Summer School?

Don't worry, I'm not failing. Rather, I was thinking that taking a couple courses during the summer would set me up nicely for my final year.

Rather than taking 5 upper level courses each semester next year, I can take 2 courses over the summer and drop that down to 4 and 4. Less stress = better marks = more time to make money.

I haven't taken summer school before, mostly because I thought there was a stigma about it - it's for losers who have failed a couple classes, or Asians whose parents are making them take every possible class (I have a friend who has been forced into summer school every year since grade 11). The stigma should be that it's for smart people who want to put themselves ahead of the game.

The sun will be impressed with me
Class runs three days a week for a couple hours, so I will still be able to work full-time and make some money online. I think it will work out well.

Also, my city is a tourist hub in the summer because it's so sunny and warm, so I'll finally be able to experience the best my city has to offer. Sweet!

Who here has taken summer school?

I've never taken summer school, I had the same perception as you did. Well, good luck with that!

I took summer school courses in college so I could have a lighter load in the autumn. The classes were way more laid back, and it was well worth it. Go for it!

I actually took it once a rather long time ago. Nothing really interesting to report honestly. It was like normal school with slightly weird hours and a more reprehensible group of classmates.

Sounds good! I'm going to take some extra classes next year in the summer, I need everything I can to get into med. Hope it works out well.

If it works out well, do it!
I went to summer recreation camp when I was 12, so somehow I don't think that makes me qualified to comment on your summer courses. :D

Took night courses to avoid it, they were fun, had a smoke break.

I went to summer school once. Met a lot of really cool people. Everybody was really laid back. Got a good grade too since it's not as hard as regular classes.

I never went to summer school, but I do remember when this movie first came out (yeah I am a bit old). Whatever happened to Mark Harmon anyway?

Summer school is a good thing, it keeps you busy and helps cut down on credits. Like you said, less stress as well!
