Summer instruction is provided for elementary, middle and high school students who need additional time and extra support mastering grade level skills.
Based on teacher recommendations, parent requests, test results and evidence of need, principals will issue invitations in the spring for certain students to attend one or more sessions of P-H-M’s summer school program.
Instruction is very focused, and may cover only math or only reading, depending on the student’s needs. The approach is remedial, prescriptive, and highly supportive. Bus transportation and food service are provided as part of summer school.
Penn High School’s summer program is credit-based, meaning students undertake and complete actual courses for credit, some in the classroom and some online. Students who wish to include summer classes in their schedule should see their counselor.
Information about P-H-M’s summer instructional programs are mailed to families who students participate in the program. Dates, times and locations are posted on the website in the spring.
