Summer Reading List
Each summer, the school selects one book for the whole community, students and faculty alike, to read together. In addition to that book, the English department asks each student to read a second book, one specific to the course he'll take in the fall. Within the first few days of school, students take tests in class on books assigned by the English department and should prepare for those tests by taking notes as they read--notes on the incidents and details associated with the significant characters.
The 2013 all-school summer reading book is: Shift by Jennifer Bradbury.
The English department adds the following required reading for its courses. Please download the links for details.
Books should be available for purchase through our on-line vendor. However, bargain-savvy families will also want to check for new or used copies of the books through half.com, amazon.com, other Internet sources, current students, local bookstores (including college bookstores) and libraries.
