Summer School Information

Summer School Parent and Student Information

  • Space is limited. Go to http://bit.ly/NHSSummerSchool to complete the online registration form. Accepted students will be notified prior to the start of 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 monitoring and assisting students. Students should reach out to their counselor for advice 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 15 - 25

    Attendance: 

    • All students enrolled in summer school will be completing credit recovery courses online through at-home learning.
    • Summer school teachers will be available at Northwood during the summer school hours to monitor and assist students via Zoom, via phone or e-mail. 

    Materials 

    Students will need the following materials for class each day.

    • Laptop
    • Notebook with blank paper
    • Pens and pencils
    • Calculator (for all math classes)

    Conduct

    Students are expected to adhere to all rules and policies outlined in the Northwood Student Handbook and the Chatham County Schools Code of Student Conduct. Failure to meet these expectations may result in removal from summer school.

    Grades

    Credit Recovery is for students who received a grade of 50-59 or WC19 in a course and put forth effort to pass the course without success. Students will earn a grade of Pass or Fail for the course and the grade will not be factored into the student’s GPA. The original record of the course being completed and failed or withdrawn will remain on the student’s transcript. Click here for more information on Repeating Courses for Credit vs. Credit Recovery. Students must complete all course requirements by the last day of the summer school session. A student who does not complete the course by the last day of the summer school session will receive a Fail for that summer school course.
