AP Summer Assignments

Many AP courses at WRHS require some academic work over the summer. This is to ensure students arrive at the start of school prepared for the rigors of the college-level AP classes and for the amount of material that must be covered for the AP tests in May.

A course's summer assignment can be accessed by clicking on the course name below. These assignments will be updated through the end of the school year.


*The Administration has decided that there will be no required summer reading for English 9 Honors or AP classes for the year 2020/2021.  As an English Department, we believe that any reading is good reading, so if  you are looking for something to read and keep your brain engaged, we suggest anything that interests you off the list put together and published by Teacher-Librarian, Alana Stern, found here:  http://wrhslibrary.weebly.com/summer-reading.html
