TCHS summer school is an opportunity for students to work ahead on earning credit towards meeting high school graduation requirements. It might open up a window for picking up a class the following year that they wouldn’t be able to take otherwise, or it would give them a needed study hall during a particular challenging semester when they otherwise would not have one. Completing a full semester in three weeks means that a great deal is covered daily, but teachers also have more flexibility to create lessons that look and feel different without the interruption of bells. Students should figure on daily homework outside of class. Of course, students do have breaks during each session, but the teacher can schedule those breaks at logical times during the course of that day’s lesson.

Course offerings are dependent on teacher availability. Summer school does not have a long history at TCHS, but thus far it has been offered during the three weeks immediately following the end of semester 2.
