Students entering grades 7 through 9
In Upper School, students and their teachers in each grade will all read the same book over the summer. Aspects of the selected book will be integrated into students' classes by their teachers - either briefly or as a major focus of discussion. A common, shared reading experience among students and teachers provides an opportunity to explore and learn more about a particular topic across several disciplines.
In addition to the shared book, students should plan to read at least two additional books from the recommended reading list for their grade.
