Can I retake a class to improve my unweighted GPA?

My freshman year I didn't do well in math and ended the class with a C. Now as an improved student I want to improve my GPA since the grade is bringing it down, is it possible to retake a class to replace the grade or would I be easier to take the class a second time and have two scores for the same course?

It is possible to retake a class to replace your C but take into account that retaking one class means you might be replacing it with a class that was necessary that year, and youĺl have to make that up. Summer school gets a bad rep from people because it takes up free time, but it really helps when you need to retake a class or just want to get ahead. I think you should either do the summer school or just retake it honestly. Hope this helps!
