Summer Reading

At Herron, we see summer as an opportunity to extend learning and prepare for the next level of education. As a classical liberal arts high school that prepares students for acceptance into college, Herron High School recognizes reading as the most effective means of improving reading comprehension across the curriculum.

How Do I Obtain Books?

Students must obtain their summer reading books from a library, a bookstore, or an online bookseller such as www.amazon.com. Frequently, teachers ask students to bring their copies to school during the first few weeks for discussion and activities. Herron does not provide books for summer reading.

Originality and Plagiarism

Any written assignment prepared as part of the Summer Reading Program must be an original work by the student. Relying on information from any outside or online sources such as www.sparknotes.com without crediting those sources may result in failing the assignment and possible disciplinary consequences.
