Is summer school considered bad when applying for universities?

I want to do grade 11 and 12 english in summer school because most of the courses I am taking are a lot of work. English at my school has a lot of essays and homework, so taking it in summer school will lessen the workload, especially since I am taking 3 sciences and 2 maths in one school year....

Is taking 4 sciences in one semester reasonable?

I want to take grade 11 physics, biology, chemistry, and grade 12 chemistry all in grade 11. I would have two each semester, would this be too hard to organize? #science #school #courses #highschool...
