It's funny how only California has a strong yes

No offense to the good kids in California, but most of the students here SUCK. They are the biggest pain in the butt EVER and are super disrespectful (at least the ones I know). The numbers are appalling.

I took math and English last year. I screwed around in math and I didn't really need to do English. I didn't get math at all during the year which was why I was screwing around and during summer school I totally got it. I'm glad I went to summer school.

I am taking health 2 over this summer, by choice

Because of medical crap. I went to try to get through high school in 4 years. I still had to take a fifth year. I hated that fact at the time but ever since then I've gotten to go to 2 reunions each time because both classes accept me as belonging.????

I took all my history classes in summer school so I could have time to work and be student body pres. This was ages ago! Now I would have used the time to get basic college classes out of the way, not an option back then.

I am currently taking chemistry. Not because i need to, but because i would like to take AP this upcoming year.

I never had to but I took gym in the summer so I had more time for art (my college major)

Drivers Ed was a summer school class way back when.

I was able to attend IU for a summer honors program. What a great experience it was.

I'm taking it right now. I'm getting high school Biology credits so I can take another art elective next year. It's an entire year of material in 6 weeks.
Not everyone who does summer school is stupid.

My state is stupid...
Or we took summer classes and got ahead!!

07/09/13 1:48 am

Sadly, most of the students in our state are stupid. High Schoolers that is... our colleges are quite nice(;

Yes, I did. I took pre calc the summer between freshman and sophomore year so I could take calculus my sophomore year.

I thought it would be fun... I only went for a week.

Yes. For funsies. I took a special English course, Latin, and speech that way and skipped a year of math by taking algebra. I was a weird kid.

Not as weird as me, I took classes every summer so I could graduate HS early. Hated HS. Couldn't pay me to go back, even though it was over 20yrs ago.

No, but I had a math tutor just to keep me at a steady C. I hate math....much so that I don't even play dominoes - and every black person I know plays dominoes! even the drop outs! (No stereotype- that's my reality)

06/30/13 6:05 pm

In college, too. Ideal for short attention spans.

06/30/13 5:25 pm

I did it to get requirements out of the way in a shorter time

I did the summer before 4th grade. I thought it was pointless. I don't remember learning that much.

06/30/13 5:02 pm

Took summer school the summer before my freshman year, again the next summer before sophomore yer and the next before my junior year. I then graduate a full year early.

3rd-4th grade summer, it wasn't too bad, an hour less then regular school, and only four days a week. But the teachers were the type of teacher that when their house gets egged, you say, good.

06/30/13 3:59 pm

Taught it for 5 years, principal for 3. Many of the students I had during the year are there. I warned them, but they never learn. Now I get to see them all summer long. Good thing I like them. My office is the only air conditioned room.

Sooooo hot in the non-air conditioned rooms back then.

My senior year I moved to Texas. Texas History was a requirement to graduate. I had to go to summer school to take it.

We didn't have summer school - I would have loved it

06/30/13 2:10 pm

Only to get ahead. Not because I was behind.

I went but not because I failed a class, I went to get ahead for my senior year

Yes. I actually failed Physical Ed while I was on the track team. Skipped too many classes.

Not really, but I did attend the summer enrichment academies at Oregon State when I was a kid.

06/30/13 8:28 am

Yes. Not because I failed a class, but because I wanted to get ahead in my classes. Also, my mother didn't believe in letting me have a summer off and for whatever reason I chose to do math instead of volunteering or sports camps.

06/30/13 7:14 am

I will next year to get ahead in math.

06/30/13 4:46 am

for three summers to graduate early. also went to school each day an hour early to do PE that way I could take only academics during the normal school day. graduated a year early and joined the army at seventeen.

Just wondering why you would do all that work to join the army, when it sounds like you were competing for a good college?

I took drivers Ed one summer.

victovm the Undying Lands

Yes, but I would call it summer 'school'. A sixth grade P.E. teacher tried teaching us 8th grade Algebra. To sum it up, we learned just about nothing.

Only way I could fit Driver's Ed into the schedule!

I even took it before my freshman year to get ahead :)

Worse than I thought the amount woulc be.

06/30/13 8:30 am

You have to consider that many of us took it to get ahead, not because we were falling behind.

XercesBlue ...
06/30/13 8:30 am

Well.. You don't "have" to consider...

Just to get ahead.
