Summer School

QO is pleased to offer a FREE local Summer School program for both credit and non-credit bearing courses this summer! Summer school will be open to all QO students as well as students from other MCPS high schools. Students may take up to one first semester course (A course) and up to one-second semester course (B course) during the summer. Each course will run for three weeks. At the conclusion of the three-week course, students may earn credit for credit-bearing courses.  The current dates for summer school are as follows - Session 1: June 29th – July 19th & Session 2: July 20th – August 9th. We have the option of offering classes either in-person, blended or through a hybrid model or any combination of these models (In-person courses will be hosted at Lakelands Park Middle School). Additional details about location will follow at a later time. Determination on which courses offered will depend on a combination of student need and teacher availability. Please review the QOHS Summer School Information document for additional information to register. Additional questions, contact Mr. Yarborough, Assistant Principal
