As we transition from the school year into summer, we focus on preventing summer learning loss and making sure our students are prepared for the start of the school year in the Fall. Summer learning loss, also known as “summer slide” or “brain drain,” is a phenomenon that affects all grade levels. During the break, students begin to lose academic ground and spend the beginning of the next school year re-learning material.
Our summer reading unites the student body upon return and is discussed in a variety of ways during class time, advisory, and more. For those taking AP classes in the Fall, the work starts in the summer.
