2020-2021 School Year

Special Note: The English department is working through the summer to incorporate best practices for distance learning into our plans for the 2020-2021 school year. As a result, we will not have a final reading list for families until we return to school in August. Each teacher will provide a reading list in her syllabus, which will be shared with students in the first days of class. All English classes will focus on responding to summer reading books in the first few weeks of school. This will give families plenty of time to secure books in advance. In the meantime, please find an estimate for book costs to assist in budgeting for fall expenses.

Estimated cost by course:
6th:  $37.00 + DGP and Wordly Wise Digital
7th:  $30
8th:  $45
9th:  $40 + DGP
10th: $45
11th: $40
AP Lang: $65
AP Lit: $50
12th: $50
