Summer School

Spring Ahead to Summer School

Spring break is just around the corner, so why are we already talking about summer school curriculum??  When many people think of summer school, they envision a room filled with students who are goof-offs, woefully clueless, or angst-ridden.  I’ve been a teacher or administrator of a summer school for high school students for almost 15 years, and, in my experience, the stereotypes from comedy movies are outnumbered by the students who actually populate those classrooms.

5 Tips for Staying Focused During Summer Break

It's summer again—a long-awaited time of rest for many students, time to have fun, explore, travel or dedicate yourself to a new or an old hobby. Who doesn’t want that? As we’ve said in the past, we all need a break, and we probably deserve it.

However, long summer vacations could also make you forget a lot of what you’ve learned over the past school year. And we value the time and effort you’ve put during that time, so we’ve come up with the following five tactics to help you stay focused, avoid summer learning loss, and get ahead with your future goals.

When Summer School is the Right Choice for You

Here we are, summer around the corner, the sidewalks soon heating up, and dreams of beach vacations approaching.  But wait.  Maybe you’re just realizing your son has fallen behind in that geometry class.  Maybe your daughter needs better language prep in Spanish or Latin.  Perhaps English is a second language and your child will be more comfortable with classes next term by continuing English studies during the summer.  Or maybe your child wants to go deeper in a topic of interest.
