The 3 Summit Not For Profit organizations are funded by New York State, school districts, grants, and wealthy donors.

Summit Camp was founded in 1969 by Mayer and Ninette Stiskin - The camp was rampant with abuses, even allegedly committed by their own founder. SEE HISTORY

Summit Queens was founded in 1968 by Hershel Stiskin, later taken over by Mayer Stiskin who eventually handed the reigns to Howard Adams and Judith Gordon. While some instances of physical abuse and no instances of sexual abuse have been reported at the school (there are no beds), there has been many reports of emotional abuse to both students and staff from management. Tuition is "free" as New York State carries the heavy tuition fees funneled through school districts.  SEE HISTORY

Summit Nyack was founded in 1974 by Mayer and his wife Ninette Stiskin.  The tuition is paid for by school districts and New York State. The facility is a residential treatment center where day students also attend.  Reports of sexual, physical, emotional, and medical abuse are rampant.

WELCOME TO THE SUMMIT SCHOOL - A letter from Richard Sitman full of absolute nonsense as can be seen HERE

Since 1968, The Summit School has been giving children with learning and adjustment challenges the attention they need to develop their individual strengths and talents. Summit has created a therapeutic educational environment that respects individuality and meets the needs of each child.

It is the mission of The Summit School community to help children with special needs acquire the skills to achieve success in higher education, job placements, and interpersonal relationships. As members of a supportive and nurturing community, our students maximize their strengths, develop self-esteem, and become contributing members of society.

Our learning environment is warm, friendly, and conducive to individual growth. Summit students enjoy coming to school because it is a place where they can develop a positive sense of accomplishment and self-worth.

Working as a team with parents and students, the Summit faculty develops a unique plan for each student. This road map identifies the best approach for the student’s educational and social goals, changing over time to adapt to the child’s progress. The Summit School encourages parents to be involved with all aspects of their child’s education. Summit respects and values parents’ understanding of their child’s needs. They become part of our interdisciplinary team working together to ensure their child’s success.

We feel fortunate to have the opportunity to lead this wonderful school with its rich tradition in providing extraordinary special education services to children and adolescents.
