Summer school relieves stress

For many students, the ideal summer is spent with friends, going to movies or family vacations. Most do not view summer school as a relaxation method.

Administration offers two types of summer school for students: review and original credit. While review can improve an existing grade, original credit lets you relieve an over crowded regular school schedule.

?Review is what you have already taken and want to get a better grade,? Gary Schultz, principal, said. “Original credit lets you take extra classes.?

A large percentage of students take the original credit due to schedule complications.

?Students should take summer school because it help de-clutter their schedule for next year,? Sammie Krikorian, ?08, said. ?It brings their stress level down as well.?

Most students want to take classes over the summer to have more extra curricular activities during the year. Having a hard class over the summer also allows them concentrate on that one subject, rather than juggling seven at once.

?Having summer school allows students to take hard classes,? Schultz said. ?It makes it easier to focus and concentrate.?

The campus differs from the traditional form of summer school as students do not attend classes with teachers and or have a particular time frame. Students are given packets that must be completed individually.

?I think it is easier because there is less to do than during a school year with many classes,? Daniel Edwards, ?09, said. ?You can just find the answers in the book instead of listening to a long teacher lecture.?

The packets consist of five or ten units of which is equivalent to one semester or a full year.

?Students’ have to do the required curriculum,? Schultz said. ?This is completing the twelve books on the subject being taken.?
