Summer School

Summer School

Portsmouth Public Schools will again offer summer school programs for select students (elementary, middle and high) beginning in June 2021. This year, elementary and middle school programs will be able to be offered in-person. High school summer school will continue to be offered virtually. For more information about the programs, please see below.

Elementary School
Teachers will contact the parent/guardian of students who are recommended for summer school (which will be based on academic performance in the 2020-21 school year). If the parent/guardian approves enrollment, then the student will be registered for summer school by the teacher. If there are additional slots remaining, in adherence with COVID-19 regulations, the registration link will be opened to all students.

Elementary schools will hold summer school classes Monday, June 28 – Thursday, July 29. Due to summer renovations, the following locations for the following four schools will be as follows:

  • Douglas Park Elementary students will attend summer school at Brighton Elementary
  • Churchland Elementary students will attend summer school at Churchland Academy
  • James Hurst Elementary students will attend summer school at Victory Elementary
  • John Tyler Elementary students will attend summer school at Westhaven Elementary

Please see this flyer for more information.

Middle School
Like elementary schools, middle school teachers will contact the parent/guardian of students who are recommended for summer school (which will be based on academic performance in the 2020-21 school year). If the parent/guardian approves enrollment, then the student will be registered for summer school by the teacher. If there are additional slots remaining, in adherence with COVID-19 regulations, the registration link will be opened to all students.

Middle school summer classes will be held at Cradock Middle School from Monday, June 28 – Thursday, July 29. Instruction will focus math and reading content for the five-week summer school session. However, a social studies camp will replace seventh-grade reading for one week of instruction and a science camp will replace seventh-grade math for one week of instruction.

High School
Summer school will be available to any student who earned a “D” or “F” in a core course during the 2020-2021 school year, or those seeking credit advancement in Health and PE 9/10. Courses will be offered in a virtual format over two separate three-week sessions (Please note: Health and PE courses require attendance at BOTH sessions for a total of six weeks). A student can take two repeat credit courses or one credit advancement PE course. Session One will take place June 28 – July 15. Session Two will take place July 19 – Aug. 5. The schedule will be 8 a.m. to noon, Monday through Thursday (with no classes on Friday).
