RHS English Summer Reading

Riverside High School Summer Reading for the 2021-2022 School Year


All Honors English students will be expected to complete summer reading before the first day of school in August 2021.

Students enrolled in Honors English must read ALL assigned books.  Individual English teachers reserve the right to use Summer Reading books for additional instruction and assignments at the beginning or throughout the semester.  It does not matter whether a student has Honors English in the fall or spring; summer reading will be used in both semesters.  Students who have Honors English in the spring semester will need to review their assigned novels before spring semester begins.
