Summer School

Student working at computerThe Dysart Unified School District conducts Summer School to assist those students who need credits to graduate on time, seek to manage their high school schedule, remediate grades, or wish to graduate as soon as possible.  Students from all four high schools are eligible to attend, as well as students from other districts and charter schools.

For incoming freshmen, Summer School can assist those students who desire to work ahead with classes allowing your high school schedule to open up for those desirable electives.   See options information below.

Summer School is offered online through iSchool.  All classes are offered contingent upon sufficient enrollment.

Summer School teachers are experts in their subject matter and skilled in working with high school students.  Our staff is selected from our talented Dysart Unified School District teachers.

Students are held to the same rigorous academic standards at Summer School as they are during the regular school year.  Courses meet all the standards to fulfill the graduation requirements.

For information about summer school for Kindergarten through 8th grade, please check with your student's school.
