Summer School

Dates: 

1st semester: June 20th – July 3rd   

2nd semester: July 8th – July 19th

Hours: 8:30 - 2PM

EVHS will offer make-up courses this summer for students who earned a D or F grade in a class required for graduation and/or to meet A-G requirements.  Some classes are taught by a teacher, and some classes are completed online in Cyber High, but all classes are in-person.  

Students in need of summer school were added to the initial interest list when they met with their counselor in Jan/Feb to plan their schedules for next year.  Those students will receive a follow up email in spring to complete registration.  If students have a new need for summer school, contact their counselor before the end of the school year.  The meetings with the counselors where students planned schedules DID NOT sign you up for summer school.  Students still need to fill out the summer school application.

After May 31, all summer school communication should be directed to the EVHS Summer School Coordinator, Dan Johnson: JohnsonDan@esuhsd.org. 

The following make-up courses will be offered this summer:


Notes:  

EVHS does not offer any summer enrichment classes.  World Languages, Science, Arts, and PE are not offered in summer.  Summer school funding is provided by the state; because EVHS is not a Title I school, we receive significantly less funding than other schools in ESUHSD and, thus, are able to offer fewer classes.  

EVHS MATH DEPARTMENT  - SUMMER SCHOOL SUGGESTIONS:

 

As a department, we strongly advise against students taking any summer school math course to advance


Over the years we have seen too many students who have taken math in summer school to advance a year perform poorly in their subsequent math classes.  Oftentimes the poor performance does not show up until the high level courses of Math Analysis or Calculus.


The school year is 38 weeks long, while summer school classes are only 5 weeks. Taking a math course in summer does not allow students adequate time to learn, process, and retain the material and thought processes needed for success in future math courses.  Only students who currently have an A in their math class and find it to be VERY EASY should consider taking summer math to advance.  An A is not enough. All students who do take summer math should be prepared to seek extra help the following year.


Also, EVHS has no control over the curriculum offered, the teachers who teach the classes, nor the level of difficulty of the course. Summer school programs are not always aligned with the EVHS math curriculum and may not cover all the lessons that are need to advance.
