To get the knowledge, skills, and practice to enter a new grade and excel from the start. A student can't just take off all summer and expect to be a "Great Student" come September.
Many students who return from summer vacation have difficulty remembering the math they learned, the rules of grammar, and EVEN how to write. With practice during the summer, next year's math, reading and writing, as well as over all studies, a student has a better chance of performing well during the new school year.
For students who aspire to enter the specialized high schools, this is more so true. To take the SHSAT, students need an entirely NEW skill set in grammar, writing mistakes, difficult reading passages, and math they will not learn for another year or more.
Summer school is the only way to prepare for these types of tests.
