Summer School

Northwood High School will offer summer school in select courses for current students in grades 9-12. Summer school is for students needing to repeat a course that they previously failed; it is not for students wanting to take a course for the first time. Students will work at their own pace to complete the course using Apex Learning. Teachers will be present to monitor and assist students. Students should see their counselor for advisement on which course they should take to ensure they are taking the right course needed for promotion and graduation. There will be no fee for summer school. Transportation will not be provided.

Dates: June 15th – July 2nd (no Friday classes). Graduating seniors must finish by June 30th.
Time: 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

jostensyearbooks.com. The last day to order online is May 26th, and the price goes up on the day of distribution, May 27th, so don’t wait!
