Rising Grades 9-12
Good reading habits are essential for student growth, so all pupils advancing to grades 9-12 will read a book assigned by the English department for their grade level. In the fall of 2021, the department will be hosting forums for the students to discuss these books with peers. The readings for both underclassmen and upperclassmen are inspiring stories based on challenging life experiences. Students must also complete the accompanying project—taking notes to inform their discussions in the fall. See the project assignment for full details about the written component which is due before the first day of school in August (currently scheduled for August 12).
