NOTE RE SCHOOL SUPPLIES: In high school, school supplies are very subject-specific, meaning that different teachers (Math, English, Science, etc.) require different supplies. Therefore, we recommend that students come to school prepared with all the basic supplies that the know they will need (backpack, folders, writing utensils, paper, notebooks, etc.), and they will receive lists of any additional required supplies from their teachers during the first days of the school year.
