Course Remediation

As you know, D and F grades put your student in danger of not meeting graduation requirements, which in turn will require repeating courses during the summer or the following school year. In addition, students must receive C grades or better for 4-year college admission requirements.


If your student would like to remediate a D or F over the summer, options include:


1) Take the course through MBX summer school in the classroom or through their online remediation program. Information about course offerings and registration is available here: http://mbxfoundation.org/summer-school/summer-school

*Please note that the online classes through MBX are not NCAA approved.

2) Take the course through another WASC accredited High School summer school program (Redondo, Torrance, PV, El Segundo, Fusion, Halstrom, National University Virtual High School etc.) Remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that the course is UC/CSU approved. You can check approval status here: https://hs-articulation.ucop.edu/agcourselist


*Summer School courses are often fee-based and the fees are the responsibility of the family.


Please discuss your expectations and concerns with your child. Your child should make every effort to pass their classes and get C grades or better so they have the most options possible after high school.
