ISD High School Summer School

Summer School is only available to students who live within the ISD boundaries and were in grades 9-12* during the 2018-19 school year. If you are residing within the ISD boundaries but are home-schooled, attend a Private School or an Online School, please contact the Registrar at your boundary High School to register for Summer School prior to filling out the Summer School registration form.
