2016 Summer School

The Francis Howell School District Summer School Programs include students in grades K to 12. We have both remedial and enrichment classes and there is no cost to attend our programs. We do collect attendance of the student, which is how the district receives funds to make it possible to offer these programs.

This is the third year for this program. Middle school students get to high school and some have a difficult time. Using a students’ history of attendance, grades and discipline, identified students will be invited to attend a 10-day session held close to the beginning of the new school year.  The focus of the program will be to provide students a head start on the upcoming school year. Topics covered in this program include how to prepare for the pace of high school, getting involved in extra-curricular activities, and how to avoid the pitfalls that many freshmen experience during their weeks of high school.

The Summer Success Class will run for 10 days. There is no cost to the student and transportation will be provided within district boundaries if requested at the time of enrollment.
