For continuing students: At Averroes High School, our goal is to help students achieve mastery in every subject. To reach these efforts, various assessments and performance indicators are used to assess students throughout the year. Summer school is required for students who need additional support to acquire mastery.
Summer school is also an opportunity for students who want to challenge themselves and try to complete additional course material. This allows them to be better prepared for upcoming course work in the following year.
For incoming students: Incoming students with content and skill gaps are required to take summer school. During this session, teachers assess individual skills and ensure that each student is placed in their respective, grade appropriate classes. Teachers also provide additional support and resources that can support new students fill in prior school work gaps.
