• Dear AP & Pre-AP English Students,


    At Aberdeen High School, we encourage personal reading for personal gain.  Through reading experiences, students gain vocabulary, background knowledge, and insight.  


    We ask students seeking the Pre AP and AP experience to read selected works over the summer. Please review the requirements below for your class.


    Books in bold can be checked out of the Aberdeen High School library for summer reading. Books are available at the public library as well, and some are available online for free depending on publication date.
