Summer Reading & Coursework

Quincy High School 2023 Summer Reading & Course Work

Quincy High School is excited to announce the launch of the One School, One Book reading program for the 2023-2024 school year! One School, One Book is a program designed to create a shared reading experience within our high school community and to allow teachers, families, and students to have conversations about what they are reading.

All rising 9th through 12th grade Quincy High School students have received a copy of On the Come Up, by Angie Thomas, from Quincy Public Schools which they are expected to read over the summer. In large part, this will replace the traditional summer reading program where different classes read different books, although certain Advanced courses will still require additional reading listed below.

We hope that you and your students will enjoy reading On the Come Up this summer, and we look forward to discussing it as a community when we return to school in September.

Students can find most titles within the Thomas Crane Public Library online catalog. Students will need a Thomas Crane barcode to utilize the catalog. If a student does not already have a barcode they can get one here. Students may also be able to access the titles through the Boston Public Library’s online catalog.

Many of the summer titles are available through Sora, by Overdrive, an online service that offers eBooks and audiobooks accessible by using your QHS Google account login information. Please view the QHS Sora Access Tutorial for directions and further information about Sora. The direct login for QPS Sora can be found here: QPS Sora Login
