Summer reading

Below are the summer reading texts.  This summer there are two summer reading programs in the Upper School.  One is connected to the English class students will take next year, and the other is a student-led initiative.

Summer reading for academic class

Each English class assigns a summer reading text.  Think of this as the first book on the students’ English class syllabus.  Students should be prepared to discuss the book in class, and will likely be assigned a paper on the book in the early weeks of the first quarter.  

Here are the texts assigned to each class:

  • Ninth Grade English Darius the Great is Not Okay 
  • Tenth Grade English Born a Crime
  • Tenth Grade English (Honors) 1984
  • Eleventh Grade English All My Rage
  • Eleventh Grade English (AP) The Leavers

Summer reading for a student-led biracial author project

In addition to the summer reading connected to the English class, all students are being asked to participate in a student-led project focusing on biracial themes by biracial authors. 

 The book students will be asked to read for this project is Darius the Great Is Not Okay, which is also the text connected to the ninth grade English class.   

As part of this project, students will be expected to write a 250-word personal reflection on Darius the Great is not Okay.  Click here for the handout for details. Click here for more information about the assignment.

Summer Work Answers

 

The school’s guidelines for student dress are not meant to be oppressive or to stifle individual expression. Instead, they are designed to ensure that students will dress appropriately for school. Just as parents’ work clothing may or may not be interchangeable with their “dress up” or recreational wardrobes, so students’ closets may contain items which are not appropriate for school. For example, students may not wear to school t-shirts that bear inappropriate or harassing slogans or that advertise drugs, cigarettes, or alcohol. When questions arise regarding appropriate dress, the faculty and administration will make the final decision as to what is proper/acceptable student attire. Other clothing questions, which arise each year as fashions change, will be answered in light of whether the clothing or accessories in question affect the School community and classroom environment.

Infractions of the dress code will be dealt with by the faculty and administration. If a student violates this policy, the student may be asked to wear appropriate clothing provided by the school over their own clothes or parents may be asked to bring appropriate clothing to school before the student will be admitted to class. Repeated violations may result in the student serving an after-school detention or being sent home.

At Upper School, teachers will advise students of specific items needed for their classes. Most classes use a combination of paperwork and iPads. 

Upper school students should bring,

  • Paper/pencils 
  • Notebook, or something to take notes in
  • Folder, or something to hold handouts 
  • Scientific calculator (Note: Some upper-level math and science classes require students to have a graphing calculator)
  • School-issued iPad and charger (9th grade students and new students will receive their iPads at Orientation)
