Summer School Credit & Reports
Summer School Credit
Horace Mann students will only receive credit for courses that fulfill department requirements and are indicated as credit courses. In general, those meeting five or six periods per day are full credit courses that will fulfill a graduation credit. Half credit courses will meet for three periods, morning or afternoon, and can fulfill a graduation credit.
Students who attend other schools should discuss issues of credit with the head of school, advisor, and/or deans of their own school prior to registering. We will forward to the schools any information necessary for them to make these decisions, including course descriptions, textbook information, and/or syllabi.
Summer School Reports
Summer School Science courses and the US History Survey course are divided into three two-week trimesters. Reports are sent home after each of these three marking periods, the third being a final report. Five week full and half credit courses will receive grades roughly every 7-9 days, with the final grade being a final report. It is the goal of the Horace Mann Summer School to maintain a high level of communication with parents throughout the session, thereby increasing the benefit of attending Summer School and the opportunity for each student to realize success in the fast-paced summer session. Parents, likewise, are encouraged to contact the Summer School office or their child's teachers to keep pace with their progress or with any questions and concerns about their child's academic or social life.
