for the first quiz we did a lot of people got 55% including me. she said it's not worth as much in the end, but on midterm she said shes not sure if i'll make the 80 mark or not, since there's only 3 items on it. should i drop it or no? i want an 80-85 % overall

If you don't think it's worth the effort to try to bring it up to the grade you desire with the remaining entries (or think it's likely), do drop it and retake. Make up your mind clearly and don't wait until the full disclosure, when you would already have submitted a number of papers that have gone to waste. If you think you can do it and are wiling, stay in the course. If not, dropping is definitely an option for you right now.

You are allowed to drop a course at any time. But if you do plan to drop it, drop it before the full disclosure day, when your mark gets recorded on your transcript. I doubt it's that hard to reschedule English in day school. Lots of classes run since it is a mandatory subject, and if you're in semester school, you usually get to choose which semester to put it into. By "usually" I simply mean that some classes in one semester could have full sections and may not cater well to your schedule.

If you're really confident that you could get an 80 by the end of summer school, stay. Don't drop a course if it's only because of one bad entry. If you can't handle your teacher, though, as in your essay marks, your test marks and essentially everything else is below your standard, that's when it's wise to drop, since I wouldn't count on making the mark an 80 by the end in that case.

Do you know when full disclosure happens for summer school? You really have until that date to decide. When you get the essay back, read over any comments on it and see if it could be improved, or if your teacher is simply a stingy marker.
