There also has been an on-going community input link on the Summit HS website that has been considered.  There are, however, obstacles such as the physical plant and funding that directly affect course offerings.  With these factors in mind, the following is a list of POSSIBLE course offerings for the first year at Summit High School.  Parents and students must remember that there will be continual growth over at least the next five years.  With each passing school year a more diverse course offerings list will emerge.

Birth of a Legendary Class of Athletes 

Summit High School was unanimously voted in as a member school at the August 16th TSSAA Board of Controls meeting.  The TSSAA membership will begin with the 2011-2012 school year.   Summit High School will offer all TSSAA sanctioned sports at the varsity level beginning with the 2011-2012 school year.  The TSSAA anticipates Summit High will be placed in Class AA, District 12 in football, basketball, baseball, softball, and volleyball.   Cross country, golf, soccer, and tennis will be placed in District 11, Class A-AA.  Track will be in Class A-AA middle.  Bowling will be in District 8.  Individual wrestling will be in Region 6, while dual meet wrestling will be in Region 7.
