Summer Reading - Riverside High School
Riverside High School is closed to visitors without an appointment. Masks must be worn on campus at all times.

At Riverside, 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, Riverside 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 Frequently, teachers ask students to bring their copies to school during the first few weeks for discussion and activities. Riverside 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.comwithout crediting those sources may result in failing the assignment and possible disciplinary consequences.
