The course guide has been released for the 2014 Plymouth School District summer school program, which offers dozens of classes for students in kindergarten through high school.

Summer School will run for five weeks from July 7 to Aug. 8, beginning after the Fourth of the July for the first time in many years. Classes will meet weekdays between 8 and 11:45 a.m. daily at Plymouth High School, Horizon Elementary School and the green space in between. A few additional courses are offered outside the regular Summer School schedule.

While remedial courses are available, the vast majority are designed to keep students thinking and exploring during the summer months. Enrollment is open to all students, regardless of which district they attend during the school year.
