One sibling might be enjoying his or her two month break while the other has to sit in class working.
Over breaks you tend to forget what you learned before the break. No matter how short the break is, you still forget key ideas on what you learned. With three fairly long breaks in the middle of the year, most of the education time would be spent catching up and reviewing old work rather than learning new school concepts. In conclusion, you would be less educated with shorter breaks throughout the year. One reason we should have one large summer breaks is that students and teachers look forward to having some nice long time off for themselves.

They say that all year round school is horrible because it takes away summer vacation – that it takes away time for long vacations. There are three main pros of having an all year round school. The traditional style is out of date, during the summer parents don’t know what to do with their kids and the knowledge loss is decreased and the third is vacations. Even though the list of cons is longer than the list of pros of having an all year round school calendar I believe that the short list of pros should be the reason that we leave the traditional school calendar in the past.

Having three other academic courses will turn this into an impossible task; therefore, I'm taking English in the summer so I have almost the whole day to get started. To conclude, by taking English, a subject that's not my best, in the summer, I'm greatly increasing the positive outcomes to come out of my last year at high school.
