Upper School Summer Academic Requirements

Children and young adults need ongoing opportunities to practice essential academic skills, particularly reading and math, to prevent a loss of knowledge and proficiency gained during the school year. Many recent studies indicate that elementary students’ performance falls by one month during summer break.

In an effort to best prepare your child for the next school year, Oak Hill School developed specific reading and math expectations to be completed during summer break for students in all grade levels. This summer review and practice will help ensure students retain the academic skills acquired this year and are ready to advance their learning at the start of the new school year.
