Summer School

There are several advantages for students who plan to go to summer school; and the advantages usually far outweigh the inconvenience of attending school during the summer. With so many students working part-time jobs, it is sometimes necessary for students to gain credits during the summer. Summer school allows students the chance to work and to be able to go to school in the summer months. By making use of smaller classes and condensed work loads, these students can complete their work in a shorter period of time than they would during a traditional class.

As beneficial as summer school can be, there are a few aspects of this format to consider. One such consideration is that summer school is usually held for only a few weeks in June and July, which therefore limits the subjects that are available for credit. Any course that requires intense memorization or prolonged skill development may not be able to be completed during the summer. Classes such as advanced math or upper level foreign languages are often limited in summer school offerings. Students usually can take basic classes such as English, math, speech, keyboarding, and some beginning foreign language classes.

Summer school provides an opportunity to gain necessary credits, which can be a definite benefit available for students who have failed core subjects during the regular school year. After getting approval from a school counselor or advisor, students can register to take some of the core courses they need in order to recover credits which are necessary to be promoted to the next grade level, or even to be eligible to graduate on time.

In past years, summer school has been looked upon as a negative alternative for students who have failed during the regular school year. Sometimes this is still the case; however, summer classes are also great resources for students who are interested in graduating early, or even for students who want to free up their regular year schedules for additional electives. The real decision is whether students are willing to give up some of their summer free time; and whether they have the discipline to study during the warm, enticing days of summer!
