                                             Summer Reading 2012-2013

                            Summer Reading is Required for 11th AP/ IB and 12th AP/IB

                           Summer Reading is Suggested for 9th – 12th Standard/ Honors

     Note: AP/IB courses are college-level, elective courses, so some of the books may contain more mature content
     than a typical high school text. By signing up for these elective courses, students and their parents have accepted
     this higher-level, more mature content. Assessments on the material will be given during the first week of school.
