Why I Took Summer School Some very important point were taken into consideration when I made the decision to take summer school this year. English 12 seemed like the perfect, foolproof course to choose because it would mean less work next year, a second chance if I get a terrible mark, and my undivided attention to a subject I don't excel in.
