High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Sumner Academy of Arts and Science, is a public college preparatory school that continues to prepare urban students for high level university work. The academy is located in Kansas City in Kansas. Sumner Academy opened in the fall of 1978 at a time when increasing diversity, poverty levels and decreasing performance on test scores were widespread community concerns. While no longer being bound by a desegregation order, Sumner continues to excel despite many challenges.
One key factor that significantly helps in maintaining Sumner Academy’s rigorous academic standing is the International Baccalaureate, IB Program, introduced in 1987. The academy offers 20 different IB classes and over one third of the faculty has received extensive IB training. Although only juniors and seniors are eligible to take IB classes, the effect of the IB program permeates the Sumner Academy curriculum for all grade levels. Students and teachers willingly take on additional challenges to improve the experiences at Sumner.
Math teachers offer tutorial sessions in the summer to prepare new students while the elective teachers offer to teach early morning classes or during their preparation period to accommodate students’ tight schedules. Various students volunteer numerous community service hours tutoring their peers at Sumner or at a neighboring elementary school. In addition, there are numerous clubs, sports and activities for students and over 90 percent of their students belong to at least one extra curricular group.

The academy offers a college preparatory curriculum with educational experiences that promotes responsibility, adaptability and lifelong learning to its diverse student body. Their efforts are to reach beyond and to create and maintain a haven where students and teachers are excited not only about learning but also about excelling.The students and faculty blend rigorous academic studies and exchanges into lives lived fully and committed to making a difference.
