The Summit View Student Council provides students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills. The student body officers, together with class representatives, work to foster school spirit and serve as a student voice for school related issues and concerns. They organize a range of school-wide activities including spirit days, dances, holiday activities, and also run the Student Store. In addition, the Student Council arranges fund-raising efforts to support local charities as well as makes contributions to help in national disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and earthquake relief.
Elections for office are held in the fall of each school year. Students must be in good academic and behavioral standing in order to be eligible to run for office.
